Introduction

Nvidia’s high performance GTX 580 graphics card has been a very impressive product, offering killer gaming performance to enthusiasts who crave speed and power. However, as we know, reference designs will only push things so far; temperatures and noise levels on the high side are typically the weak points in the stock designs. But custom card designs are just the thing to solve those issues, bringing better products for what are usually modest increases in pricing.

MSI is a company known for pushing the envelope on many of their product lineups, and graphics cards are no exception. Taking what is already an impressive product and pushing things further, MSI now has the GTX 580 Lightning Twin Frozr III, featuring improved power distribution, custom heatsink for lower temperatures, factory overclocked settings, and even voltage customizations for enthusiasts who want to extract the most out of their graphics card.

The MSI GTX 580 Lighting Twin Frozr III is a beast of a card, one of the biggest on the market in fact, measuring almost a foot in length. And MSI actually had to increase the size of the PCB to accommodate the new power design and a host of other goodies. The card certainly looks impressive on paper, but let’s see how it performs on the bench.

Established in 1988, MSI Microsystems Ltd. is well-known for manufacturing stable, excellent, and innovative graphics accelerators. As one of the top PC components manufacturers, MSI continues to provide top-to-bottom graphics cards with stable and excellent quality to the world.
