Leading international graphics card and motherboard maker MSI adds to the global legend of its Hawk series with the new N560GTX-Ti Hawk graphics card. The all new N560GTX-Ti Hawk is equipped with the latest Twin Frozr III dual fan cooling design, featuring MSI's exclusive Propeller Blade technology that delivers 20% more airflow than conventional fans and reduces GPU temperature by up to a staggering 17 degrees. The 8+1 phase PWM design also doubles the power for GPU, which, combined with Triple Overvoltage technology, further improves the overclocking potential of the N560GTX-Ti Hawk. With its graphics card cooling, power, high overclocking potential and stability, the N560GTX-Ti Hawk stands out on top among the industry's GeForce GTX 560 Ti based graphics cards.



Exclusive Propeller Blade Technology for 20% More Airflow
The MSI N560GTX-Ti Hawk features the advanced Twin Frozr III cooling solution. MSI's exclusive Propeller Blade technology delivers 20% more airflow compared to conventional fans, while the air channels on the fan blades expand the airflow area to carry away more heat from graphics card components. When coupled with dual 8cm PWM fans, super heat pipe technology and nickel-plated copper base, the result is a more efficient thermal dissipation solution, allowing the Twin Frozr III to achieve a staggering 17 degrees of temperature reduction versus the reference cooling design.

MSI's proprietary P/S Switch function allows users to change the speed of the dual fans according to personal preference and usage environments. Performance mode helps to keep the GPU temperature down even under high loads for the best performance, while Silent mode balances fan noise with thermal management during games or multimedia usage.

Improved Power Supply and Triple Overvoltage for Greater Overclocking Power
To provide users with the best overclocking performance, the N560GTX-Ti Hawk features an 8+1 phase PWM design. This boost improves overclocking stability by doubling the current output of the reference 4+1 phase design. MSI's proprietary Afterburner overclocking utility allows control over GPU/Memory/PLL voltages for unleashing the full overclocking potential of the N560GTX-Ti Hawk!

Using the Afterburner overclocking utility, amateur overclockers can easily monitor their graphics card's condition, simplifying the overclocking process. For the most demanding users, MSI has provided multi-meters at the voltage measurement points for monitoring GPU/Memory/PLL voltages. The N560GTX-Ti Hawk is truly an overclocker's essential!

Handpicked Components for the Highest Quality
The MSI N560GTX-Ti Hawk Graphics Card uses Military Class components that have come to represent the highest quality and stability among users. The new Military Class II specifications now include Tantalum capacitors with 8-times the lifetime of solid capacitors, SFC choke that provides 30% more power, and solid-cap capacitors with a 10 year service life. All of these components serve to ensure the highest quality and stability of the graphics card.

The N560GTX-Ti Hawk has many exclusive features such as the Twin Frozr III cooling module with Propeller Blade technology, Triple Overvoltage support with Afterburner, the 8+1 phase PWM design and the latest Military Class II components. The design of the graphics card represents MSI's commitment to constant innovation in its quest to provide consumers with the newest features and extreme overclocking potential.

Why do MSI have 2 custom coolers? Is the price/quality so different that it warrants to have them both out for the same GPU?
I wish there was a thorough comparison of the coolers, say on a GTX560.

Three if you count the copper "Twin Frozr II Golden Edition" which if you ask me should've been on 580/570 not 560.



Copper heatsink like this on the Lightning would've been spectacular.

MSi want to be the king of GFX overclocking.
They already are IMO, next card will definitely be Msi.

Interesting to see the price of this card, and also how Twin Frozr III compares to Twin Frozr II, as there is already a MSI 560 Ti Twin Frozr card out there. Hoping for better overclocking, more silence and better temps.
