I bought a PC 4 years ago - excellent customer support

I bought a PC 4 years ago and it has been great, consistently high performance. We upgraded the OS but not the BIOS and... (14th December 2018 via Trustpilot)



Take your DirectX 10 gaming beyond HD, with the power of GeForce GTX 285 GPUs

In the graphics card industry every manufacturer is particularly focusing on development and research for special thermal solutions. No matter how strong a products performance, if it is not possible to guarantee stable and low temperature operation at all times, such high performance doesn't make a good product. This is especially the case for high-end products which can easily consume more than 150W and therefore need advanced thermal provisions. In order to meet the particular thermal dissipation demands of power users, the global high-end graphics card and professional motherboard manufacturer MSI Technology, introduced their exclusively developed Twin Frozr thermal design. This brand new thermal design incorporates a dual fan, 5 heatpipes, an extra large heat sink and a copper-nickel base. When compared to reference fan designs of the same level MSI's thermal solution is by far exceeding in performance and low temperature, making it one of the best design available on the market today.

High-performance and noise-controlled dual fan design

When it comes to thermal performance the fans, bases and heat pipes represent important parts that impact on the overall heat dissipation. MSI's exclusive Twin Frozr thermal design pays particular attention to those three essential components in order to improve heat dissipation. For example the dual fan design, resembling a turbo-propeller fighter concept, giving it not only a more attractive appearance but more importantly improves the overall airflow and convection, and thereby increasing cooling efficiency by more than 50%. In order to address any potential noise issue, the fan speed is automatically temperature-controlled by dual-PWM fans, resulting in the optimum balance between cooling performance and noise.

Powerful cooling by five heatpipes, an extra large heat sink and a copper-nickel base

As for the heat dissipation, Twin Frozr is equipped with an extra large copper-nickel base heat sink that prevents heat accumulation and at the same time enhances heat transfer. In addition the industry's one and only 5 heatpipe design maximises heat transfer to the heat sink fins which substantially improves cooling efficiency. With high-end products such as e.g. the N285GTX, the integrated SuperPipe technology allows for an even more heat transfer resulting in further efficiency increases.
