A Closer Look


As mentioned the graphics card uses MSI’s Twin Frozr cooler which has three 6mm heat pipes, one 8mm heat pipe and a pair of 100mm fans.

The two fans are branded with MSI and Twin Frozr while an MSI Gaming badge/emblem sits proudly in the middle.

The large 8mm heat pipe carries heat into the far end of the dense internal aluminium heatsink. MSI equip a brown PCB and interestingly have half the memory chips on the front and half on the back.

Two SLI connectors provide up to 3 way SLI functionality as Nvidia drivers do not currently support 4 way SLI on the GTX 760 even though it is technically possible.

The card draws power from a 6 pin and an 8 pin, compared to a reference card which uses two 6 pins.

The card’s rear I/O has a full sized Display Port, two DVIs and a HDMI. Nvidia Surround is supported but this requires three displays capable of the same resolution. A fourth auxiliary display is supported.

Out of the box we have that 40MHz GPU core overclock while the memory stays at stock. The graphics card has 2GB of frame buffer over a 256 bit interface and is based on Kepler GK104.

    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?

    • 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.

        I guess you must just be very unlucky then…

        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.
