Stylize Your MSI GTX 1070 with RGB LED

Through the MSI Gaming App each LED on the 1070 GAMING can be controlled individually and customized using the various animation effects. These animatiosn range from responding to game or music sounds to a breathing effect - of course they can always be turned off.


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.

Airflow Control

This GTX 1070 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 1070 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.

Solid 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.


Dispersion Fan Blade

Steeper curved blade, accelerates airflow, increasing effectiveness

Traditional Fan Blade

Steeper curved blade, accelerates airflow, increasing effectiveness

Dual TORX Fan Power

TORX fan technology 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.


Fans Spinning

During intense gaming or benchmarking

Fans Stop

Completely silent during idle, multimedia or light gaming

FROZR Cooling

MSI released this technology in 2008 and it has since become an industry standard among graphics cards. FROZR will eliminate fan noise by stopping the fans in low-load situations, meaning you can keep focus on your gaming, streaming or other media without the noise of spinning fans.



Rugged Anti Bending strip


Memory Cooling Plate for stable & high overclocks


Larger PCB for extra cooling


Extra 6 pin (75 Watt) power connector


PWM Heatsink with micro fins to ensure cool temperatures

Military Class 4

A deciding factor in your graphics card’s performance is the quality of components thata re used. GAMING X 1070 makes use of only MIL-STD-810G certified components to ensure the highest quality possible. When stress tested under torturous circumstances these components have proven very durable.



The best environment for minimal fan noise


Balance between in-game performance and silence


Max performance from higher clock speeds and fan performance

MSI GeForce GTX 1070 GAMING X 8GB GDDR5 VR Ready Graphics Card, 1920 Core, 1582 MHz GPU, 1771 MHz Boost, Twin Frozr VI is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing upgrade This was an amazing investment, especially coming from my old GTX 960, which could barely run modern games on medium to high settings at 45fps. Now, I'm using supersampling to run games at 1440p/4k at over 80, with settings cranked! My only gripe is that the fan lights on the shroud aren't RGB to match the side logo, but it's a small detail.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great 1070 card, with minor LED (software) issues This card is truly a solid 1070 unit. It's extremely quiet and, I have to say, if playing older games like Left 4 Dead 2 without even the fan on the card needing to come on (because the card is so cool even with passive methods) is impressive, playing a modern game like Doom on ultra detail with the fan either on just low, or again not bothering to even come on, is astounding! My only issue with the card is the fact the MSI software for controlling the LED settings:- 1) Has to be run on Windows start up as the settings are not simply committed to the unit's BIOS. 2) If you have other LED devices (eg: RGB keyboards) it can conflict with them through what appears to be sheer shoddy programming - The option to say "Do not affect this device" is ignored! As such, if you have other RGB devices, you have little choice but to not run the MSI software and therefore run the card with its default RGB settings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant card I paid for this card, very expensive and was not sure how well it would fair. I am pleased to say I am absolutely in love with this card, no noide whatsoever under 60°C and literally at 79°C (max for me usually) it's still real quiet. It's quite astounding. Definitely worth the money. Will last for a real long time. Plus you can overclock!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent card Installed easily and incredible performance. The RGB lighting software is pants though its extremly annoying and not fit for purpose if MSI fix this then the card is perfect as the overall build quality is extremly high. Fortunatly for me my cards are out of sight but if they were on display you'd literally have to reset the lighting every time you turn the pc on or have an annoying piece of software open itself up on your desktop each time you startup your pc. Can't understand why MSI have got this so wrong, thought it was me for a long time but have heard of others with same misgivings. Still if the RGB control software is all I can moan about then its not a bad graphics card......... Overkill for 1080p gaming and not enough on its own for 4k.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent card for a mid-high end system Bought the Gaming X 1070 to replace my old 670, the performance increase is staggering with the card barely getting warmer than my old card and remaining almost completely silent throughout use... I'm yet to find a game that'll push it to a point where the fans go higher than 40% Well worth the money for anyone looking for a current generation card to power the latest games, especially if you're looking for something to feed a VR headset.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving it Beautiful, excellent designed GPU, on the plus side too; I don't need to overclock this in the slightest, as the factory clock is very good as is. So I upgraded from a EVGA 680GTX, and the difference is exactly as i dreamed it would be. I bought this card over the 1080gtx as well the £280 price tag difference for a meager 10% performance increase was not worth it in my eyes. I currently run Witcher 3 on 1080 3D monitor at 120Hz and no issues at all its all on ultra and playing at over 60fps, I will be upgrading to a 4K monitor soon, so again this gpu will serve me well. I will state this card is massive when it comes out the box... I have a Corsair 380T in white, and this was an insane squeeze... but I managed it after a little bit of cable rerouting, so be advised on the overall size and check you have space. Otherwise: Fallout 4 250 mods installed and all dlc on ultra with enb's and 2k texture packs installed running at 120fps Skyrim (original mine looks better than remastered already) over 300 mods installed running all 2-4k textures, all water, tesselation, paralax etc all on running enb's etc I've set it up to look photorealistic... the game folder is 84gb in size: game running at 80fps. Witcher 3 on ultra: 70-100fps Rise of the tomb raider: 110fps It has a nice feature when its not being used that the fans remain off... however when the card is at max chat... which I was doing some CAD rendering the other day the fans at max speed are relatively loud... but the acoustics on the corsair 380T does make most things sound loud as the fans are directed at you when its on its legs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super quiet Overall very happy with this card, its very quiet and is a huge improvement over my old 560ti :) The packaging was pretty basic though, no cables included either. Be aware this had Micron memory typr not Samsung. If you want to overclock, some forums have mentioned the revisions with Samsung memory OC much better.
