GAMING-X 480 COOLING SYSTEM

Advanced GPU Cooling Technologies

The GAMING-X 480 from MSI has various aspects to help keep this gaming GPU as cool as possible. Every detail of this intricate heat-sink plays an essential part in providing a cool and quiet gaming experience.

Airflow Control

This RX480 utilizes 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, creating lower temperatures and better gaming.

Smooth Heat Pipes

Embedded within the GAMING X RX480 GPU are copper heat-pipes running through the cards fins. These pipes have been made with a smooth square shape to maximize heat transfer from the surface of the copper base plate.

Solid Base-Plate

To temper the heat generated by a powerful GPU, MSI's GAMING X 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 - further increasing the cooling.

Dual TORX Fan GPU Power

TORX fan technology built into the GAMING X RX 480 works in teamwork with TWIN FROZR VI to achieve new levels of cooling. The fans design generates 22% more air pressure for supremely silent performance when gaming. The fans also feature double ball-bearings for a strong and lasting core for years of smooth gaming - also helps with noise elimination.

It's been a good start to the year for PC enthusiasts. Intel has unleashed the deca-core Core i7-6950X and Nvidia has served up a suitable partner in the form of the high-end GeForce GTX 1080. Handy, if you happen to have thousands of pounds to pour into your next PC, but for everyone else a more mainstream solution is needed to sate our appetites.
