TWIN FROZR VI Cooling
Advanced GPU Cooling Technologies
The GAMING X 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.
This RX 580 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 580 GPU are copper heat-pipes running through the cards fins. These 8mm thick pipes have been made with a smooth square shape, this will maximize heat transfer from the surface of the copper base plate.
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 - further increasing the cooling.
GPU Fan Design
Dispersion Fan Blade
Steeper curved blade, accelerates airflow, increasing effectiveness
Traditional Fan Blade
Pushes down a steady airflow to the massive heatsink below.
Dual TORX Fan Power
Just like in games, the exclusive MSI TORX 2.0 Fan technology uses the power of teamwork to allow the TWIN FROZR VI to achieve new levels of cool. TORX 2.0 Fan design generates 22% more air pressure for supremely silent performance in the heat of battle.
ZERO FROZR RX 580
During intense gaming or benchmarking
Completely silent during idle, multimedia or light gaming
Intelligent Fan Power Cooling
First introduced in 2008 by MSI, ZeroFrozr technology has made its mark and is now the industry standard among graphics cards. It eliminates fan noise by stopping the fans in low-load situations. This means you can focus on gaming without the noise of spinning fans.
