“Hi-hooo ... silver.”

We review the MSI GeForce GTX 1070 Quick Silver 8G (OC edition) armed with 8GB GDDR5 graphics memory. This all new 'Quick Silver' edition is the latest SKU from MSI located in the Gaming series. The graphics card comes with extra LED functionality and the very cool TwinFrozr revision VI cooler in a rather new and unusual color schema. As you guys all know, we've reviewed the MSI Gaming X and Gaming Z editions of their 1070 series as well. Think of the Quick Silver edition as something in-between the X and Z Gaming models. The Quick Silver edition has similar clock speeds compared towards the Gaming X, but is getting the more advanced LED activated back-plate from the Z model. There is however something else quite different, and that obviously is the silver/black design, again for a reason. This year year MSI has been releasing motherboards with a silver / titanium colored coating which they tagged as the Titanium series. A good example is the MSI Z170A XPOWER Gaming Titanium (review here) as shown below:

Thing is that MSI graphics cards a predominantly are all black and white or black and red. So the creative minds at MSI figured, let's take the good stuff from the gaming series and create a new style graphics card to match that design. The end results thus is the MSI GeForce GTX 1070 Quick Silver 8G OC. I repeatedly say ÓC'as a non-OC model also is released, with slightly lower clock frequencies. Right with that explained, the cooling perf of this product will be terrific once again as aside from the new color, the cooler is a TwiNFrozr iteration VI cooler that was improved and combined with a new generation fans, the airflow is improved whilst remaining silent. Up-to 60 Degrees C the card will stay in passive mode, e.g. the fans will not spin. The TWIN FROZR cooler is intensified by a white LED glow shining through the cover,  a MSI GAMING dragon RGB LED on the side can be set to any color of preference to match the LED lights in the color-tone of your PC. The GTX 1070 Quick Silver comes with MSI's traditional Military Class 4 components and holds both an 8- and 6-pin power connector for the 10-phase power design. At the backside you'll spot a nice  solid back-plate. Both versions do have TwinFrozer VI as wel as a memory cooling plate and a PWM heatsink. You'll receive configurable Boost Clock / Base Clock / Memory Frequencies that can be setup by the Gaming APP. 

The card is clocked at default at the Gaming mode performance and that boils down towards clock frequencies of 1771 MHz (boost) / 1582 base) MHz with 8192 MB GDDR5 / 8000 MHz effective data-rate on the memory. Right, we have enough to talk about and to show, let's head on-wards in the review.

We'll start with a product overview in the photo-shoot, next page my kind Sir.
