MSI’s new TWIN FROZR VI Thermal Design raises the bar of Graphics Card air cooling. TORX Fan 2.0 is the enhanced version of the patented TORX Fan technology which generates 22% more air pressure for better cooling performance while further reducing noise levels. The new fans are equipped with Double Ball Bearings to ensure lasting smooth and silent operation. Connected to the huge heatsink are 8mm copper heat pipes with a squared shape at the bottom for optimal heat transfer from the solid nickel-plated copper baseplate combined with premium thermal compound X to keep the Pascal powerhouse cool.
The MSI GeForce® GTX 1080 SEA HAWK is the result of a revolutionary partnership which combines MSI’s top-notch graphics card engineering with the popular Corsair Hydro Series liquid cooler. This ensures that the SEA HAWK stays at least as cool as it looks while providing extreme gaming performance thanks to vastly increased clock speeds out of the box.
