Pros:

Hopefully a clever lawyer will pick up on the issue and get me a settlement check.

Cons:

Constant video hardware errors cause the display driver to stop working and recover.

Tom's Hardware has an article about the issue titled "MSI Caught Overvolting GTX 660 Ti, 670 Power Edition Cards", which explains that MSI violated design specifications ultimately causing a chip to receive 9.3V instead of 5V. This huge overvoltage causes many to not get past POST, and others like me to have a completely unstable system.

Other Thoughts:

You can see MSI's official response on their site, the page is titled "MSI Releases the statement for the test of GTX 660 Ti and GTX 670 from Tom's Hardware".

It is basically legal speak that says keep RMAing your card for the next 3 years.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

There are no issues with this product as it was intended in design.
If you believe that your product is defective, please proceed to file a warranty claim online.

1. MSI respects the result which is tested by Tom’s Hardware, but we have much confidence and believe our products would not cause any customer RMA concerns.
2. Since MSI designs these custom products with overclocking in mind, we “supercharge” these cards because we’re anticipating enthusiast to overclock. Because of this design decision and the higher component quality, we’re able to provide more power to the board resulting in higher and longer GPU Boost operation without reducing the lifetime of the graphics card or warranty term.
3. MSI’s all graphics cards including GTX 670 and GTX 660 Ti passed strict test and stand behind our products with a 3 year warranty.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the product, please do not hesitate to contact us directly at usreview@msi.com and we will be more than happy to assist you, thank you.

Best Regards,
MSI Review Team | usreview@msi.com
