TWIN FROZR 7 Keeps Things Cool

The big difference here with MSI's new GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER GAMING X is that it has the dual-fan TWIN FROZR 7 cooler, versus the triple-fan cooler on the GAMING X TRIO variant.

MSI's kick ass 7th-gen TWIN FROZR thermal design is a culmination of all of its work over the years, with Torx Fan 3.0, ZERO FROZR, a power cooling plate, and much more under the hood.

The latest version of MSI's iconic TORX fan is the fan of choice for the TWIN FROZR 7 cooler and new RTX 2070 SUPER GAMING X.

These two fans won't spin up until the card reaches 60C or more, as part of MSI's ZERO FROZR technology.

A super-chunky heat sink is used, with MSI mastering the art of aerodynamics (their words) with the Wave-Curved 2 fins allowing more airflow to pass over the heat sink smoother... resulting in less noise. A good thing for your late night, and hopefully quiet gaming sessions.

MSI tightly bolts its heat sink to the PCB, something that helps with both heat dissipation and strengthens the card.

MSI isn't messing around when it comes to copper heat pipes flowing all through the TWIN FROZR 7 cooler.

A large GPU baseplate it used, keeping the card as cool as possible.

MSI uses a "premium thermal compound" on its TWIN FROZR 7-cooled RTX 2070 SUPER GAMING X graphics card.

There's also some thermal pads on the card on its GDDR6 memory and PWMs for improved cooling.
