Cooling Tech: TWIN FROZR 7
There is a LOT going on under the hood of MSI's TWIN FROZR 7 cooler, so let's dive right in.
First up, MSI uses an insanely thick and great-performing heat sink under the RX 5700 GAMING X. This is why the dual fans don't need to do much work when the card is at idle, and not much more work when the card is at load.
Speaking of the fans, MSI's custom RX 5700 GAMING X and its TWIN FROZR 7 cooler use TORX Fan 3.0 fans, with some new trims that improve the cooling experience.
If the card is under 60C (which it is until you start gaming) then the fans will not spin at all, something that MSI likes to call ZERO FROZR.
MSI uses a dedicated aluminum plate that covers the power delivery components on the card, providing ultimate cooling for the RX 5700 GAMING X.
Once again, MSI wants to provide the best cooling it can with TWIN FROZR 7.
The heat sink for the TWIN FROZR 7 on the RX 5700 GAMING X is tightly bolted onto the PCB, which provides better heat dissipation and strengthens the card itself.
Trust me, there's a LOT going on with this cooler -- with a big concentration put on the heat pipes underneath the cooler.
MSI uses a solid nickel-plated copper base plate on the TWIN FROZR 7-cooled RX 5700 GAMING X.
They also use premium thermal compound, too.
There's even some thermal padding on the GDDR6 and PWMs.
