MSI has had great success with its video cards over the past year or so with its big efforts on producing parts with very good cooling and also the best components you can mount onto their PCB. The new N480GTX Lightning seems like no exception. It comes installed with a massive Twin Frozr III cooler with two large fans that look to be able to take care of cooling rather well. Of course during this event, the cooler was striped and replaced with LN2 heatsink pots for well below sub-zero temperatures.

The winning team from Sweden consisting of Elmor and ME4ME managed to break 1400MHz on the GPU core with this very video card. Clearly overclocking potential is there. Other features include gold plated I/O connectors - you get two dual-link DVI, one HDMI and one DisplayPort connector.

Shane Baxtor will no doubt have a sample coming very soon to put through its paces. Stay tuned for that review. For now check out the pictures we snapped of the new video below in the gallery.
