If ever a card demonstrated the versatility of the Twin Frozr cooler, it's the GTX680. Considering we first saw this many models ago, the fact it's still capable of being utilised on the very latest high-end GPUs is a testament to the excellent design.

The Twin Frozr is one of the more attractive coolers around, and those giant heatpipes make us smile in anticipation. It's nice to see a dark PCB as well after the gaudy blue on the Gigabyte.

MSI have also kept the 6+6 stacked PCIe power arrangement we saw on the reference nVidia card.

Of course heatpipes mean nothing if you haven't got decent fans to help move the air around, and the Twin Frozr 3 has a pair of 80mm PWM fans keeping it all cool.

At the business end things remain standard with a couple of DVIs, a DisplayPort and an HDMI.

Asus is starting to do better than MSI with the DCII especially for the Nvidia 6xx series, TFIII is still a one of the best coolers though.Quote

That is a brilliant cooler, amazing temps.

I think giving it an 8/10 for price is high. I mean, £480? When both OC'd it looses in the toughest games around (BF3 and Metro) to the 7950...Quote

Agreed. If it was me i'd have knocked the price score down a bit. Still a great card and the cooler is incredible, but its expensive nonetheless for the performance it delivered in testsQuote
