Card Specifications

 

MSI has kept the 6GB of GDDR5 at stock clocks for the 'Gaming' and 'Silent' modes, but lets a little loose when it comes to the 'OC' mode. The stock RAM clock is 7000MHz, but when the 'OC' mode is enabled, this goes up to 7100MHz; a 100MHz overclock.

Cooling Setup

 

MSI has quite a bit going on with the GTX 980 Ti Gaming 6G when it comes to the cooling setup, so let's take a deeper look at what keeps that GM200 GPU nice and cool. MSI's Twin Frozr V technology is smaller, features stronger fans, makes much less noise, and keeps your video card cooler than ever before.

Here's a look at the beefy heat sink underneath the card, with the fans also in focus.

A closer look at the chunky heat pipe running to the end of the card, keeping the VRMs cool.

This is a shot from the end of the card, where we can see the VRMs being kept cool, as well as the fan cable being routed at the end of the card, to the bottom.
