Chris, West Bromwich

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Simply rocks at what it does. It was a toss up between this and the nVidia 970.
Decided this should future proof better.

It runs quiet and cool and games are just a glory to play.
Bad points:
The size and PSU requirements.

It's one big card. I have an Antec 900 gamer case and it just fits in (cannot have any hdd in line with the card as it wont fit in).

PSU requirements. I've found it requires a good quality PSU. I had a Corsair CX750M PSU and it would switch the PC power off after a couple of hours of gaming. I changed it with an Antec True Power 650W and it's solid.

Luke, Bristol I hate coil whine:P

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Great for gaming and is perfect for recording YouTube videos with your GPU as the renderer. HAS 8GB RAM! That's a massive plus.
Bad points:
Loud cool whine on high loads, calmed down after about a week but still noticeable without headset on.

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Is a good card. But with pascal releasing and Polaris about to release, it's going to become another 290.
Bad points:
Succeeded by Pascal, Polaris and Vega and short return period.

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 lightning. 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.

Advanced Dispersion Blade design generates 19% more airflow without increasing drag for supreme silent performance.

MSI has fitted Twin Frozr coolers with the all new Airflow Control technology which guides more airflow directly onto the heat pipes by using special deflectors on the heat sink. In addition, this exclusive heat sink design increases heat sink surface area, greatly enhancing the dissipation efficiency.

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.

Featuring a premium LED illuminated MSI GAMING Dragon to lighten the mood. This brand new function allows you to choose from 5 unique modes to set the right ambience for your gaming moments with just one click.
