I recently purchased a MSI HD7950OC TF3 PCi3 from microcenter. It seems like a great card. I was looking up some things about it for overclocking and I seem to stumbled across something odd. Every single 7950 card I find MSI or otherwise seems to have 6x6 power plugs. Mine has a 6x8. When looking on MSI's site they don't show photos of that side of the card. The card even came with a 6 to 8 pin adapter. Anyone else have this card and know why it seems to differ from all the other 7950s or did I get some other magical thing? This was not an open box or anything that I am aware of.
Found a post on another site that said this: MSI has started using reference 7970 PCBs for their 7950 Twin Frozr 3 OC cards
Here is the link to that site although it really was created to talk about Aquacomputer 7950 blocks: http://hardforum.com...d.php?t=1704168
