Palit has opted for a dual fan setup over the single fan setup that we saw on the reference GTX 650 Ti Boost. Behind you can see the heatsink that takes up most of the card, and a pair of heat pipes across the bottom, which helps pull hot air away from the core. We're hoping this cooler results in quieter and cooler operation than the reference cooler, which we felt sat a little too high for a mid-range offering.
There is a single 6-pin PCIe power connector at the back, while staying across the top, but moving closer to the front, you can see a single SLI connector, which gives the ability to run two of these video cards together in SLI mode.
Finishing up with the connectivity side of things you can see we've got two Dual-Link DVI connectors on the right side - one DVI-D and the other DVI-I. To the bottom left you can see we've got a DisplayPort and HDMI connector while a vent in the top left half helps round off the I/O department.
As we mentioned on the last page when covering the front of the box we're dealing with an OC variant of the GTX 650 Ti Boost here today. Out of the box a reference GTX 650 Ti Boost comes with a 980MHz core clock or 1033MHz core clock via Boost. As for the 2GB of GDDR5, that comes in at 6008MHz QDR.
The Palit OC version comes in at 1006MHz or 1072MHz via Boost. Palit has also chosen to slightly increase the memory clock to 6108MHz QDR. This overall isn't a huge overclock, and I'm not sure we'll see too much of a change from the default speeds, but we'll find out soon enough on the following pages.
