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.
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.
Dispersion Fan Blade has a steeper curved blade which accelerates the airflow, increasing its effectiveness.
Traditional Fan Blade pushes down a steady airflow to the massive heatsink below
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.
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
*Actual locations of temp monitors may vary from visual
EXTREME OVERCLOCKING TOOLS
The Hardware Monitor shows you critical hardware information in real-time; temperature, usage, clock speed, and voltage.
Through MSI's unique design you can apply voltages to not only the GPU and Memory, but also an auxiliary voltage that is relevant to your card's extreme performance.
V-Check points allow you to accurately measure the voltages of your graphics card as software will always show a small variance and this can be disastrous under wrong circumstances.
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.
DrMOS is the next-gen MOSFET which is used to deliver the power for the GPU. On the Lightning, we use the highest rated DrMOS available. The use of 60A DrMOS means that 16 power phases is more than enough for record-breaking performance. Because DrMOS is a 3-in-1 chip, it delivers much more power with less components needed.
A Hi-c CAP is a very small, but super-efficient capacitor. Besides ensuring enough spacing around a GPU socket to install
large coolers, it also allows for 93% energy efficiency. Thanks to Hi-c CAP`s MSI Lightning are the most energy efficient in the market.
SUPER FERRITE CHOKE
Super Ferrite Choke uses a Ferrite core that is Super-Permeable. This allows the Super Ferrite Choke to run at a 35 degree Celsius
lower temperature, have a 30% higher current capacity, a 20% improvement in power efficiency and better overclocking power stability.
With their aluminum core design, Dark CAP`s has been a staple in high-end design PCB designs and provides lower Equivalent
Series Resistance (ESR) as well as its over-10-year lifespan.
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.
MSI Afterburner is the world’s most recognized and widely used graphics card overclocking utility which gives you full control of your graphics cards. It also provides an incredibly detailed overview of your hardware and comes with some additional features such as customizing fan profiles, benchmarking and video recording.
