With beefy Cyclone cooler  

In order to keep the green camp happy today, MSI has rolled out two own versions of the new GF106 based GTS 450 cards. Both cards are pretty much the same as both feature the MSI Cyclone cooler, same specs (except for the clocks) and both boast MSI's Over Voltage feature.

As noted, both the N450GTS Cyclone 1GD5 and the N450GTS Cyclone 1GD5/OC feature 192 CUDA cores, 1GB of GDDR5 memory paired up with a 128-bit memory interface, DirectX 11 support, two DVI and one mini-HDMI output and MSI's own Cyclone cooler. The difference are the actual clocks of the cards as the first one works at reference 783MHz for the GPU, 1566MHz for those CUDA cores and 3608MHz for 1GB of GDDR5 memory, while the OC version has been factory overclocked to work at 850MHz for the GPU, 1700MHz for CUDA cores and 4000MHz for 1GB of GDDR5 memory.

According to MSI, the Cyclone Thermal Design, or simply, Cyclone cooler, keeps the GPU at 17C lower temperature when compared to the reference cooler. The Cyclone cooler features 90mm PWM fan and nickel-plated copper base paired up with two heatpipes.

Both cards should appear in retail pretty soon.
