Other Thoughts: I had to up the QPI voltage to get Windows to boot when setting the speed to 1600mhz. When I did that the system wouldn't wake up from standby. I think it's an issue with my particular motherboard and not this memory. I emailed G.SKILL a couple of times and they were fast to respond. I would buy more memory from them.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: MSI is giving you the best bang for your buck with factory overclocking to boot.
Cons: The default shader clock is set too high. I had to underclock it to stop the artifacts. The fan does not change with the temperature. The card gets extremely hot leaving the fan speed at the default 40% when rendering 3D.
Other Thoughts: I installed Riva Tuner to fix the artifacts and the fan issues. The fan will now speed up to 100% if the card gets warmer than 65 C. This type of control should have been built into the firmware. Without Riva Tuner this card would be unusable for me. I would like to see temperature based fan control like some of the other cards have.READ FULL REVIEW
