MSI GTX750 Ti Gaming OC Edition



We take a quick look at MSI's take on the GTX 750 Ti. Powerful card that requires no extra power connections.

Looks like a great card, makes me think that OC3D will need to redo their recommended systems. Maybe replace the old 650Ti boost with one of these?

hmm, looking at the article now a few things could be changed, PSU sizes are too high wattage for the lower end system (considering your recent videos and articles) and the HD 7870 Tahiti isn't available anymore.

Back on topic, I do prefer having no PCI-E power than having the badly located 6-pin the ASUS model has.

I can imagine this being insanely quiet.

Stupid as it may be, there's method to the madness. If you look at the PCB, you'll see the power delivery circuitry is near the DVI connectors. It is still funny though, I don't remember ever seeing that done before.

I always wonder... How this shape of blades are so efficient and silent... on MSI Gaming cards
For me these blades looks like push more air and cool better but for now they didn't show such domination over others...

They're silent alright. I'm running this exact card as my GPU Mining card right now and I can't hear even the slightest sound. The only thing I hear is the CPU cooler. All while the card is constantly less than 50°C according to HWMonitor and MSI Afterburner. (And that is with the card overclocked by hand from me to 1280MHz core and 3000MHz Memory)

It didn't even raise the fan-speed. It's unbelievable how good this cooler works for this card.
I guess it could also be cooled passively due to the extremly low TDP, but still, very very quiet.

Just got one of these off eBay, and couldn't be much happier with it - my min FPS have pretty much doubled across the board, and tripled in some cases. Coming from a 650 (non-Ti), this comes for less power and a slightly tidier rig - I can hide the 6-pin round the back, now. I kicked it in the bollocks for an hour with a maxed-out Heaven, but I couldn't make it go over 48 degrees or minimum fan speed. Cushty.

Downers? Well, mine has a very slight cap squeal/rattle when it's under load (and when I turn vsync off and get 200+ FPS, it gets a bit louder), but the game sound and/or Winamp music will drown it out. Also, the heatsink, while effective and gorgeous, is completely unnecessary - I had to move two of my SATA drives to different ports to make room; couldn't they have fit it on a small form-factor PCB?

I currently game at 16*10, but I think a move to full HD would now be feasible.

Seems strange to me to drop the 6 pin power when it's a OC card, not sure how much more of a OC you'd get in comparison to the Asus GTX750Ti OC, That said even with the 6 pin on the Asus card you can tuck it neatly around the back quite stealthily out of sight. This card how ever is just a great choice for ITX builds they perform brilliantly at 1080 for the price and it's Maxwell

There are huge threads online where people are getting 1450/6500 without touching the power limit... not enough brave pills in the world, but it's good to know where the ceiling is.
