    In the graphics card industry every manufacturer is particularly focusing on development and research for special thermal solutions. No matter how strong a product’s 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 the component level in thermal solutions, fans, bases and heat pipes etc. represent important parts that more or less have an 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 efficiency. Take for example the dual fan design which resembles 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 the incorporation of 5 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 maximizes 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.

    It is precisely because of the improvement in key cooling components that Twin Frozr thermal design in field tests with similar reference design solutions of other manufactures outperformed those by almost 8 degrees Celsius, regardless if under low or high load. This clearly shows the Twin Frozr’s outstanding thermal performance. At present this technology can already be used on a wide range of high-end NVIDIA graphics cards such as the GTX 285, GTX 275 and GTX 260 etc. This is the perfect solutions for users who demand high performance and low temperatures at the same time.

    This does look and pretty damn sweet. Both visually and on paper. If i had a noisy 200 series card i would consider this very much - and most likely splash out on it.

    self bragging all the way

    guru3d has tested a GTX260 with this cooling and it performs badly (100 degrees furmark load)

    Why did they place a tube in the middle of two fans, the air is flowing out each end, not through the middle.

    Im wondering why they arent porting this over to ATIs current cards, hell even last gen cards. We all know how much heat the 4850 puts outs (4870/4890 Im sure does too) and the 3800 series had a nice heat output as well.

    53 degrees difference between idle and load at 100% fan(dual)? Those numbers are either wrong or the cooler is defective. I have MSI 8800GT with 4 smaller heatpipes and it is great- 756/1782 is 60 under load with around 15-20 degrees difference idle/load.
    I read about the same cooler on GTX285- 100%fan 69 C , or 29 difference idle/load. 285 has around 70 W higher consumption.

    The 4850 actually isn't that hot.

    The reference cooler just sucks.
    Most of it is painted aluminum.

    Actually if you buy the MSI 4850 OC edition it comes with a cooler almost exactly like this one except theres one fan. It works unbelievable good. My idle temps are around 35 and they have never gone past 60 on load. Even on OCCT and furmark

    the 200 series stock coolers are not noisy at all... only at full load, but then my PSU gets even noisier. Z

    But based on the design of the cooler it seems like Guru 3d got a really defective one, or they were in a setup which did not allow fresh air to enter.
