While the stock GeForce GTX 760 is one of the best price/performance platforms to come along to date, the Gigabyte GTX 760 OC takes it a step further on every level. The “OC” naturally stands for “overclock”, with the Gigabyte GTX 760 OC taking the base/boost clock up to a screaming 1085/1150MHz. Combined with GPU Boost 2.0, this leaves the Gigabyte GTX 760 OC regularly producing sustained speeds of over 1200MHz. While increased speed typically results in increased heat, the new Gigabyte Windforce 3X with Triangle Cool Technology keeps the GTX 760 OC running far cooler and quieter than a normally clocked reference card. Three slim fans combined with a large fin array, three 8mm direct touch heatpipes and a unique RAM heat spreader all keep heat at bay. 2GB of GDDR5 are clocked to an effective 6008MHz on a 256-bit interface. To optimize the GTX 760, Gigabyte includes the OC Guru II tool for tweaking voltages, clocks and fans along with complete monitoring capabilities and even BIOS flash tools. Four outputs include DVI-I, DVI-D, DP and HDMI with audio. In keeping with the push toward efficiency, the GTX 760 OC requires one 6-pin and one 8-pin PCIe, but only a recommended 500W PSU.
