OC3D Review: MSI 9600gt Hybrid Freezer

'Unlike most after market coolers which are made by Zalman or Thermaltake, MSI have decided to make their own. We find out if it really is cool or just a load of hot air.'



Read the full review here.

£145....what?!?! You could get two stock 9600GTs for that money and sli them. Nice review guys but shame about the result.

At least you were honest about it, nice to see that you don't just give reccomending reviews.

Nice review, indeed a shame about the card itself. Just an adjusting fan would be nice, 0% at <50*C and then slowly revving up instead of just kicking in with 100% at 85*C.

yeah, that's what I would much rather see, so that you can still have passive cooling when you aren't running anything demanding.

Good review, decent card, strange release for the price comparison just with it's own counterparts.

Teah Saphires 1024Mb HD4870 with fancy cooler is £165 at some places, or save £20 and get this... wonder what one people will pick

I saw this and just thought it was a really old review somehow on the front page, sadly not the case, I doubt this will shift many boxes

Big lol the price , considering that soon you will get OcUK Value GeForce GTX 260 for £156(if you dont belive check link below) , this card is a big joke.
