The card is factory overclocked to 960 MHz. In addition, it had an 8-pin and 6-pin power instead of two 6-pins. I believe this is only on newer revisions. If you don't have an 8-pin power cable, an adapter is included. Card also has a dual BIOS switch. If you plan on overclocking it further, be sure to increase the power limit, otherwise AMD Powertune will decrease the clock speed further than the stock clock speed when the power limit is exceeded.
This is a fantastic video card. Shocking enough, I actually ended up getting one with an HD 7970 PCB, and the 8 pin + 6 pin connectors. This video card just rips through games at 1920 x 1080P resolution. The 384 bit bus, and 3 gigs vram definitely helps to obtain great frame rates when using high amounts of AA. I just cant recommend this video card enough. It is definitely worth a 5 star rating. I had an MSI GTX 660 Ti, but I sold it to a customer, and got the MSI HD 7950 instead. I am glad I made the switch.
It seems the current model shipping is the dual 6 pin connector Boost Edition cards. It's no longer the 8pin+6pin 7970 PCB card. Card is actually noticeably louder than my GB Windforce card though when maintaining the same temperature (regardless of it being top or bottom).
Be sure to install the latest drivers from AMD (12.11 beta as of January 2013) as older drivers seem to be causing rendering artifacts and glitches, that and the bundled overclocking software, MSI Afterburner, seemed redundant as of the current video drivers which already includes AMD Overdrive.
