I knew I should have went with eVGA

  • Summary: Given the Fermi architecture, I expected this card to run hot, and had planned to accommodate for that when I bought the card. The fan issue is throwing me off though. It is such a pain to have to manually spin the fan every time I restart my computer to get it spinning.
  • Pros: Runs the latest games at high to ultra-high settings (Fallout New Vegas, Starcraft 2, Just Cause 2, Mass Effect 2, Mafia II, FF14). When the fan work. Afterburner software is nice and comprehensive. Overclocking would be easy....assuming this card didn't already run hotter than Satan's taint.
  • Cons: Card runs HOT! I was hitting 90-100°F while stress testing or playing intensive games and idling at 65-70°F. That wouldn't do, so I removed the fan case and HS (which had 100x more TIM than needed, although most GFX cards do) and reapplied some AS Ceramique and put her back together. That definit...

  • Summary: I don't understand what is wrong with the card, I have changed all the components of my computer, mobo, psu, cpu, ram, hd and I still have the same problems. The only way it works for me is if I load the drivers from the cd that it came with in safe mode, it wont even work with the most updated...
  • Pros: Great performance, goes through anything that I throw at it . Afterburner software is great.
  • Cons: It worked perfectly for the first month and then the card started to make my computer reboot, and it has gotten to the point where it will not even let me log in to windows 7.

  • Summary: The Msi tech stayed on the phone with me for about 2 hours trying to help me, I really apprieciated that. *System specs* Antect 300 case with 5 fans 670 high performance PSU Gigabyte MA78GM-US2H 4GB 1066 G-SKILL RAM. AMD PHENOM II 940 x4 black edition 8mb cache Windows 7 64 bit home premium
  • Pros: Amazing performance. The green side! Msi support is pretty decent (4/5) answered phone calls fast etc.
  • Cons: *Big* ( did not affect rating ) *Heat and power is high*....as should be suspected. Make sure your PSU can handle this before purchase.( did not affect rating) *problems with installation* after start up my monitor did not read the cards signal. I had to re set the card in the motherboard to fix ...
