MSI GTX 970 4GD5T OC Review

The MSI GTX 970 4GD5T OC is an affordable model that does everything you would expect from a kick ass OC. Some of the amazing features that this beat comes with are the 5 twinFrozr cooler, factory over clocked for better performance, energy efficient and a 4GB graphics memory. At slightly over $300 you will wonder what else you have been looking for once you come across this device. From its looks to its performance, everything is excellent. Did I mention how quiet it is? Well, let’s see why you may need to buy one of this performing gaming OCs.



The MSI GTX 970 4GD5T OC comes with a custom PCB and the newly released TwinFrozr V cooler that keeps everything under check thanks to its double fans that can work independently. All levels of noise and temperatures are kept to the minimum at all times while the 1140MHz core GPU can clock to a maximum of 1500MHz. It’s 6 and 8-pin power header is a beast and everything in this OC is improved then packaged on a 6 phase VRM design.



The MSI GTX 970 4GD5T OC offers a good performance but is yet to reach the exceptional levels of the MSI GTX 980 4GD5T OC. It’s just a couple of steps ahead of the 780 series in terms of performance. This means that it’s unnecessary to upgrade your 780 series. Nevertheless, if you were left behind in the GTX 680 series, you seriously need to upgrade. It’s amazing how performance per generation has doubled in the last ten years. If we stick to the release schedules, I’m sure we will have a 30% performance increase in the near future but right now the MSI GTX 970 4GD5T OC is just on the average performing gaming OCs.



When it comes to cooling, the GTX 970 rivals the 980. However, the guys at Nvidia decided to add the TwinFrozr V cooler which shaved of a considerable amount of degrees Celsius. Its cooling effect is exceptional and the noise levels are kept low at all times. When at maximum under load, you would expect some sound pressure but only when the card is warm. However, when your PC is at normal or IDLE, you can’t hear a thing.



The 4GB DDR5 graphics card that come with this beast only assures you one thing: Gaming Sweetness! You should also expect high levels of resolution with the MSI GTX 970 4GD5T OC. It’s possible to play any game without any problem up to WHQD at a resolution of 2560×1440. Moreover, you can play any modern game and receive decent image quality and good AA levels. The 970 isn’t yet capable of doing good in UHD but the 980 can really produce quality images in 4K.



Finally, the MSI GTX 970 4GD5T OC is an affordable and a high performance beast. You do not want any noise coming from your card and this one addresses that issue exceptionally. Even though it’s already factory over clocked, this performing gaming OC can still stretch further, to give you excellent performance. According to test ran by experts, this is the most silent OC around and so if you can spend extra $300, then go for it.

  • The Good :
    High performance, Quiet, Affordable
  • The Bad :
    Will probably be replaced by more performing models soon
Our score:
4.5 / 5
