MSI 7850/OC 07/23/2013
Specifications and noise level is very acceptable. My card ran at about 75C under gaming loads with fan speed at 25%. You cannot hear it and the temp was controlled. I do have very good airflow and a large case (Corsair 800D)
It crashed in gameplay - repeatedly. I should have gone through Newegg to RMA it, but I went through the manufacturer. That may have been a mistake. However, MSI has done everything their policies state in getting me a replacement card (they are by definition refurbished and that is known upon reading their RMA guidelines) each time and I am getting a 4th this week. It may be the game I play or something in the driver because my MSI 5850 works without a hitch - I was just upgrading it.
I bought this on sale with a rebate also. I thought it was a great deal. I have RMAd the GPU twice - so 3 cards have crashed in gameplay repeatedly.
Again, MSI has done what it should to this point. My concern is that if a 4th does not work, I will have to keep doing this. They will perform a detailed test on the next GPU before I get it though. Hope it works so I can up MSI's rating here.
