Introduction

Nvidia’s GTX 760 is turning out to be a bit of a hit with gamers as it is offering a sweet spot of high end performance and high end features for a price that is much better than the previous generation. The GTX 760 is essentially a GTX 670 in terms of performance and when you bring in overclocked versions like this GTX 760 Twin Frozr Gaming Series graphics card from MSI, you get even more performance. Yet the GTX 760 is substantially more affordable than the GTX 670 was – coming in at about $250 USD instead of the $345 USD the GTX 670 went for. Pairing up Nvidia’s most popular GTX 700 series GPU with MSI’s increasingly popular Gaming Series of products and we have with us what will essentially be the best selling MSI Gaming series graphics card – simply because it is the most affordable and best value.

The MSI GTX 760 Twin Frozr Gaming OC Edition comes overclocked out of the box by an additional 40MHz at 1020MHz base clock, up from the 980MHz default clocks. Memory is left at stock 6GHz speeds but we are told by MSI, and have seen from other reviews, that there is a tonne of overclocking potential on the memory MSI equip. The MSI GTX 760 we have here equips MSI’s Twin Frozr cooler which has three 6mm heat pipes, one 8mm heat pipe and a pair of 100mm fans. There is also a tonne of other advanced features like additional VRM cooling, Super Ferrite Chokes and up to 3 way SLI support.

Included with the retail package for this MSI graphics card is:

  • The Graphics Card
  • 6-pin to 8-pin PCI-Express adapter
  • Twin Molex to 6-pin power adapter
  • Driver installation CD
  • User guide
  • DVI adapter

    It’s a bit odd that both the msi gtx 760 and 770 gaming struggled to overclock on the core but we’re the best at VRAM overclocking. In other reviews of both cards I have seen them go much higher on the core so you must either be really unlucky or there is something odd going on at MSIs end with binning. Just out of interest are these samples sent direct from MSI or did you buy them from retail?

    • Ryan Martin says:

      Quite honestly i’m not really sure. We had no trouble with any other GTX 760s (Gainward Phantom, Gigabyte WindForce) they all overclocked well and as expected. These samples were sent direct from MSI so i’m not sure what’s going on. We tried multiple OC programs (afterburner, precision X, etc) and all returned similar results.

      • Matthew Humpherson says:

        I guess you must just be very unlucky then…

      • Matthew Humpherson says:

        I just got hold of a MSI GTX 770 Gaming edition card and it went to 1250 MHz core and 8000 MHz VRAM no problem and runs around 66 degrees in Arma 3 which is a very graphic intensive game so I guess it really must have been bad luck that you couldn’t overclock more.

    I’m also only able to OC the GPU 100 mhz. The memory, though, has a lot of headroom. Currently, using Afterburner, I’m at 1120mzh core-1185mhz boost for the GPU and 1752mhz memory as shown in GPU-Z. All other reviews’s I’ve seen are able to push the GPU much further, so it’s nice that this review matches my machine, punch for punch. I’m just opting to leave the memory OC a little lower for stability/longevity/low maintenance, etc.

    Thank you for the article

    I got mine core clock boost to 1215mhz and memory 1885mhz
