The one thing that always get's me on these MSI cooling product's as well as those from other manufacturers is the body of the cooling. Why do they leave it open, yes it has enhanced fans, which means it will cool the GPU/Memory/PCB better by blowing heat all over your case.
No question about it, a closed shroud with exhaust keeps your case cooler.

All the more reason not to slack off with your case's fans if you own a card that doesn't vent it's heat to the outside of the case. There are plenty of high air flow and low volume, case fans on the market these days. Investing in them to replace the regular fans in a case is worth the money and a smart idea.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
It is perhaps these fans breathe more air?
for example, Thing of it like an exhaust for a kitchen... if you have a really powerful fan, and the hole/pipe is only 4 inches thick... your going to create some serious overflow, thus stress on the motor.
put in a 6 inch hole... thing sucks more air that you wont smell mums ocean water fish being fried.
Same concept here i guess...I wonder how loud these turbines will be
Beats the old days of opening the case and setting a fan on the sideof the case. But my favorite was the drier vent hose run from the A/C duct to my case for cooling due to over clocking, my wife did not like this at all it only lasted one night. As so as she got up the next morning and came into the computer room it was taken down. But at least the house was cool. and I thought the computer room was mine, I guess I was wrong...........................

Two of my friends both have GTX 460's in their computers, one of them is an MSI brand with a frozr cooler, and the other is an Nvidia name brand card.
Neither of them have measured the exact temps, but both their cases have the same number of fans in term of quantity and size, both the cards are clocked at the same speed and they have near identical components and I can tell you that the air coming out of the case with the Nvidia stock card is at a warm temperature compared to the one with a frozr where the air is quite cool.
Not sure what thats saying considering theres alot of variables involved, but I think the twin frozr coolers make a difference in cooling and temperature
I think largely with the Frozr models that heatsink plays a big role. I was initially just whining because it primarily if not completely drops it inside the case, rather than containing it in a strict exhaust stream out of the case.
