With the package out of the way it's time to check out the card. Diving inside, it doesn't come as any real surprise that the card follows the reference design. There really isn't a whole lot to look at since the black cooler covers the card completely from left to right and back to front.
Of course BFG Tech have jazzed it up a bit by adding their own sticker to the front; we can clearly see who makes the card, the model and on the fan we can see that the particular card is the OCX one.
Following the reference design means there isn't anything out of the ordinary when it comes to looking at the card. Towards the back of the card up the top we have two 6-pin PCI Express power connectors and closer to the front we have two SLI connectors under a cover that lets you plug up to three of these cards together.
Finally we finish up looking at the I/O side of things which gives us two Dual-Link DVI connectors and a single TV-Out port.
As we've already mentioned a few times, the card comes overclocked out of the box. BFG have increased the core from the stock 576MHz to 655MHz, the shader clock from 1242MHz to 1404MHz and the 896MB of GDDR3 memory going from 1998MHz to 2250MHz.
