MSI Unveils the N580GTX HydroGen's All Copper Waterblock Design
24°C Cooler than the Reference Version and
Now Runs On a Totally Silent Single-Core Graphics Card
(Taipei – Taiwan) MSI, the leading international motherboard and graphics card maker, unveiled today the all new N580GTX HydroGen equipped with MSI's proprietary HydroGen all copper waterblock and NVIDIA Geforce GTX 580's top of the line graphics core. The HydroGen waterblock is MSI's industry-leading graphics card cooling solution featuring All-Copper construction and Micro-Channel technology for faster water flow and enhanced GPU cooling. Its HydroGen technology reduces operating temperatures by up to 24°C compared to the reference design, and is completely silent! When used along with the Afterburner overclocking software developed by MSI, the GPU voltage can be increased to boost overclocking potential. Real-time monitoring for core temperature and memory usage is also supported to keep players in control of their card's running condition. Solid capacitors are used exclusively on the N580GTX Hydrogen, significantly increasing service life and stability as well.
MSI HydroGen for Extreme Silent Water Cooling
The MSI N580GTX HydroGen water-cooled graphics card is equipped with an All-Copper large surface area waterblock covering both the GPU and memory components. The design offers a more effective solution to the problem of cooling down high-end graphics card than conventional waterblocks, which only cover the GPU. The waterblock also features MSI's unique Micro-Channel technology that places microscopic water channels just 0.45mm wide throughout the GPU area. The micro-channels speed up water flow and enhance GPU heat dissipation. The result is an operating temperature which is 24°C lower than that of the reference design— and not to brag, but it is completely silent during operation! To talk it up even more, its single-slot design lets players set up SLI multi-graphics card systems, and its reinforced reverse side prevents the weight of the waterblock from bending the PCB. Such an innovative and effective cooling performance makes the MSI Hydrogen without a doubt the most advanced, optimum water-cooling solution.
Total Control with MSI Afterburner Overclocking Software
MSI's own Afterburner overclocking software offers automatic switching between 2D/3D frequencies according to the user's environment for better energy efficiency. Real-time monitoring of core/memory frequencies and voltage allows the user to easily keep tabs on the card's running condition. The N580GTX HydroGen also supports GPU voltage adjustment, and the Afterburner software provides a simple way of increasing the core voltage to boost the overclocking potential and let loose the card's full power.
All Solid Capacitors for Long Life and Stability
MSI has always been committed to providing consumers with the best quality components. The N580GTX HydroGen uses All Solid CAP to deliver over 10 years of service life even in the most demanding user environments. The long lifespan and extreme stability provides the consumer with the best, most user-friendly experience.
