BFG Tech GeForce 9600GT OC2 - The Card

In an already crowded market, BFG Tech sets all guns'a'blazin with its highest clocked OC2 edition of the 9600GT.

The Card

 

With the package out of the way, it's time to move onto the actual card itself. In normal BFG style we do have the reference cooler being used; we can of course see mention that it's BFG and is the OC2 overclocked model.

 

 

I've always been quite a fan of the stock cooler as it is single slot based, quiet and generally does a pretty good job at cooling. It seems that BFG Tech is happy enough with it to use it on their top OC model.

 

 

 

With the card of course following the reference design, doing a quick parameter sweep we don't see anything out of the ordinary. We have a single PCI Express connector located at the back of the card while we find a single SLI connector located at the top.

 

 

As you would expect, the I/O side of things is also standard with two Dual Link DVI connectors and a single TV Out.

 

Specifications

 

While it isn't the highest overclock we've seen to date, the BFG Tech OC2 does come with a very healthy 690MHz core which is up from 650MHz. The shader gets bumped from 1625MHz to 1750MHz and the 512MB of GDDR3 comes in at 1880MHz which is up from the stock 1800MHz.
