Stylise Your 1080 GPU With RGB LED
Through the MSI Gaming App each LED on the 1080 GAMING can be controlled individually and customised using the various animation effects. These animations range from responding to game or music sounds to a breathing effect - of course, they can always be turned off.

Advanced GPU Cooling Technologies
The GAMING X from MSI has various aspects to help keep this gaming GPU as cool as possible. Every detail of this intricate heat-sink plays an essential part in providing a cool and quiet gaming experience.

Airflow Control
This GTX 1080 utilises advanced aerodynamics, Airflow Control Technology directs more air directly onto the TWIN FROZR VI heat pipes. The special deflectors on the heat sink enlarge the surface area, creating lower temperatures and better gaming.

Smooth Heat Pipes
Embedded within the GAMING X 1080 GPU are copper heat-pipes running through the cards fins. These 8mm thick pipes have been made with a smooth square shape, this will maximize heat transfer from the surface of the copper base plate.

Solid Base-Plate
To temper the heat generated by a powerful GPU, MSI GAMING series graphics cards use a solid nickel-plated copper base plate. The base plate catches the heat from the GPU and transfers it to the heat pipes for dissipation - further increasing the cooling.

Advanced Torx 2.0 Fan
TORX fan technology works in teamwork with TWIN FROZR VI to achieve new levels of cooling. The fans design generates 22% more air pressure for supremely silent performance when gaming. The fans also feature double ball-bearings for a strong and lasting core for years of smooth gaming - also helps with noise elimination.

MSI GTX 1080 FROZR Cooling
MSI released this technology in 2008 and it has since become an industry standard among graphics cards. FROZR will eliminate fan noise by stopping the fans in low-load situations, meaning you can keep focus on your gaming, streaming or other media without the noise of spinning fans.

Military Class 4
A deciding factor in your graphics card’s performance is the quality of components thata re used. GAMING X 1080 makes use of only MIL-STD-810G certified components to ensure the highest quality possible. When stress tested under torturous circumstances these components have proven very durable.

Control Your Gaming X 1080
This app from MSI allows you to access single click performance profiles that can unlock extra potential for gaming, or keep your 1080 card silent during light sessions. It also features the EyeRest tab, giving you easy access to image quality improving technology. The LED control tab gives you full control over your MSI GAMING LED lights to set the mood.

Customise GTX 1080 From Your Mobile
The exclusive MSI Gaming App is now also available for Android so you can control your graphics card from your phone without having to switch to Windows - uninterrupted gaming from MSI.
