GAMING series

The new MSI AMD Radeon™ RX 6600 XT GAMING X graphics cards feature the iconic TWIN FROZR 8 thermal design. This iteration of MSI’s advanced dual fan design has been improved with TORX FAN 4.0, providing fan blade pairs bound together with an outer link to focus airflow into the TWIN FROZR 8 cooling system. The heatsink features advanced aero- and thermodynamic technologies for efficient heat dissipation that lowers core temperatures while maintaining high performance. Dazzling Mystic Light RGB infused into the side of the card is easily controllable and can be synchronized with other compatible LED-lit components via the newly released MSI Center software.

The MSI AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT GAMING X graphics card also features the following:
Torx Fan 4.0 - A new fan design sporting pairs of fan blades bound together with an outer link, forming a rim that focuses airflow into the updated TWIN FROZR 8 cooling system.
Core Pipes - Precision-machined heat pipes ensure maximum contact with the GPU and spread heat along the full length of the heatsink.
Metal Backplate - A matte-finish backplate reinforces the graphics card and also provides efficient passive cooling with the implementation of thermal pads.
