With more options to adjust, the maximum performance of R6870 can be totally unleashed! 8+1+1 Phase PWM Design R6870 Hawk uses 8+1+1 Phase PWM design which increases the maximum current value up to 120A. With extra 30A current output, overclocking power capability of R6870 Hawk will be largely improved! Military Class Components MSI graphics cards adopt the high quality components that meet the Military Class standard, ensuring the best stability, longest life span, and no buzz noise under full load. V-Check Points V-Check point is the overclocker's favorite. Use MultiMeter to read the exact GPU and Memory voltage value from the V-Check points directly. Dual PWM Fans Dual Ultra Quiet fans provide 50% better thermal efficiency and direct airflow to cool down GPU, memory, and power module at once. Multiple Heatpipes Multiple Heatpipes can transfer heat much faster to the fins under the dual PWM fans, and the fans dissipate heat directly from the fins. High-Density Heatsink Ultra high-density aluminum heatsink has large area for heat dissipation. Heat of GPU will be dissipated to each fin equally. Nickel-plated Copper base Large copper based coated with nickel provides the fastest heat dissipation and the bigger contact area with GPU. 1. Turn on the computer. 2.
