MSI working on HD 6870 Twin Frozr II card

MSI is reportedly working on its custom made AMD HD 6870 graphics card with their highly popular in-house cooling setup, the Twin Frozr 2. With the Twin Frozr 2 cooler on this Radeon chip the new card will be cooler and quitter compared to reference cooled card. It’s a great thing to have, if you plan to overclock your card and do not want to buy a 3rd party cooler and fix it yourself.

MSI has been using their Twin Frozr 2 cooler on wide variety of Nvidia and AMD cards. According to the report, the Twin Frozr II cooler should keep the HD 6870 GPU up to 19 °C cooler and 12.8 dB quieter than the reference cooler, which is a very remarkable achievement. This is achieved thanks to the 8mm heatpipes connected to a rather large aluminum heatsink that is cooled by two 90mm fans. There’s no mention of whether the card will be overclocked out of the box or not, but the card should be rather happy to overclock with the new cooler.
