Cooling Tech: TWIN FROZR 7

If there's something I'll never get sick of, it is MSI's attention to detail with its cooling technology. The new GeForce RTX 2060 GAMING Z features their latest TWIN FROZR 7 cooling technology which rolls out with a wave-curved heat sink for the ultimate in heat dissipation and noise reduction.

MSI is using 6mm copped-squared shape heat pipes, which transfer heat more efficiently than previous designs. We have the same MOSFET cooling as other GAMING Z and TWIN FROZR cards, which is important given the power components needing to stay cool.

We have the same ZERO FROZR technology as the higher-end GeForce RTX 2080 Ti LIGHTNING Z (my review here) where the fans won't spin unless the card reaches 60C.

Speaking of the fans, MSI has once again used TORX Fan 3.0 fans on the RTX 2060 GAMING Z with the two blade types on the card generating more concentrated airflow for improved cooling.

MSI has used a 5+2 phase PCB design and a single 8-pin PCIe power connector, which handles all of its stock and heavily overclocked performance.

There's also the great use of MSI's own RGB Mystic Light technology, something that really pops on the card and isn't overly used. You can customize until your hearts content through the RGB Mystic Light 3 beta.
