Today we are taking a look at one of the latest MSI cards on the market! We got a sample of their N285GTX SuperPipe OC which has a twin fan cooler, and thicker heatpipes for better cooling. This card should clock a bit better than the others on the market with this new cooler and maybe also be a bit more silent although that remains to be seen. Lets have a closer look!
