Retail Box and Bundle

The retail box for the ASUS ENGT430 lists the main features that the card comes with and that the card utilizes a ‘dust-proof’ fan that has 25% longer lifespan than a traditional cooling fan. The dust-proof fan is basically a fan that is designed with a different casing around the fan motor/bearing to help keep dust out.

Turning the retail box over, we see even more marketing text in many different languages and more details on features like fuse protection and the GPU guard.

The ASUS ENGT430 video card bundle included with the ENGTX430/DI/1GD3(LP) graphics card includes a quick installation guide, a drivers CD with the multi-language manual and a pair of low profile brackets that can be used.

When you fired up the driver CD that comes with the card you’ll see this GUI that allows you to check out the user manual and install the drivers and utilities if needed.

Taking a closer look at the utility section of the VGA driver disc we can see that it also comes with two utilities that might come in handy.

  • ASUS GamerOSD – Overclock during gameplay
  • ASUS SmartDoctor – Overclocking and Intelligent Hardware Protection Tool

The one that we are highly interested in for this review is the ASUS SmartDoctor utility as that will allow us to adjust the card’s voltages and to overclock it to the max!
