3 out of 5 eggsRefurbished?

Pros: Good Card, Nice Cooler! Plays Many Games at High Settings!
NewEgg Excellent as Always.

Cons: Well First, The Fan Will Let The Card Smoke! If Not Adjusted Manually!
Guss They Want to Force People to Use MSI Afterburner!
How Hard Can it Be to Let Us Write Are Own Fan Profiles and Flash it in to the Card?
The Back of The Card Seems Scratched also the Fans Like Almost if it Where Refurbished!
It Seems No Matter What i Do i Always Miss Out on Specials!
Went on Special After I Buyed it! No Game! No Coffee! :-)

5 out of 5 eggsGame code no bueno

Pros: Second purchase of this make/model GPU. First one works so well I'm going to crossfire it and shoot for the stars.

Cons: Dirt3 code invalid.
Sent emails to concerned parties. Known issue and shouldn't advertise and offer if it's such a problem to redeem code.

Other Thoughts: 5 eggs for MSI HD6870
1 egg for Dirt3 code - only because I would HAVE to at least give one egg to review

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Use a 2Gb HD5870 Eyefinity 6 edition card on my rig at home - I assumed this 1Gb HD6870 would be a lesser card but it might even be better. Core and mem clocks are high on stock settings and much room for OCing - Eyefinity + Steam on work PC might not have been the brightest productivity idea, but I'm having a blast

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Active display adapter
Three + monitors of the same resolution
This Card
650+watt PSU
All you need for Eyefinity greatness

2 out of 5 eggs19ºC cooler than reference card? Nope

Pros: The dual fans are quiet below 40%
No rebate issues

Cons: The card I received does not perform as advertised. The GPU temperature will reach up to 93ºC when gaming.

Other Thoughts: I paid the $20 dollar premium over other brands because I was building a quiet and efficient single card gaming PC. The idle temps are fine (41ºC) but this card puts out way too much heat on load. Setting an aggressive fan curve is not a solution if noise is a concern. This is my first MSI product and it does not live up to the hype.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued MSI Customer,

We would like to apologize for the issue you have experienced with this particular VGA. Please email me directly via your VGA's serial number and your complete contact information, subject heading "EAHR6870". I would like to help you get this resolved.

Best Regards,

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great card, got two of these in crossfire. Easily overclocked to 1000MHtz with a lil xtra voltage. Cards run very cool for how little ventilation room they have in crossfire. Cards rarely ever breaks 60C under full load and 30C ambient.

Cons: Have not found anything as of yet.

Other Thoughts: If you are having drver resets or black screens your voltage is probably too low for your clock speed. I needed about 1.2 to be stable at 1000MHtz.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks like a charm

Pros: It does what it is supposed to do. Runs games on eyefinity just fine. Ran a few games on a 55' LED TV at 240 Hz and a 47' LED LCD at 120 Hz. All the modern games that were ran on ultra settings ran beautifully with out a hiccup.

Cons: The heat sinks are assembled kind of oddly, thus there is a lot of ventilation for dust particles to get into this card. I use compressed air to clean the card of dust on a regular basis.

Other Thoughts: I am not an enthusiast gamer yet and this card has had no issues thus far. I haven't stressed the card out yet. I am still thinking between grabbing another 6870 or just upgrading to the 28 nm cards. I also wanted to state I am not buying any video cards just for some youtube benchmarking. I only choose a card for what I need it for and what is necessary and not wasting cash on which brand is better. One more thing, for multiple displays, I recommend a card with more memory.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: - Runs fairly cool all-season long (I live in California and have a Cooler Master HAF 932). Idle and non-gaming temps in the 30s (and low 40s after gaming/benchmarking) and gaming/benchmark temps are in the 60s to low-70s (the GPU stayed in the 60s when I played Borderlands while benchmarking and Mass Effect got it up to the low 70s).

- The dual fans are very quiet in idle and gaming. When not gaming, the fans usually run at about 20% and gaming takes it up to 40-45%. You really don't hear the fans until you set it to around 55-60% speed.

- For a mid-range card, you can get at least 30-35 FPS on max settings in just about every game out there with little to no hiccups if you're running a single 1080p screen (I can't say anything about Eyefinity since it's too pricey for me).

- Factory OC (+20 mhz on the core clock)

Cons: None I can think of except maybe 20 mhz core clock OC from the factory doesn't amount to much and begs for a higher OC.

Other Thoughts: I bought this card last year around this time to replace my Best Data Radeon HD 5770 that died (I couldn't game or benchmark but I could do everything else with it still so it was probably "semi-dead"). I've been reading the other reviews about it running stable after overclocking which is something I may try. Probably instead of the 1000/1200 OC most have done, I may stick with a more conservative OC (probably 950/1100). I bought this card when it was $230 but it was the best investment I had.

5 out of 5 eggsAlready was great, crossfire is better.

Pros: The 6870 was already a very reasonable chip for the price.
I bought this to do crossfire with the reference one I already owned and does it deliver!
Very quiet for what it is capable of.
Overclockable, 1ghz on the core no problem with a little extra voltage.
TwinFrozr is leaps and bounds cooler running than the reference design. (I have both and you can tell the difference in temperature and sound.)

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Make sure your PSU is big enough, even for just one. You don't want anything less than a 650-watt PSU for this puppy or 800-watt for two assuming you have a CPU that can get a little power hungry.

MSI has always made quality hardware, I've never been disappointed with them.
