Looking at the MSI card you can see we've got a big dual fan setup with a massive aluminum heatsink sitting behind the two fans. Taking a quick spin around the card you'll see a 6-pin PCIe power connector at the back while closer to the front we've got a single CrossFire connector.
The I/O side of things doesn't hold any surprises with a single Dual-Link DVI connector, full size HDMI port and two Mini DisplayPort connectors to round it off.
This annoys me a little bit with MSI and it's not the first time they've done it.
Looking below we can see that the default core comes in at 1020MHz while the 1GB of GDDR5 carries a 4500MHz QDR memory clock. While this is an overclock, it's a core overclock of just 20MHz while the memory is left at complete stock. Considering we've seen overclocks of 100MHz+, it would've been much nicer to see MSI go harder here.
We'll be moving past the stock clocks of the card here today and as you can see above we ended up bringing the core up to 1240MHz, while the 1GB of GDDR5 came in at a nice rounded 5200MHz QDR.
