The cooler on the MSI card is noticeably heavier than the other two options or the reference design, an indicator that the cooling performance should exceed them as well.  Overclocked speeds on this offering a bit more aggressive: 880 MHz core speed and 1050 MHz memory.

The 6-pin power connections on the MSI card hide slightly under the extended fan shroud and it’s just a bit harder to remove the cables than on the Galaxy or Palit cards.
