Supreme Thermal Design

MSI’s reputation in thermal design is well known to be excellent. The evolved TriFrozr design on the GTX 980Ti Lightning features three 90mm Torx Fans that combine the advantages of both traditional fan blade and dispersion fan blade, generating huge amounts of airflow while remaining quite silent. Three 8mm SuperPipes transfer heat much faster to the fins, enabling up to a whopping 700W of heat dissipation.

Twin BIOS and Enhanced Power Design
Extreme overclockers can use the special LN2 BIOS on the card to reach for overclocking records without special hardware modifications. By removing restrictions, the full potential of the graphics card is unlocked. The enhanced power design contains more power phases than other models to ensure plenty of power is available, with 12 phases for GPU and 3 phases for Memory on a custom designed 10 layers PCB.
