The Card

Pulling the video card out of the box there's nothing all that different to it compared to other similar MSI products. We've seen the Twin Frozr IV cooler for a while now and looking above you can really only see the cooler and a bit of the PCB across the bottom.

 

Of course the dual fan cooler is the highlight and you can see the massive heatsink that sits behind the fans along with a number of heatpipes coming out the bottom to help keep the GTX 670 core as cool as possible.

Moving around a little bit we've got two 6-pin PCIe power connectors at the back while closer to the front we've got two SLI connectors which give us the ability to run up to three of these video cards in SLI.

Checking out the I/O department you can see we've got two Dual-Link DVI connectors - one in the form of DVI-D and the other DVI-I. Along with that we've got a HDMI port and a full sized DisplayPort connector.

 

 

Specifications

 

As we mentioned earlier we have intensions to overclock the MSI GTX 670 Power Edition ourselves, but out of the box, we've already got an overclock that sees the core come in at 1020MHz, which is a nice increase on the stock 915MHz clock. With Boost, we see the clock move from 980MHz to a fairly impressive 1098MHz. As for the 2GB of GDDR5, that hasn't changed coming in at 6008MHz QDR.

Looking above, though, you can see we've pushed the core higher again. We've got 1090MHz here which with boost bumps it up to 1168MHz while the memory has been pushed up to 6584MHz QDR.

 

This is a nice increase over the reference numbers and we should see some excellent performance.
