Heat is the most original element on earth. It's pure physics that more energy will generate more heat. Cooling is therefore a knotty task to tackle with. MSI exclusive Cooler Boost 3 technology creates dual thermal modules internally by allocating dedicated heat pipes for GPU and CPU. One click on the fan boost button, multiple heat pipes and dual fans actively and effectively push heat out of the system, making the cooling design of this model the highest level of its kind.

The Cooler Boost 3 dual cooling system is developed especially for the next generation extreme mobile processors. Besides making sure your system stays within thermal limits at all times during regular use, users can manually boost the cooling system by a simple key, located to the left side of the keyboard. This will maximize thermal exhaustion and ensure a chilly system even during those marathon gaming sessions. Regardless of how demanding the environment is, your notebook stays quiet and cool.

With components such as the Intel Core i7 Extreme CPUs and NVIDIA GTX 900M series graphics, the cooling is vital for performance, Cooler Boost 3 lowers CPU temperatures with ~8-10°C, and GPU temperatures ~4-5°C. With this new cooling solution, you will see not only lower temperatures than the competition can offer, but also lower total noise levels without the need for bulky coolers. The exclusive MSI "SHIFT" technology pushes system to the extreme while minimizing noise and temperature. Switch between three profiles "Sport," "Comfort," and "Green" to reach balance between system performance and comfortable user experience.

The NVIDIA Geforce GTX 970M Series brings extreme, next-generation graphics performance to serious gaming notebooks. As the first graphics solution to reach a score over 9,000 in 3DMark 11, the GeForce GTX 970M delivers extremely fast and fluid gameplay at the highest settings and resolutions in a lightweight and portable design.
