Pros: Working like a champ.
Lower temps then when purchased. Thermal paste on these cards is junk. My friend reapplied his and temps dropped 9 Celsius
Looks awesome of course
Very strong card. Stonger than my 290 reference even at higher clocks, probably because of the Hynix RAM I imagine.
Cons: Thermal paste is lame and it has a dumb warranty sticker on the screw so you can't replace it. If you are going to put a sticker there so we can't improve the paste then at least use good paste. I don't want to void my warranty so I'm not going to remove the cooler like my friend did. But I wish I could lower my temps 9C like he did. Dumb policy.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: So far so good.
RAM more powerful than my reference MSI 290
very sturdy. The back plate does a good job of getting heat away from the PCB. The back plate gets very hot, so a good idea to get a fan to get that heat away from the card on there.
Cons: Core doesn't overclock as well as my Reference MSI
wish the fan were capable of more rpm so it would cool a bit better.
The fans are quiet, that's good, but I'd like to be able spool them up higher. I realize it would be louder then, but I would like the capability. Is there a bios to fix this?
Pros: Please. 580.00?
picked up an MSI for 420.00 at MicroAwesome. Nice one Newegg
