The MSI card ran really, really cool, with maximum temperatures reaching around 72C. This is in comparison to the GTX 580 card or 480 cards that run at a maximum temperature of 88C. MSI claims temperature savings of up to 16C and this is what I’ve observed with this card. The card was also able to overclock over 100MHz over the reference card without breaking a sweat totally stable. This card carries a slight price premium over the $249.99 NVIDIA recommends, but you get an awesome cooling system for the graphics chip and good overclocking ability. If you are looking for an overclocked and cooler running NVIDIA video card than the average off the shelf product, the new MSI N470GTX Twin Frozr II, may be the card you have been searching for!
