Moving on to the card itself, the design is nothing to dis-similar from what we have seen from MSI before, this time with the stripe across the top of the card in blue rather than yellow as we do find on some other models and MSI products. We can see looking a little lower that the card hosts a number of large heat pipes on the underside to keep the GPU core cool under the collar.

Looking a little closer at the fans, as noted before, these fans have a little party piece to show off. When the system is powered up, the fans run in reverse for thirty seconds to blow off any dust that may have built up and to keep the performance of the cooler in as top condition as possible.

Over on the leading edge of the card we find two 6-pin power connectors to feed power to the card.

Further down the card we find two SLI bridges, allowing for up to three way configurations with other GTX 670s of similar specification.

Finally moving round to the I/O we find a fairly standard NVIDIA output array with two DVI (one DVI-D and one DVI-I), a single HDMI and a full sized DisplayPort. To the top left we find a small grill for heat ventilation out of the card.

Reference GTX 670’s come with a clock speed of 915MHz, boosting to 980MHz and a memory clock speed of 1502MHz like the GTX 660Ti, but as always, this is never enough for the vendors and MSI have given the 670 the overclock treatment for their Power Edition card, raising the core clock speed up to 1020MHz with a consequent boost speed of 1098MHz. In a similar fashion to a number of NVIDIA based cards that we have seen recently, we find that MSI have left the memory clock speed at reference levels, noting that there is an adequate enough performance gain to be had from raising the core clock on its own.
