Taking a look at the card, you can straight away see that the overall design isn't anything new to us. We've seen the Twin Frozr IV Advanced cooler a number of times, and you can see the black and red design with two oversized fans is the standard setup. We have a massive heat sink that sits behind the two fans and covers almost the entire card.

Taking a quick spin around the card, you can see that power comes in the form of two connectors. One is a 6-Pin PCIe; the other, an 8-Pin PCIe. Staying at the top of the card but moving closer to the front, you can see our two SLI connectors, something that is important for users wanting to run more than one of these cards.

Checking out the I/O panel, you can see we've got two Dual-Link DVI connectors. One is DVI-I, while the second is DVI-D. Alongside them, you can see we have two other video out connectors in the form of DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI 1.4a. This is a very standard I/O panel for this model.

 

 

Specifications

 

As we mentioned at the start, we're dealing with an OC version of the MSI GTX 780 6GB Twin Frozr Gaming. Looking below, you can see that MSI has bumped the core up to 954MHz from 863MHz. This means that the boost clock comes in at 1006MHz, up from the standard 900MHz. As for the massive 6GB of GDDR5, that's been left alone at 6008MHz QDR.

Like we said in the introduction, we will be overclocking the MSI GTX 780 6GB Twin Frozr Gaming OC today to see just what kind of performance we're able to get out of the model.

 

Starting off with the core, we managed to push that to 1050MHz, which was then pushed to a massive 1102MHz via the boost feature. As for that 6GB of GDDR5, we managed to push that up to a nice, round 6400Mhz QDR.
