Card broke after 9 months

Pros: Great Specs on paper

Cons: VGA will not last you
Not quiet at all
Will not last you a year

Other Thoughts: I'm usually very generious with my review, but to be as impartial as possible, I believe I have fairly rated this product 1 star out of 5 stars. I believe any broken product cannot receive anything higher than 1 star. This is only my experience, some other customers have found success, so please take this review with a grain of salt.

I initally purchased the, MSI R7950-3GD5/OC BE Radeon HD 7950 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card, and the card was defected. MSI took about 2 months to send this card as a replacement and the card worked. However, for the past 2 months (about 9 months after), my monitors would would glitch and my computer would freeze and I would have to force a shut down on my computer. I thought it was my monitors, but after testing different monitors, the same thing would occur as well. Also, my monitors have low brightness to perserve my monitor health as well. With this evidence, I doubt my monitors nor the other monitors I've tested is causing the error, it must be the VGA.
I don't know if MSI will give me a replacement, but hopefully they may be able to send me another card (maybe third time is a charm?).

Many people have said this is was a quiet fan, but boy is it loud. Anytime I open any gaming applicaiton, my very quiet computer becomes super loud. My room is near the end of the house and you can hear the fan from the entrance of the room (I am not exagerating). I've cleaned my computer, no dust is on the product or in my computer tower, yet the noise still exists. I then put all my graphics on the lowest setting (not sure why anyone would shell pay a premium price for a VGA to play games or watch movies on the lowest settings), and the fan noise is still very loud.

I will be more than happy to change my review if I receive a working product. I hope my review show my poor experience with 2 VGA products from MSI. To help the PC community, I hope this review serves future customers from any frustration they may experience.

Stay away from MSI

Pros: Great cooler. Much more quiet than reference or even other upgraded coolers. Factory overclock provides great framerates even @ 1440p.

Cons: Broke twice in 2 years. Even though the item is still under warranty, MSI has told me they cannot replace it because they are out of stock. They offered me a 50% refund from my purchase price(Not acceptable) OR a reference design 7950(not acceptable).

At first the e-mail responses were slow(2 business days) but they turned even worse once I questioned why I cannot be given a newer card of similar performance. I have not had a reply in 5 business days + 2 weekend days.

Sufficient

Pros: Suffices, when paired with a 3570K and z77 msi mpower board, in running the following at maximum settings (@1080p):
Without OC:
Skyrim
Sleeping Dogs
Far Cry 3
SimCity (2013)

OC'd to 1100 core / 1575 mem (no voltage change):
Company of Heroes 2
ARMA 3 (5000 draw distance for objects and environment)

Cons: None. At this point might be even better after rebadging and a further price drop

Other Thoughts: no regrets with this card. stays under 70c with my setup OC'd.

Great cards, fluctuating prices

Pros: I managed to snag two of these cards and got lucky with both being 8+6 pin 7970 PCBs. They are stock boost clocked to 960 core and 1250 memory, so I don't know where the MSI support tech responding to reviews is getting that none exist. I asked MSI for a UEFI GOP bios and permission to redo the thermal paste after seeing high temps, and got both. Secure/Fast boot is great and crossfire is very smooth on the latest catalyst beta.

Cons: The price goes up and down quite a bit, as do the included items. Having to redo the thermal paste is not something I expected.

Other Thoughts: If you can get them at the price you want, you'll outperform a titan at a very small fraction of the price.

major dissapointment

Pros: quiet

Cons: The specifications shows this comes clocked at 880mhz and 1250 memory. Imagine my hopeful surprise when I saw the stock core (not boost) clocked at 960Mhz and 1250 memory.
I was surprised alright....... Surprised that my Asus 1gb 6870 out performs this!!!!!. I did the catalyst updating, MB Bios,checked power outputs etc looking for problems.
Well it looks like I got a bad card with NONE of the atypical or usual indications. I just assume it was burned in (overclocked) to try and squeak by and pass a Q.C. test at the factory ... then out the door!
Defective core power states, just conjecture in my opinion.

I mean really?........ a 1gb 6870 out preforming this card??

Will be RMA ing this to NEWEGG

Other Thoughts: I have had great MSI cards in the past
