NVIDIA Watercooled N285GTX HydroGen OC GTX285 1GB DDR3 PCI-E

MSI NVIDIA Watercooled N285GTX HydroGen OC GTX285 1GB DDR3 PCI-E


Nvidia GTX285 pre-fitted with a waterblock - cool and quiet running with massive performance to boot!

MSI's unique N285GTX HydroGen OC features an exclusive Waterblock Thermal cooler with an ISO Standard Size Pipe Thread design in addition to All Solid Capacitors. This water cooling solution provides a low operating temperature while staying very quiet. Furthermore, the MSI N285GTX HydroGen OC is equipped with a 1-slot design and therefore suitable for a three-way SLI system.

ISO Standard Pipe Threads

The MSI N285GTX HydroGen uses the internationally accepted G Inch (DIN ISO 228-1) standard for the water tank pipe thread. Power users and gaming enthusiasts can use 3-way SLI with the MSI N285GTX HydroGen OC, which is based on a 1-slot design. The 1-Slot solution also reduces the actual weight of the graphics card whereby weight pressure on the slot is minimised.

Extra long lifespan capacitors

High performance graphics cards consume a lot of power. A power supply's performance has a direct impact on the total lifespan, stability and overclocking capabilities. The MSI N285GTX HydroGen OC is therefore equipped with all solid capacitors, ensuring a long lifespan and great power efficiency.
