The card will be equipped with MSI’s Cyclone cooler which consist of Aluminium fins in a round Heatsink with a fan placed in the middle to cool the card. The card is based on Nvidia’s GF 104 Architecture and due to the cooler will run cooler than the reference design. The clocks of the card will be 725MHz for the GPU, 1450MHz for shaders and 3600MHz for 768MB of GDDR5 memory paired up with a 192-bit memory interface and due to better cooling there’s room for even more Overclocking.
