Reviews and Problems with MSI N460GTX Cyclone 1GD5/OC
Showing 1-10 of 34
Reliable, high-performance workhorse.
10 December 2013
Summary: This thing has been such a consistent and reliable workhorse, I have to give it 5 stars. It's easy to overclock. There's rarely been a problem with drivers and it's been able to play almost every game on full detail since I bought it. A great value and an incredible performer.
Summary: This works great, and looks really cool. I used it in a computer I built with a Phenom X6 and a Gigabyte Socket AM3/AMD 890GX/SATA3&USB3.0/A&V&GbE/ATX Motherboard GA-890GPA-UD3H. Installation was a breeze, and I love the way this thing looks like something you'd find under the hood of a 50's or 60's muscle car. Has held up to extensive daily use since I bought it in 2010, and had no problems whatsoever.
Summary: I bought two of these for SLI and they run all my games 60 FPS except for Crysis on max graphics which gets 40-50 which is still damn good. just one card only gets 25 fps max graphics on crysis though. they both run pretty cool, gone up to max 55C when overclocked to 820 and benchmarked which is still cool! the fans diddnt even go above 40% speed because it was cruising! normal computer use it idles at 30C The Afterburner software bundled with this is AMAZING!
Summary: I purchased this card because it was good value for money and used the Nvidia reference design layout which allowed me to easily replace the fan with a water cooling block. This modification was straight forward and went without a hitch. The good: Performs reasonable well for games for the price. The bad: I am using this graphics card with a DELL Ultrasharp U3011 (see my review at <...>), this monitor has a maximum resolution of 2560x1600.
Summary: I bought this card about 8 months ago. The Cyclone comes with one of the BEST stock fans imaginable. The card idles in the low 30s, which is incredibly cool. I suspect that one of the reasons why this card performs so well is because of how cool it stays under load-- I've never seen it go above 60 degrees C. Most games don't even push it above 50C. It runs Crysis surprisingly well at 1920 x 1200.
Summary: I really enjoy this card. I can put StarCraft II on "Ultra" and get very solid FPS, even when there is a lot of combat going on with a ton of unit onscreen. I highly recommend this card, it is quiet, it keeps fairly cool, at least in my case it does. I haven't had any problems at all with this card.
Excerpt: I bough this card for gaming build, it was not the cheapest option but I am glad I got this over a HD 5770. The card itself is pretty powerful and has a lot of potential when overclocked and/or run in an sli setup although I only use a single card. I run mine at 850 MHz which is fine for my needs but I have read they can overclock in excess of 900 MHz quite easily. The Cyclone cooler also works well to keep the card both cool and relatively quiet whilst under load.
