Overclocking

The major benefit with the MSI Twin Frozr II cooling solution is how effective it is at keeping everything nice and cool. This has the obvious side-effect of allowing us to push everything that bit further without thermal limits become problematic.

Whilst the reference card stopped at 850 MHz the MSI could be pushed all the way up to 895 MHz before it cried enough.

The secondary benefit to the Twin Frozr II is that besides its capability to keep the card cool it's how quietly it does this.
