PLAY HARD STAY SILENT
The much anticipated return of MSI’s iconic dual fan GAMING series. Combining a mix of black and gunmetal grey with a classy brushed metal backplate, this masterpiece provides you premium design with magnificent and smooth RGB light effects on the outside. The new MSI GAMING card is designed to amaze you!
BRILLIANT DISPLAY OF COLORS

A fresh new look & feel is just a few clicks away. Not feeling the hype or just prefer to go dark for a bit? Turning the LEDs off is just as easy.
WE'VE GOT YOUR BACK
Rocking a classy brushed look, the backplate on the GAMING series provides a nice visual finish to the card.
Besides toughening the card, the backplate also helps to passively cool the card. Using thermal pads to transfer the heat and holes to increase airflow and dissipation.
TWIN FROZR 7 THERMAL DESIGN
The 7th generation of the famous MSI TWIN FROZR Thermal Design brings the most advanced technology for ultimate cooling performance. It features the new TORX FAN 3.0 combined with groundbreaking aerodynamic feats. This means stable performance and a silent experience are guaranteed thanks to low temperatures.
TORX 3.0 FAN
A brand new version of the iconic MSI TORX fan pushes the limits of thermal performance yet further than before. The new trims clearly visible on the traditional fan blade create a focused airflow which in turn is pushed down by the dispersion fan blades for increased static pressure.
Dispersion Fan Blade
has a special curved blade which accelerates the airflow, increasing its effectiveness.
Traditional Fan Blade
pushes down a steady airflow to the massive heatsink below.
MASTERY OF AERODYNAMICS
In our quest to provide the best cooling, we have mastered the art of Aerodynamics.
Airflow Control Technology guides the airflow directly onto the heatpipes, while simultaneously creating more surface area for the air to absorb more heat before leaving the heatsink.
ZERO FROZR: STAY UNDETECTED
First introduced in 2008 by MSI, ZERO FROZR technology stops the fans completely when temperatures are relatively low, eliminating all fan noise when no cooling is needed. When the heat is on during gaming, the fans will automatically start spinning again to keep your powerhouse cool.
During intense gaming or benchmarking
Completely silent during idle, multimedia or light gaming
The heatsink provides better heat dissipation and strengthens the card.
The copper heatpipes running through the massive array of aluminum fins are the key to spreading the heat along the full length of the heatsink. At the point where they touch base and collect the heat, they are consolidated as close as possible for maximum effect.
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 so you can keep cool.
THERMAL COMPOUND X
Every detail counts when it comes to creating the ultimate thermal design, which is why MSI Graphics Cards use a premium thermal compound to make sure it outlives the competition.
Ample amounts of thermal pads are used to allow various components to transfer heat to the heatsink for better cooling.
TRACES OF BRILLIANCE
Underneath all the metal are the multilayered electric highways that make up the Printed Circuit Board. They connect all the vital components and allow them to communicate at lightning speed.
CLOSE QUARTERS COOLING
A die-cast metal sheet acts as a Close Quarters Heatsink for the memory modules and doubles as an Anti-Bending safeguard by connecting to the IO Bracket.
Get the most out of your MSI graphics card in terms of performance and experience almost unlimited customization options with the included software.
To improve the experience with MSI software, we have embarked on a quest to consolidate as much of our software as possible into one unified suite. We are excited to share the first version of this gargantuan project which will be known as Dragon Center.
Eventually Dragon Center will be the only MSI software you need to install for full functionality of your MSI Desktop, Graphics Card, Motherboard or even Gaming Gear. Thanks to a modular concept, the application will automatically detect new MSI hardware once added. Based on the hardware in your system it will offer the relevant software drivers for your specific setup.
This is the very first step in a new direction and Dragon Center will evolve to grow and improve in the months ahead.
Please try the current BETA build of Dragon Center and let us know what you think!
