MSI 9600GT Hybrid Freezer
15 March 2009
Conclusion: We've got mixed feelings with the MSI review, and we feel a little unsure of who the cooler is aimed toward. At first we thought it was aimed at performance junkies looking for lower temperatures and big overclocks without the noise of a fan all the time. However, once we began to test for higher clocks, it was obvious this was not the case. Therefore the best use for the Hybrid cooler would be in Media Centre PC's and computers that are primarily for 2D applications.
Pros: + Kept the card cool once the fan kicked in, + Cooler looks fairly nice
Cons: Fan is noisy, High Price, Did we mention the high price?
Conclusion: Judged solely as a passive cooler, the MSI N9600GT Hybrid Freezer does a decent job, especially with a core temperature of around 70 degrees Celsius that placed it even lower than the excellent Gigabyte GV-NX96T512HP. However, unlike the Gigabyte, the other components like the memory chips were about as warm as the core, so you can expect temperatures of at least 60 degrees Celsius on this card when running intensive applications.
