"MSI has equipped the card with its Twin Frozer III heat pipe-based cooling solution that uses five large heat pipes attached to an equally large fin array. The fans used are MSI's own Propeller Blade Technology that drives 20% more airflow through the fin array to keep the components under the cover, as well as the GPU core, cool. The Twin Frozer III design accomplishes this impressively with the lowest load temperatures in the overclocked testing. The Propeller Blade fans are not silent when you spool them up to the 100% mark, but they are a significant step in the right direction when compared to the reference design cooling. At the other end of the spectrum, in the stock testing, the R6950 delivered load temperatures of 63 degrees Celsius. Not bad, you say? That's right, because this 63 degrees Celsius result is a full 21 degrees Celsius better than the reference solution, all without the noise letting you know the card is there."
Any major computer upgrade generally requires a full software reinstall too. No so if you heed the advice in the guide to Upgrading a Motherboard without Reinstalling. PCSTATS Tips
