The MSI Gaming has two huge PWM fans as part of the Twin Frozr cooler, a nice change from some of the triple-slot or three fan designs. It keeps the card as compact as possible, whilst hopefully retaining good cooling performance. The Gaming Edition Dragon logo is front and centre, although the card is more black than red and black.

As well as the fans there are two heat-pipes, called SuperPipes by MSI, to help keep the Kepler GPU cool. There is also a metal plate to help disperse the heat from the GDDR5 and Hi-C CAPs.

Finally the business ends of the GTX780 Gaming are the same as on the rest of the GTX780s. Considering how overclocked this is it's nice to see that a 6 and 8 pin PCIe power connection is all that is required. Two DVIs, an HDMI and a DisplayPort provide the monitor connectivity.

It would be impossible not to recommend it as it's the best GTX780 around at the moment.
Performance-wise, this isn't the best 780 at the moment. The Classified scored 1891 points higher in FireStrike when overclocked on air. EVGA claims it was a retail card. However, it still might have been cherry-picked.Quote
