Coil Whining nightmare!!! 05/25/2014
It's a good graphics card. Plays intensive graphics games. But don't buy MSI. Buy from other manufacturers instead
It has a very loud coil whining sound( whizzing sound when the card draws power). At first, I thought I'll get used to it, but it gets louder and louder. But there, it was not RMA eligible and I have to call manufacturer. Now It's 6 months and im sorry I bought this.
It will not be covered by MSI warranty as tried registering to their website. Tries to get a lot if personal information from buyer and also you have to upload .jpg images of serial and and receipt which is too bothersome. I would avoid buying products from MSI
