MSI N570GTX Twin Frozr III Tackles Temps with Propeller Blade Technology

MSI N570GTX Twin Frozr III Tackles Temps with Propeller Blade Technology

MSI sure does seem infatuated with its Twin Frozr III cooling solution, which has been appearing on a number of the board maker's graphics cards. That's not a bad thing, considering MSI claims big temp reductions due in part to the cooler's propeller blade technology. The newest card to get the Twin Frozr III makeover is the N570GTX Power Edition.

MSI claims its Twin Frozr III cooler provides 20 percent more airflow to the N570GTX, chilling the GPU by 18C over reference, and reducing fan noise by 7.7dB. Cooler and quieter? That's what we calling having your cake and eating it too.


In addition to improved cooling, the N570GTX Twin Frozr III Power Edition also boasts a 6+1 phase power supply design that offers 40 percent more power than the reference board. This, MSI says, results in greater stability. And of course the N570GTX sports handpicked Military Class components, including Tantalum Core solid state capacitors, SFC high-performance choke, and other odds and ends.

No word yet on price or availability.

Looks just like the 560ti that just came out. MSI's entire product line is looking really good these days.

I'm thinking about upgrading my GTX 470 to get ready for BF3 and this looks like a worthy candidate! Whatcha think guys?

Pretty impressive. Nice work MSI.

I have a MSI GTX-560Ti Frozr-II tech, and the temps in my case are not affected by it so far. I would buy the MSI GTX-570Ti if I didn't already have an ASUS GTX-570 in the other box. My cases do have really good airflow, and all of the CPU's heat is exhausted to the rear of the case in both of them.

heya Neil  don't those red Evercools you have feature the propeller tech a bit ?

I think they are referring to  a "batwing blade design brings extra 20% ~ 30% airflow for enhanced cooling performance."

so their just might be a obvious improvement to the airflow as we ll as quiet from the design on the vid cooling fans.

Yeah using the propeller technology gives a lot more active flow in the blades. I also agree with Drake that 560ti is going to be nice.

I was on the fence between MSI FT2/Asus DCII/Palit Sonic but i think this is card has it all (6+1 / compatibility with MSI AB / and no 3 slot) and with a familiar name brand with reliable customer service

Looks like MSI has a winner here , the Twin Frozr III is a proven design and yep propeller blades move more air and are quieter too 7.7 dB may not seem like much but actually it is  ...but what's getting my attention is the

"6+1 phase power supply design that offers 40 percent more power than the reference board"  , & will investigate the heatsink a bit more

apparently they may have a factory OC version as well &  going to have to wait a bit for price info.

Well done MSI Smile

It's nice that they're bringing their Twin Frozr III technology to other graphics cards now that they've perfected it. Seriously they should of ditched Twin Frozr II and just gone directly to III.

More airflow, quieter noise, frankly I'm excited to see what these coolers are going to do.

This card, like many others that have been released lately, have me scratching my head. The recipe calls for installing a bad-ass cooling solution with multiple fans. Then they install a minimal fan shroud that displays some sexy heat pipes (boosting the sales!), but ultimately they blow all of that heat into the case. That doesn't make sense to me. This increases the temperature of the other components and recirculates the heat into the video card over and over again. I would prefer to have a card with an external exhaust. Take a look at THIS review of an EVGA card with an external exhaust as an example. Since these cards use 2 PCI slots, the second slot should be full of functional exhaust louvers - but instead they are increasingly being used to display the company logo or to add another display port. Function over form, I say. In the case of video cards it might be a mistake to buy with your eyes.

 

It's not pretty, but I believe this example illustrates a good overall cooling solution:

@Super Dave: While I respectfully agree with what you're saying, I don't exactly share your views. Sure, cards like the one shown above may help to make a case cooler by exhausting the air out of the case, the hot air may decrease cooling performance subtly. There's also the factor of fan noise when overclocked; for most people, the card pictured may do fine but for the rest of us, the loud fan noise when overclocking may get to us (since those fans have to run at extremely high RPMs) I'm one of those overclockers and sure, additional heat in the case is bad but today's gaming cases are built with fans all around to keep the case cool, and hey; we can always install a fan on the side to keep the case cool when we're running these dual fan monstrosities.

Do you really believe that a single fan on an overclocked video card would be louder than two fans of the same size on another overclocked video card + an additional fan on the side of the case?

Well if it's a reference cooler then yeah, it'd be louder then two fans of the same or larger size (fans spinning at a considerably lower RPM btw.) Note that the smaller fan on the reference cooler has to work harder when overclocked to keep the card cool (with a custom fan profile of course.), the wirring sound when a fan spins at that high of an RPM can really get to someone. I know, I had to run my 4890 at 100% just to keep my temperatures at check.

I understand that two fans together may be louder then a stock fan at load but I feel like the two fans design (combined with a decent afterstock cooler) shows better overclock (and some noise potential) then stock.
