With the MSI exclusive Cyclone Thermal Design
n450box.gifMSI, the world renowned graphics card and motherboard manufacturer, today officially launches the N450GTS Cyclone OC graphics card. It is equipped with an overclocked NVIDIA GeForce GTS450 GPU core and MSI’s exclusive Cyclone thermal design. The 9cm PWM fan featured on the Cyclone Thermal Design enhances airflow by up to 50% and reduces operating temperatures by 17°C and is 7% quieter when compared to the reference design.
Using MSI’s exclusive overclocking software Afterburner v2.0, users can, amongst other settings, adjust the voltage of the GPU enabling even better overclock results. In addition, all-solid capacitors on the card give a better stability and enhance the lifespan.
MSI’s Cyclone Unique Cooling Design
MSI’s N450GTS Cyclone OC graphics card features the special Cyclone thermal design. Its large 9cm PWM fan provides 50% more airflow compared to the reference thermal design. With dual heat pipes and a nickel-plated copper base, heat is rapidly and efficiently dissipated through the Cyclone heat sink. Compared to the reference design, MSI’s Cyclone is 7% quieter and able to achieve an overall temperature reduction of 17°C providing the GPU with a better operating environment.
MSI Exclusive: Afterburner v2.0 Overclocking Software
The N450GTS Cyclone OC graphics card is equipped with all-solid capacitor components and offers users a highly stable product with a long lifespan. When used in conjunction with MSI’s exclusive Afterburner overclocking software it allows adjustment of the GPU voltage to achieve even better performance. The advanced fan speed control function detects temperatures and maintains a stable operating environment under overclocked situations.
Additionally, you will be able to adjust the clock speeds of the GPU and Memory in real-time while monitoring your performance. The Kombustor stability testing tool gives you an excellent tool to test your systems stability.
Support for PhysX and 3D Vision Technology
The N450GTS Cyclone OC graphics card brings DirectX 11, PhysX and 3D Vision technology to the lowest price point. DirectX 11 and PhysX make games and graphics more realistic and detailed while 3D Vision technology enables the world of 3D entertainment.
