The MSI-exclusive Propeller Blade technology found on the latest Twin Frozr III thermal solution features air channels on the edge of the blades to improve total airflow by up to 20%. The dual 80mm PWM-controlled fans, heat pipes, large nickel-plated copper base and high fin density all serve to rapidly dissipate heat from the GPU. Under  full load, the R6950 Twin Frozr III Power Edition's GPU runs 11?C cooler than the reference AMD card, and noise level is lowered by 13.9 dB. The large improvements shown underlines the cooling efficiency of the Twin Frozr III.
 
To cater to the needs of various user groups, MSI developed the exclusive P/S Switch function for controlling the speed of the fans. The Performance Mode provides optimal cooling performance, where low GPU temperature is a priority. On the other hand, the Silent Mode can be used while watching movies or even during gaming when fan noise is required to be as low as possible.
