Summary: A steal at such a price. Holding up VERY well and can take on any game thrown at it. No reason to get too detailed on performance, since I'm sure TomsHardware has a great benchmark on this wonderful card. A well-deserved upgrade from the 500 series and I expect this to hold up for years to come.
Summary: This is a very high quality well made card, and its fast a a rocket. Love the 4GB of VRAM. The twin Frozr fans keep it around 65C under heavy load, and its very quiet all the time. I can play ANY game on the highest of settings (BF4, Titanfall, Watchdogs) and get 70-80 FPS, sometime over 100. It essentially a GTX 680 on steroids. And the red and black Gaming design looks pretty sweet as well. Outstanding card.
Summary: This card delivers as advertised. For the performance I'm getting out of it, it is incredibly cool. My current case has no dedicated case fans, just the power supply fan and then the internal fans on this video card and the CPU and I am not having any overheating issues. Great performance without the wind-tunnel sound! Buy it!
When it comes to video card, MSI is one of the best.

Summary: MSI knows how to make video cards. It is one of the most careful manufacturer in ventilation and quality of components used. One of my first recommendations when it comes to the video card. The GTX 770 is the best value at the moment. I consider the 780 too expensive. Almost bought the R9 280x Sapphire, but the price was absurd at the time. Glad MSI respects consumers and not put exorbitant prices.
Summary: I've had no problems at all with this graphics card. It's quick possibly the best 770 on the market, and although the GPU reactor on the top, I don't believe, makes any noticeable difference, it could possibly give the card cleaner power and more stability overall. Although it could be intrusive if you run two in SLI, but if you take the top cover off of it, It won't take up any more room than a normal card. It cools very well and is very quiet.
Summary: I had to download a voltage unlocker for MSI Afterburner from the overclock.net forums from a user named Rbby258. After that, I was able to overclock as follows: Core voltage = +125 mV, Mem voltage = +100 mV, Aux voltage = 60 mV; Core Clock = +100 MHz, Memory Clock = +400 MHz Power Limit = 109% Temp Limit = 79 C (prioritize) The end result is that my core boost clock runs at 1346 MHz which is 24.1% higher than Nvidia's reference boost clock of 1086 MHz for the GTX 770.
