MSI Radeon HD 5770 Hawk amps up the cooling

The mid-range of the graphics card market poses an interesting segment for manufacturers since there’s a clear desire for some performance cooling that’ll let the overclockers push their cards to extremes.

The MSI Radeon HD 5770 Hawk sports a heatpiped cooler with a pair of fans that should keep temperatures in check. TechREACTION has the review:

The Twin Frozr II is a fantastic looking cooler. It has a crowd-pleasing look and great performance to top it off. We just wish more companies would put more effort into cooling their cards  instead of just throwing on the generic cooler. The dual PWM fans are a nice touch. Having two fans instead of the standard one will help to dissipate heat at a greater rate without comprising on noise levels. MSI does claim that the Twin Frozr II is s full 13 degrees Celcius cooler than the reference design, and as you will see next, this may be true under the right circumstances.

A great performer with some real tweaking potential.
