Components as follows:
an adapter DVI / D-Sub;
software CD ;
instructions.
The card is made in the already standard for MSI Gaming design : a large cooler with two fans , companies and dragon logo on them , as well as a black casing with red elements .


The fastest OC Mode mode corresponds exactly to the initial settings. Switch to Gaming Mode reduces the base core frequency to 1190 MHz Boost Clock 1253 MHz and the peak value at 1341 MHz. In Silent Mode the base value is reduced to the standard level of 1126, but above the Boost Clock - 1190 MHz and 1277 MHz peak. Silent Mode requires a more flexible and speed control algorithm fans with priority on silence. However, even in OC Mode card is so quiet, that there is no sense to sacrifice performance for minimum fan speed changes.

Considered MSI graphics card and perform as a standard version of the GeForce GTX 960. But there are some nuances. As noted above, in the Silent Mode at 1126 MHz Boost Clock value above the recommended 12 MHz. Accordingly, the peak value is compared Boost with reference also higher. The only question is how. For example, should also be mentioned Inno3D iChill GeForce GTX 960 2GB Ultra - This graphics accelerator between the base and the peak value difference 101 MHz. At MSI, this difference is 151 MHz. If Inno3D the algorithm closer to the reference, the standard video card should not be as high as 1230 MHz.

Ideally we need a real physical copy of Reference for the comparison. In the absence thereof, can dispense a further reduction of the base frequency . The only software does not allow to lower this value below 90 MHz with respect to the initial one. So I had to do 1126 MHz 1277 MHz . A final frequency to bring to a real value , it was determined temperature limit of 60 ? C and the power limit of 75%. As a result, the core frequency has become a bit of decline.
