LIGHTNING & Twin Frozr
The perfect marriage
of the best possible
GPU performance and
a Thermal Design to
keep everything cool
and silent. Leading is
one thing, staying
ahead is something
else.
"MSI’s GTX 770 Lightning not only boasts the lowest fan speed, but
achieves the seemingly impossible by simultaneously offering the lowest
noise level and the lowest GPU temperature."
Even if you're the best, try harder

Form-in-one heat sink
Front heat sink dissipates
heat from Memory and
VRM modules.
Rear heat sink dissipates
heat generated by PWM and
protects the PCB.
Maximum Tension, Minimal Bending
8 Heat sink mounting
points
With 8 screws connecting the heat sinks, the GTX 780
LIGHTNING is ensured of maximum PCB rigidity and heat
dissipation and ruggedness for extreme overclocking.
Airflow Control Technology
The Aluminium fin grid array of the Thermal Design features
special grooves that prevent Thermodynamic "dead air"
situations. This maximizes the use of airflow and efficiency of
the available cooling surface and enhances heat pipe
performance because of the directed airflow
Propeller Blade Technology

MSI Propeller Blade fans have 20% more airflow and
disperse the cooling air over a larger area providing the
heat sink surface with more cool air

ATX power to
Motherboard
Both GPU and Memory are
powered through the PCI
Express Graphics power
connectors. This eliminates
noise or power ripple on the
Graphics card's memory when
overclocking and reduces
interference and lowers stress
on the Motherboards power
delivery circuitry.

Enhanced Power Design
Increased
feedback
precision
By multiplexing the signal from the PWM
and receiving two sets of feedback, a more
stable environment can be created as more
feedback means a better response.
Higher performance through stability

Stable current
Through the optimized design, voltages fluctuate less under
load leading to higher stability.
