MSI have taken the famous Twin Frozr II cooler, modified it and applied it on the nVidia GTX480. Can it finally tame the Fermi Furnace?

About time someone applied this kind of cooling to a 480. Fermi would have a much better name now if this was how it was released.

Really strange to see cool, quiet, and 480 in the same review .

I would be curious to see how the Frozr III compares to the Frozr II that MSI already has on a 480 gtx.

Good to see that someone finally tamed the beast of the 480. Sales for that sucker should go up.

Couple of questions for you

it looks like its a 2 slot card , can you confirm .

How is the cooling working , are the fans pulling in and venting out the back or is it dumping all the hot air into the case .

Presuming the above is good news , would this be much better or about the same as my current setup of 2*gtx280's in sli .

Thanx .

It does put most of the heat into the case, but with a decent case it will be way better than the 280's dude.
