Out of the box, the ASUS GeForce GTX 750 Ti OC has a slightly overclocked core, rated at 1,072MHz, which is 52MHz higher than the default base clock of 1,020MHz. With GPU Boost 2.0 technology, the card’s GPU can perform up to 1,150MHz. Despite this, the card’s memory modules are kept at default operating clock speed of 5,400MHz. If you want to tweak things on your own, it does come with its own monitoring and overclocking software utility, ASUS GPUTweak. Another cool feature of this software utility is the streaming tool. It allows you to stream your game play to your gaming buddies. At the same time, comments, images and picture from webcams can also be shared by the streaming tool.
Cooling is handled by standard fin-stacked heat-sink with a pair of 80mm cooling fans; there are no copper heat-pipes in contact with the GM107 core on this card. According to ASUS however, the fan features dust-proof technology, touted to keep dust particles out from the hub of the fan. Hence, the operational lifespan of the cooling fans are naturally extended. The fan shroud of the card has a triplet of thin red stripes that run across its.
entire length. This is the only design element which breaks its plain black tone. The ASUS card further deviates from the reference GTX 750 Ti design by featuring a 6-pin Molex power connector. We presume it is meant to provide more power to its overclocked graphics core. We noticed the printed circuited board (PCB) measures 174mm, 30mm longer than the reference card too. The customized PCB of ASUS plays host to its voltage regulation module (VRM) components, found under the company’s Super Alloy Power brand name. In particular, the alloy components are touted to deliver stable power, and achieve cooler operations. Its concrete core chokes are supposedly able to reduce noise levels, under load. Its capacitors are claimed to have longer operating lifespans. The dual-slot card is 213mm long, when measured from the edge of its fan shroud to the edge of the rear bracket.
For video connectivity, the card features a pair of dual-link DVI-D connectors, one HDMI port, and one D-Sub. We’d question the relevance of the VGA port though as we’d expect most users today to have digital monitors, or have upgraded to one.
