A Closer Look
The card features the newest Twin Frozr V cooling design. The card overall is extremely slim, not even taking up the traditional 2 slot thickness, but the PCB is around 1 inch wider; this means slimmer chassis’ may have a problem with compatibility.
The backplate on these cards is gorgeous; a silhouette of the Gaming dragon, intricate cooling vents and screw surrounds are all dotted all around the cover.
At the end of the card, MSI have left the end open to aid with heat dissipation.
Looking at the top of the card, you have the usual Sli connections, full card brace, MSI LED Logo, 2x 8-pin PCIe connection and 3x heat pipes.
The fans included in this design are the new Torx fan design. Every other fan blade is angled steeper to help force the air down faster.
At the business end of the card, there is 1x DVi connector, 3x DisplayPort and 1x HDMi.
