  • Summary: bad warranty service, would rather buy without warranty from this company.
  • Pros: Works great
  • Cons: Dead fan, and they wont send one too you like ANY other company would... nope they think you going without a card for 2-3weeks and charging you for it is better customer service.. XF* sent a fan no problems why can't you MSI

update

Yan L., Newegg
22 March 2012
  • Summary: this is an update review
  • Pros: cool look
  • Cons: I just received my card from RMA. The problem has not been resolved at all!! The fan is still not functioning. Just 1 second of full load, the video card's temperature rises from 50 ℃ to 75 ℃. And the system shut up in 5 seconds under full load, because the video card is too hot! I am really disa...

Black Screen

Jeffery A., Newegg
15 March 2012
  • Pros: Looks nice
  • Cons: I experienced the same things as Kling2001. I do not have any tech skills or know much about computers that the one game i wanted to play (Star Wars: TOR) did not black screen on me. But all the other games would (League of Legends, Amnesia, TF2, Dungeon Defenders). I thought it was my Power Supp...

Too Bad

Kenneth N., Newegg
5 March 2012
  • Summary: 500watt psu recommended, have a 750watt pc,p&c and have 2 3870's in crossfire with no problems; figured it was time for a upgrade.
  • Pros: Looks like a solidly built card, good cooler, looks nice, was quiet at idle
  • Cons: Random black screen, sometimes a green screen with veritcal stripes, most updated drivers used from amd, tried a older driver, still happens, updated my bios with newest drivers, still happens, tried msi live update...that was a joke, it never worked. Then finally while uninstalling drivers, card...

Crossfire

Lea S., Newegg
6 February 2012
  • Summary: The fan does speed up and slow down normally with the load on the GPU. I'm 99% sure it is cooling properly and running fine. I've never had any issue with MSI, I've used their products for quite some time but this is the first time I've needed their support.
  • Pros: Great design over reference. Car run's cool and is very "over clocker" friendly. I have 2 of these in a crossfire setup with an i7 960 and I get a 3DMark 11 score of 8600+. Very solid and very easy to setup and over clock from the CCC (Catalyst Control Center).
  • Cons: I purchased the first card in Nov 2011, and a second one Jan2012. After installing the second card and enabling CF I opened up MSI Afterburner and CCC. That is when I noticed that the GPU temp of the second card showing -35C. Now, if there was a temp issue it would BSOD/smoke/fire etc. I called M...

Doesn't Work

James H., Newegg
11 September 2011
  • Pros: Looks cool.
  • Cons: Didn't work out of the box. I plugged everything in (completely new build) and powered up and all I get is a series of beep codes. Unplugged it and plugged in an old video card into the same slot and everything works.

DOA

TIM V., Newegg
23 August 2011
  • Summary: Unwrapped it and powered down my system, removed the connector caps, plugged it in to my vid slot, plugged in the TWO extra power supply connectors it requires, hit the power switch and....nothing. System wouldn't even power up.
  • Pros: Looks cool but since it never powered up that's all I know..
  • Cons: Didn't work out of the box.
