MSI overclock, watercool GTX 280 with HydroGen
MSI also tunes up the clock settings of the original fan cooling N280GTX series and makes MSI N280GTX-T2D1G Super OC the highest clocked GeForce? GTX 200 series in the world.
10C Lower than GeForce? GTX 200 fan thermal solution Via the massive contact surface increase brought by micro channel technology, MSI N280GTX OC HydroGen series successfully runs one of the highest core clock settings at 700MHz, but has 10? lower temperature level than normal fan cooling GeForce? GTX 200 series even at full workload.
Another amazing thing is that MSI achieves this with only 1-slot thick HydroGen micro channel water cooling tank. This makes a multiple graphics setup in a single system possible, even with all the water cooling accessories together.
17% higher than standard version of N280GTX series
With the highest core clock over-clocked, MSI N280GTX OC HydroGen enjoy a net 17% performance boost compared to standard GeForce? GTX 200 series. Even with the previous MSI over-clocked N280GTX-T2D1G-OC against the HydroGen, the latter ones still have a 7% lead in performance.
