Up Close - MSI Gaming
As opposed to the ASUS idea of keeping the small PCB and giving it a shrunken, but still full-size quality, cooler, MSI have gone down a different path. Taking the GTX960 PCB and their full Gaming cooler, this is the perfect choice for those of you who desire a card which replicates a higher model. We're big fans of the Gaming cooler here at OC3D and it suits this card well too. The red slashes in particular are both eye-catching and match the MSI motherboard range, if brand loyalty is your thing.
Perhaps the only element that might give away the fact this isn't a higher model in the MSI Gaming range is the single heatpipe and space behind the IO plate. If you compare the GTX950 Gaming (on the right and at the bottom of the bottom two photographs) to the MSI GTX960 Gaming, the differences are slight.
