TRI-FROZR THERMAL DESIGN Using three of the award-winning TORX 2.0 Fans with Double Ball Bearings, the new LIGHTNING is once again the pinnacle of air cooling.
TORX 2.0 FAN TEAMWORK FOR GREATER STRENGTH The exclusive MSI TORX 2.0 Fan technology uses the power of teamwork to allow the TRI-FROZR Thermal Design to achieve new levels of cool. TORX 2.0 Fan design generates 22% more air fan pressure for supremely silent performance in the heat of battle.
DOUBLE BALL BEARINGS Double Ball Bearings give the unique MSI TORX 2.0 Fans a strong and lasting core for years of smooth gaming. They also remain virtually silent while spinning under load, keeping your graphics card cool during intense and lengthy gaming sessions.
AIRFLOW CONTROL Using advanced aerodynamics, Airflow Control Technology directs more air directly onto the heat pipes. The special deflectors on the heat sink enlarge the surface area, which means lower temperatures and better gaming.
CLOSE QUARTERS HEAT PIPE COOLING Pipe down with heat pipes infused into the Close Quarters Heatsink and Backplate for greatly improved thermal performance.
ACTIVE BACKPLATE COOLING A thick heatpipe connects to the back of the PCB and runs almost the entire length of the backplate for additional heat dissipation.
SUPERPIPE & NICKEL PLATED COPPER BASE The massive heatsink with countless fins is connected through a number of 8MM thick Super Pipes with a Nickel Plated Copper Base at the heart of the thermal design.
MEMORY & MOSFET HEATSINK Massive metal memory & MOSFET heatsink covers PCB from front to back. Additional Pins & Fins on the sink help keep MOSFETs cool.
DESIGNED FOR OVERCLOCKING Built from scratch and designed to deliver the highest stability when overclocking, the MSI Lightning PCBs are the envy of the industry. This generation uses 14 of the industries’ highest rated DrMOS power phases as part of new groundbreaking Enhanced Power Design, delivering plenty of punch for stable extreme overclocking. Incredibly well designed, it doesn't require any external modifications to reach world-record breaking performance.
PURE DIGITAL PWM CONTROL Pure Digital PWM Control enables accurate control and monitoring of power delivery to specific key components. Fine-tune each area to find for maximum performance and stability during overclocking sessions.
MULITIPLE TEMP MONITOR Monitor temperature of GPU/Memory/VRM through Afterburner, separate thermometer or probes are unnecessary
EXTREME OVERCLOCKING TOOLS The Hardware Monitor shows you critical hardware information in real-time; temperature, usage, clock speed, and voltage
MILITARY CLASS 4 COMPONENTS Military Class 4 is the next step in high quality components. The Hi-c CAP, Super Ferrite Choke and Dark CAP will make sure that your PC runs more stable under extreme OVERCLOCKING conditions.
LN2 MODE SWITCH The core ideology of Lightning is the ability to break world records, easily. With a single BIOS switch, your Lightning graphics card is ready for extreme performance, enabling you to unlock the limits of power, current and thermal. This simply means you can extract maximum performance out of your card without the risk of damaging it through soldering or other hard-mods.
FOR THE GAMERS Lightning is built for extreme overclocking, however it’s perfectly suited for gaming as well. For the lucky few who are going to game with LIGHTNING, we’ve created a special edition of our MSI Gaming App which will detect your LIGHTNING graphics card. The OC mode will turn into Lightning Mode and by clicking it, you will gain an instant performance boost. That way you still get the best out of your LIGHTNING card while gaming.
