    There has been an influx of non-reference graphics cards based on the GeForce 9800 GTX+ graphics processor, over the last few weeks. MSI made its addition, with the N9800GTX PLUS-T2D512-OC. Like every other manufacturer making news for releasing such products, MSI designed its own PCB. The cooler chosen has featured on several MSI cards, in the past, including some models based on the GeForce 8800 GT and 9600 GT. This time around, MSI changed the cooler's shroud with a more designer one. This is only a cosmetic change. The cooler remains to be the heatpipe through aluminum fin design.

    Unlike the custom design 9800 GTX+ cards from some other manufacturers, MSI released its card factory overclocked. The card ships with clock speeds of 760/1880/2300 MHz (core/shader/memory) against the reference speeds of 738/1836/2200 MHz. The card comes with 512 MB of GDDR3 memory. The package is to include a copy of Rainbow Six Vegas 2. It is to be priced at roughly US $248 in Europe. MSI will be shipping two designs under the same model number and SKU. The first being this, and the other is a 100% reference NVIDIA PCB + Cooler design.

    Evil card makers and NVIDIA. Had mine for 2 weeks, looking for aftermarket cooler and now there's tons of them with one already in :D This one seems the best, nice big heatsink for VRM too. Innos DHT has 2pin fan, this one PWM and one cheap Inno3D design was enough for me.

    Why are heatpipes so damn sexy. It's like looking at cleavage how they pop from underneath the cover/aluminum.

    honestly, I dont like coolers like that. I mean yea it LOOKS good but I'd rather have the hot air being routed out of my case.
