To make the Lightning Edition very overclock friendly, MSI has done some radical changes, the card has a custom designed dual slot cooler with dual fans with dense aluminium fin arrays, there are many other changes like a 17 phase VRM, voltage measurement points and dual Bios. As a result the card should be a good overclocker  with some serious voltage tweaking potential which should improve performance quite alot although we can’t say anything until the card is reviewed.
