Pros: The cards are fast. I game at 1440p, and even oneof these cards is able to output Watch Dogs at the Ultra preset with TXAA 2X at an average of 40 fps. The 6 GB frame buffer really does help, especially if you give the memory a slight push with the overclocking features of this card. For those of you interested, I was able to overclock this to about 1210 Mhz on the core before things got unstable. Even then, temps stayed right around 71C, so not too shabby especially for air cooling. I own TWO of these cards and really only enable SLIw hen Ineed the extra push like in some of the more modern games (or for when I will need it with newer games).In SLI, though, these cards can run pretty hot (top 82C and bottom 67C at max loads), but not bad overall.
Cons: This ismarked as theOC version on Newegg and even on the case, but when Irecieved mine the cores were only clocked to 901 mhz, so beware of faulty advertising! to get the 954 core clock without OC, you must enable OC Mode in the MSI Gaming App.
-Runs hot in SLI air cooling setup
Other Thoughts: I wanted something with a little more oomph without spending as much to get a 780 Ti. I actually consider this an upgrade from a Ti counterpart due to the larger frame buffer and the near identical FPS numbers. Overclocked, I get better than 780 TI stock performance which is a definite plus. These are mini-Titan Blacks; BUY THEM! Plus, these are more future proof.READ FULL REVIEW
