  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Great graphics solution
Newegg gave me $30 rebate
XFX built the card

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Bought this card last August. The GPU fan failed Oct. 2, 2015 (Friday). Contacted XFX online support. Response came early that Sunday. New cooler assembly shipped following Monday. Cooler received and installed 4 days later. XFX tech. support was responsive and professional. Thanks XFX and Newegg.

Pros: Board layout is pretty nice. Lots of fan headers! Tons of space around the CPU terminal. Bios setup quick and simple. Board posted on initial startup, and I have had no issues.

Cons: The new generation graphics cards are huge dual slot monsters. The fan/heat-sink shrouds on these cards are also huge. When cross-firing on this board, the lower card's shroud contacts the header pins on the lower portion of the board. The power/reset/oc buttons as well as the lcd display are completely covered. I had to shave 1/8" of shroud to clear the pins. Cannot take an egg off. We builders do what we have to.

Other Thoughts: Thank you Newegg and MicroStar! I have been purchasing from you both for at least 14 years. I have never received a doa product from either. Both companies have exceeded my expectations for years, and I have never had an issue w/ either company's Tech Support. Keep up the good work. Hey MSI Devs, can you make the ATX boards 1/2" longer on the southern edge? :)
