Rebate is a lie, Card is great hardware 01/24/2013
I picked this card up in October and love it's performance and cooling. I had a 560 TI that I hooked a friend up with. This 570 GTX runs 15 C lower than the 560 TI reference (nVidia branded) card.
Meanwhile, the 'Rebate' offer was the shadiest garbage I've every dealt with.
I followed all the requests and sent in the documentation. Apparently my request was denied because I (wait for it) sent them a copy of my invoice without a tracking number on it. They listed this as 'Invoice Missing', despite seeing it attached to the RMA request site status checker.
As you would guess, this stipulation is no where to be found in the 'terms' for this rebate.
I email support asking what the deal is. Begrudgingly, I get a reply back from them detailing the above tracking issue, then informing me that emailing the 'correct' copy isn't allowed. So I send another physical copy of this invoice, in the mail.
I never hear another word about my rebate and surely haven't received a cent of said Visa check card.
MSI, whoever is handling your rebate system... scumbag rebate company (seems about right) might need to consider doing their jobs and not screwing customers over.
Great Hardware, Garbage Rebate promises.
-1 egg for rebate, because I'm guessing the rebate processing is 3rd party.
Otherwise, MSI needs to hire some new staff.
