Heatsink
Lurking under the cover of the GAMING graphics card is an engineering masterpiece designed to keep the graphics card cool. Every tiny detail of the intricate heatsink plays an essential part in providing a cool & quiet gaming experience.

Airflow Control Technology
Using advanced aerodynamics, Airflow Control Technology directs more air directly onto the TWIN FROZR VI heat pipes. The special deflectors on the heat sink enlarge the surface area, which means lower temperatures and better gaming.

Smooth Heat Pipes
Up to 8mm thick copper heat pipes with a smooth squared shape at the bottom maximize heat transfer from the surface of the copper base plate.

Solid Baseplate
To temper the heat generated by a powerful GPU, MSI GAMING series graphics cards use a solid nickel-plated copper base plate. The base plate catches the heat from the GPU and transfers it to the heat pipes for dissipation so you can keep cool.

Premium Thermal Compound
Every detail counts when it comes to creating the ultimate thermal design, which is why TWIN FROZR VI uses a premium thermal compound to make sure it outlives the competition.

Close Quarters Cooling
Below the heatsink you find the close quarters cooling which enables you to push the MSI GAMING card to the max.

• Rugged Anti Bending strip.
• Memory Cooling Plate for stable & higher overclocks.
• PWM Heatsink covering the length of the card to ensure cool temperatures.

Extra Power Input
A tailored PCB design higher performance and extra cooling comes with an extra 6-pin connector to allow for overclocking beyond the limits.

• Larger PCB for extra cooling.
• 8-Pin (150Watt) power connector.

Enhanced PWM Design
A 8-Phase PWM design with High Quality Military Class components ensures extreme reliability and superb overclockablity and enhanced efficiency.

• Hi-C CAPs.
• Super Ferrite Chokes.
• Japanese Solid Caps.

Backplate
A powerful graphics card needs a strong build to harness its performance. MSI GAMING X graphics cards are fitted with a solid metal back plate to make it extra tough. The matte black finish completes the TWIN FROZR VI design to perfection.

Multi GPU
Gaming enthusiasts are always looking for more performance to get the ultimate experience. Using multiple graphics cards in Crossfire is a great way to find out just how good it gets. MSI GAMING graphics cards fully support multi GPU technologies.
