MSI GTX670 OC Power Edition Review

Introduction and Technical Specifications

MSI GTX670 OC Power Edition Review  


Our first review of the GTX670 found us loving the amount of power that it had available, whilst feeling that a non-reference cooler would easily put it at the top of the 'must buy' pile.

As is so often the case one of the first to appear on our desks was the MSI offering, with the Twin Frozr cooler that we've enjoyed for many iterations now. Last time we saw a Twin Frozr IV cooler we felt that MSI were starting to just get left behind a little in the quietness and performance stakes, so it will be interesting to see how this GTX670 OC Power Edition fares.

Of course you couldn't have a Power Edition without a factory overclock, and the MSI has a 104MHz overclock out of the box.

Technical Specifications

Besides the overclock things are fairly standard, with no trick additions other than the cooler. Considering how good the GTX670 was in reference form, this should be more than enough to rock our socks.

I think you shoulda bumped the price score up a bit fella, it's cheaper than most non reference 670's for that kind of performance :P Nice reviewQuote

A good review, and one that I have been waiting for on here for a while now
May I ask, did you leave the fans on auto? - a lot of the owners of this card say that the Auto preset is pretty naff, and that setting up your own fan settings is better.
