Overview

Overclocked and ready to rock

The MSI GeForce GTX 970 Gaming 4G graphics card is built on a factory overclocked processing core which operates between 1051 to 1279 MHz. This boost in processing speed allows for more data throughput, minimizing bottlenecks and dropped frames during intense gaming sequences and graphics rendering. To keep things cool, even when overclocked, there’s the Twin Frozr V cooling system complete with two large, whisper-quiet fans.

Uber efficient

With NVIDIA's Maxwell architecture, graphics-intensive programs benefit from the parallel configuration which speeds up render times. It’s also energy efficient with a max power draw of 148 watts.

The sound of silence

MSI’s Twin Frozr V Thermal Designs are equipped with ZeroFrozr technology which eliminates fan noise in low-load situations by stopping the fans when they’re not needed.

3 gaming modes

MSI Gaming app lets you pick a mode based on your processing needs. Silent for less demanding tasks. Gaming for moderate overclock with a speed boost. And OC when you need the GPU running full speed.

Step up your game

The only thing better than gaming with one MSI GTX 900 series gaming graphics card is having two or more running at once using NVIDIA's Scalable Link Interface (SLI).

Play hard, stay cool

The Twin Frozr coolers are fitted with Airflow Control technology which guides more airflow directly onto the heat pipes by using special deflectors. That way everything stays cool as a cucumber.
