MSI GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) N570GTX Twin Frozr III PE/OC 1280MB 320-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: The price tag on this overpriced, overweight, piece of "Military Grade" junk is a Pro for MSI. They get money we get cards that fail over and over and over. Then you get a company that does not want to help fix the issue.

Cons: Constant crashing on high end games that an old Gateway FX can handle without crashing. Better yet they say its an overheat issue. at 50c? On a "Military Grade" "Frozr" Card with a crazy looking two fan multi pipe cooling system.
Tried to contact them again they are completely ignoring my requests for help now,They got their money what do they care.
Although their heat comment drove me to understand how truly bad their knowledge is I figured I would test this out. I tried many things.
The one way left to turn down the heat, the way MSI suggests, is by dropping the core voltage and such through the provided software. But because they provide junk like MSI Afterburner software you can min/max out the mhZ on the entire card but the voltage is locked and cannot be unlocked without the use of luck or magic as it seems.
Really pathetic support provided throughout the entire troubleshooting process as well. The phone was ridiculous and MSI web support is impossible to access. Their web support site registration and login processes are both completely broken.

Other Thoughts: MSI dropped to the bottom of my list. I expect that when I spend over $300 per video card I will be getting something decent. I guarantee I would have been happier with a cheaper SLI setup. After many year of being a die hard Nvidia fan MSI has driven me to try a Xfire setup. Thats how bad this card and company failed me.

1 out of 5 eggs Terrible business practices 11/30/2011

This review is from: ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3 AM3 AMD 880G 5 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Who the heck knows

Cons: 2 DOAs in a row? Just like other reviewers I have seen. NewEgg the obvious culprit? 2 unsealed boxes in a row. Brand new. LoL. You liars. Second motherboard box was literally open when I unpackaged it. Like you opened it to make sure it was all there and then didnt bother to close it, just put the processor on top, a pile of paper and then shipped it on its way.

Oh wait though, not DOA just NewEgg selling an imcompatible mobo and cpu combo deal. Have to pull the current chipset and replace them with a new one to get the board to boot the AM3+ you sold with it. Wow.

Would be hilarious to get offered a great deal on a new car but when it doesnt start when you are ready to go home with it they say oh you have to replace the ignition first.

Might as well drive to that big store I am not allowed to mention here if this is the service given by you these days. Atleast they label the refurbs and returns.

Other Thoughts: Phone support at NewEgg just told me that you dont even guarantee your mobo and cpu combos will work together. HAHAHAHAHAHA. YOU FAIL. I can see it now, ooh this box is pretty it will go good with that box, lets sell em together.

I am glad my combo worked too bad my friend wasnt so lucky. Wish I let her go to that big computer store now instead of sending her your way.
