Naadir, Tech Savvy Genius Handsome

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Its an awesome graphics card and plays CURRENT games at max, runs quiet, Will smash 1080 resolutions looks better than any other gtx980, especially in SLI. Runs multiple monitors with a breeze. Easy to install, low power consumption. If you are a casual gamer maybe switch on mortal kombat X after work for an hour this card is more than enough for your needs.
Bad points:
Switching from AMD eyefinity I found the Nvidia surround to be more troublesome in terms of set up. I ended up using them as extended desktops.
Temperature peaks around 70 degrees when pushed to max, stock cooler, stock clock. The air in the desktop just feels alot warmer now. Don't expect photorealistic graphics from this card even in SLI, but where a few years away from that anyway. I thought perhaps this card would be able to handle that but after running firestrikeX benchmark the frame rate is around 20 to 30. as of 2016 I wouldn't say this card is for future proofing 4k (multiple) resolutions. But this is a very high standard and their are £1000s graphics card made for that purpose.

Kurtis, Leeds Dayz FPS = 60

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Plays Dayz at 60fps.... Not that it's a standard but still.
Bad points:
Be aware this card has passive cooling till it hits 60.c they don't tell you the fans don't spin till its at least that hot. It will not always get to 60.c even under strain as the passive cooling is that good

Manufacturer's Description

With every new generation of GPUs comes more performance. With every new generation of MSI Twin Frozr, we give you less noise and heat! We’ve listened to all your requests and the new Twin Frozr V is smaller, features stronger fans, generates less noise, keeps your graphics card and its components cooler and matches perfectly with your MSI GAMING motherboard including some funky LED lighting. We’ve spent 18 months on the development of the Twin Frozr V, including field testing in gaming cafés to ensure the cards have the quality and stability to give you the FPS you need!

SuperSU Architecture is the best cooling solution for graphics cards. The GPU is cooled by a massive nickel-plated copper base plate connected to Super Pipes (8mm heat pipes) on the MSI GAMING series graphics card. Additionally, the new heat pipe layout increases efficiency by reducing the length of unused heat pipe and a special SU-form design.

MSI’s Twin Frozr V Thermal Designs are equipped with ZeroFrozr technology which was first introduced by MSI back in 2008. ZeroFrozr technology eliminates fan noise in low-load situations by stopping the fans when they are not needed. Compared to other graphics cards, there is no continuous hum of airflow to tell you there’s a powerful graphics card in your gaming rig. This means you can focus on gaming without the distraction of other sounds coming from your PC.
