MSI GTX 1080 Gaming X 8G Review

The MSI GTX 1080 Gaming X 8G video card is on the test bench at Overclockers Club today. What are the benefits of buying a GTX 1080 from a company like MSI? That signature red and black Twin Frozr VI cooler is definitely one.

Using large Torx 2.0 fans with dispersion blade technology on the ball bearing fans, there is an increase in airflow of 22% over traditional fan blade designs. Couple that with the large heat sink with 6mm and 8mm direct contact heat pipes and you get an excellent cooling design that keeps temperatures in check, even under a heavy 3D load. Both the GTX 1080 Gaming X 8G and GTX 1070 Gaming X 8G showed significant cooling performance gains over the Founders Edition cooling solution, with much less noise. There is no doubt that MSI's Twin Frozr VI technology is a step forward in cooling performance that shows tangible results.
