The Packaging

 

MSI has such a great box with its VGA cards right now, with some awesome dragon artwork splashed on the front of a red and black theme.

Starting with the front of the box, we have the aforementioned dragon on the front of the box. Up the top, we see that MSI is partnered up with eSports with Fnatic recommending MSI products. Up in the top right, we see this card is part of MSI's Gaming Series of products.

On the back, we have a full rundown of what to expect with the MSI GTX 980 Gaming 4G LE.

The card comes in another box with some great padding to protect it.

 

 

Detailed Look

 

The MSI GeForce GTX 980 Gaming 4G LE is one of the better-looking GTX 980s on the market, especially with its sexy yet great performing Twin Frozr V cooler.

Looking directly at the front of the GTX 980 Gaming 4G LE, we see the Twin Frozr V cooler and its red and black theme.

There's not much happening on the back, but we do see that MSI opted out of using the backplate that NVIDIA uses on the reference GTX 980.

MSI has stuck with the display output configuration of NVIDIA's reference design, with three DisplayPort 1.2 outputs, one dual-link DVI and one HDMI 2.0 output.

You'll need dual 8-pin PCIe power connectors to give the MSI GTX 980 Gaming 4G LE enough juice to run.

Here we have the two SLI connectors, which allow for 4-way SLI on the MSI GeForce GTX 980 Gaming 4G LE for some serious, serious power.
