You can see that MSI has opted for quite a large fan. Normally we see most companies opt for an 80mm fan, but looking above, you can see we're dealing with something a little larger here. In this case, MSI has gone down the path of a larger 100mm fan. This means that the fan can spin slower and push more air, which in turn means that it operates cooler, and with less noise. Along with the fan, though, you can see the large heatsink at the back and a pair of copper heat pipes.
We've got a standard setup with a single 6-pin PCIe power connector located at the top towards the back. Staying across the top and moving closer to the front, you can see we've got a single CrossFire connector that allows us to run up to two of these video cards together.
When it comes to connectivity, we've got the standard setup which means two Dual-Link DVI ports are included with one being DVI-D and the other DVI-I. Alongside those we've also got a HDMI port and DisplayPort to round things off.
Like every other HD 7790 we've looked at in the past, the MSI offering comes overclocked out of the box. Looking below you can see out of the box the core comes in at 1050MHz, while the 1GB of GDDR5 carries a 6000MHz QDR memory clock.
Looking above, though, you can see with the help of overclocking, we managed to push the core up to 1250MHz, while the 1GB of GDDR5 came in at 6500MHz QDR. This is a nice overclock and should yield some decent performance when we start testing it over the next pages.
