Innovative TORX 2.0 Fan Technology
Just like in games, the exclusive MSI TORX 2.0 Fan technology uses the power of teamwork to allow the TWIN FROZR VI to achieve new levels of cool.
TORX 2.0 Fan design generates 22% more air pressure for supremely silent performance in the heat of battle.
Double Ball Bearings
Double Ball Bearings give the unique MSI TORX 2.0 Fans a strong and lasting core for years of smooth gaming. They also remain virtually silent while spinning under load, keeping your graphics card cool during intense and lengthy gaming sessions.
(MSI 1060 GAMING model does not have Double Ball Bearings).
Premium Thermal Compound with Smooth Heat Pipes
Every detail counts when it comes to creating the ultimate thermal design, which is why TWIN FROZR VI uses a premium thermal compound to make sure it outlives the competition. Also include up to 8mm thick copper heat pipes to maximize heat transfer.
Each LED can be controlled individually by choosing any of the animation effects available in the MSI Gaming App, ranging from responding to your game sounds or music to steady light, breathing and flashing. Of course, you can also turn them off.
Advance Zero Frozr Technology
First introduced in 2008 by MSI, ZeroFrozr technology has made its mark and is now the industry standard among graphics cards. It eliminates fan noise by stopping the fans in low-load situations. This means you can focus on gaming without the noise of spinning fans.

Top customer reviews
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
If you’re looking for rock solid HD and 1440p (2K) performance, this card will deliver. (It also reportedly benchmarks respectably in 4K also, but my monitor is only 1440p, so I can’t comment there.) If you’re interested, I have basic benchmarks/technical stats at the bottom.
As some folks have mentioned, the card does tend to run hot out of the box and can thermal throttle at the DEFAULT settings, even with a well-ventilated case. Ive seen some criticism of the radiator design/fans allegedly not being sufficient for the card. A lot of this is based on confusion from the 1080Ti Armor edition reviews, which is a COMPLETELY different card (250TDP vs 180TDP – the 1080Ti draws more power, and therefore generates more heat). This same cooler was also used with the GTX 980Ti which does have a similar power/thermal footprint to the 1080Ti, so theoretically, criticism here may be overblown. All things considered, the GTX 1080 inherently runs cooler, so this cooler should technically be "overkill." In my experience, this cooling setup actually does a good job of with this GTX 1080 card and even offers overclocking headroom to spare if you’re into that kind of thing.
Some recommendations to get the most out of this card:
1. Double-check your case fan placement. I have two 140MM intake fans on the front, one 140MM exhaust on the back, and two 140MM exhaust fans on the top. Originally, I had the two top fans set to intake. I assumed that getting positive pressure in my case would promote pushing air past the video card, out of the case. However, I got a good 5 degrees C temp decrease by changing the top fans to exhaust instead. Heat rises? Who would have thunk.
2. I highly recommend downloading the MSI Afterburner utility from MSI’s website even if you don’t intend on overclocking. Why? My main gripe with this card comes down to the default fan curve. Out of the box, this card idles the fan at 50 degrees C or lower, and DOESN’T RUN THE FANS AT FULL POWER UNTIL THE CARD HITS 90 DEGREES C. GTX 1080 cards are set to thermal throttle at 83 degrees or higher... See where I’m going with this? If you set a more aggressive fan curve you can completely eliminate the boost clock throttling issues (I’ve got my fans set to 50% @ 50 degrees, 90% at 70, and 100% at 80). The fans run quiet and have hydrodynamic bearings, so running them at full load should not decrease the lifespan significantly. They are also very quiet under full load, so I’m genuinely perplexed why MSI was so conservative with their out-of-the-box tuning here.
Another minor nitpick is the lack of a back plate - but that's COMPLETELY cosmetic. Backplates do not provide any thermal benefits, they are 100% for show. Card sag is an urban legend made up to sell you hunks of aluminum. It also lacks bells and whistles like RGB lighting or fan headers, but that's a reasonable compromise for the price point. If you're buying this card, you're buying it for the performance. The black and white aesthetic is minimalist and looks pretty darn classy. It's not flashy, but you're planning to be looking at the screen, not at your chassis, right?

The only thing I have to nitpick so far is the stock fan settings. The fans are off until 60C* and the RPM shoots up to 1100 immediately, which was a little silly to me. So after messing around with the fan speed curve in Afterburner everything seems to be a lot better now. Especially when the temp would settle around 58-62C* and the fan would keep turning off and on.
Just upgraded from an MSI 760 ITX OC, and this couldn't make me any more happier.
Computer total power use with GTX 770, at idle -- 113W
Computer total power use with GTX 770, with live camera viewer -- 171W
Computer total power use with GTX 1080, at idle -- 110W
Computer total power use with GTX 1080, with live camera viewer -- 158W
So when I have the live camera viewer open showing the 9 video tiles, the GTX 1080 uses about 13W less.
I'm sure the difference would be even more dramatic with a cutting edge game, but this gives an idea how this video card is more power efficient for all kinds of uses besides gaming.
Nvidia is leading the major breakthroughs in artificial intelligence / deep learning as well. Their next chip, Volta, has 640 Tensor Cores that are specifically designed to optimize deep learning. I can't wait til the security system software takes advantage of Volta features.
Not much else to say but if you see this on a sale, or dont wanna shell extra cash for the fancier cards, this works fine. I would recommend this and hope it lasts me a couple years, then I will be getting another MSI Nvidia/AMD.
