Pulling the card out of the box; you see the same theme that was going on with the front of the package. We have the turbo like device again on the front with a purple and black colour scheme going on. We also have the brand and model on the front of the card and the XFX logo on the fan.
Like most 9800 GTX+ cards at the moment, the card uses the reference cooler which takes up every bit of the front and really not giving us a whole lot to look at.
Looking around the card, we see everything a standard 9800 GTX would have. Towards the back of the card we have two 6-pin PCI Express connectors whilst moving across the top gives us two SLI connectors, giving us the ability to have up to three cards in a Tri-SLI configuration.
As mentioned, the card is overclocked out of the box. Although, it's worth noting that only the core has been increased from the stock 738MHz to 765MHz. The shader and memory both remain at their stock clocks of 1836MHz and 2200MHz DDR respectively.
