Pros:

Cheaper than other OC'ed GTX 660Ti

Cons:

With its inadequate cooling, this card probably shouldn't have been factory overclocked. After installing mine, I noticed my games just crash randomly about 5 to 10 minutes in. I got really frustrated so I downloaded MSI's Afterburner and Kombuster utilities. I ran the stress test in Kombuster, and sure enough, it crashes after about 5 minutes. The GPU temp reaches a scorching 90C. Next, I went into Afterburner utility and decreased the GPU clock (which is OC'ed by default), to the stock speed of regular GTX 660Ti, and no surprise here, Kombuster and games no longer crash.

Other Thoughts:

I will be returning this card to newegg for another brand. Luckily newegg came through and said they will be providing a pre-paid label for the RMA. It would have been insult to injury to pay another 15-20 dollars to ship this insured back to newegg, for a manufacturer's defect.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

We apologize for the issues that you are having with this product.
Overclocked GPU can run hotter than usual, therefore you will also need more airflow in the system to keep the heat away.
If you weren't able to do the above, then you could also reduce the frequency suitable for your system environment.

If you have any questions, please kindly get in touch with our tech support team directly at 626.271.1004 for assistance during regular business hours from M to F, 6am to 6pm Pacific Time, or you can email us at usreview@msi.com.
When contacting us, please kindly include your product info, thank you.

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