Overall Review: Nice price point for a good balance of speed and capacity.
Pros: Nice aesthetic with addressable RGB.
Performs very nice and is plenty fast enough even at stock clocks for high end gaming.
Cons: Default rainbow effect is an eyesore. (personal preference more than anything else)
Confusing workaround required to get it to sync with Mystic Lighting
Overall Review: Not really sure what to say, performs exactly how I'd want it to with my usage case. Has a nice aesthetic and lots of lighting options to fit your needs. Only issues I had with this thing was getting the addressable RGB software to work properly with my mobo.
Initially I installed the G.SKill software only to find out that my changed lighting settings wouldn't apply. After looking it up I had to do a BIOS update, but even after this update it still wouldn't work.
I eventually found out that I had to install the G.Skill application, not run that .exe but instead run MSI's Dragon Center, and then, and only then will dragon center detect my RAM and let me change light settings. I know most of this stuff is at the fault of MSI, but what does annoy me is that I can't uninstall the G.Skill program without uninstalling the driver that controls the lighting itself.
Pros: Great price to performance ratio.
Very nice appearance.
Can overclock really well (may differ depending on your model)
PERFECT GPU for 1440p gaming
Cons: No DVI port
GeForce expierence is annoying.
Heavy (make sure to tighten that mounting screw)
Even in 2019 RTX is still a gimmick, with only a handful of games supporting it at the moment.
Overall Review: Jumped ship from a 1060 6gb to this card and I am very surprised how much better this thing performs. Was going to get a 2080 super, but ended up settling on the 2070 super.No regrets.
As far as graphically intensive games go, I;ve only tested a few, but all of them I've played so far, all at 1440p (Monster Hunter World, Star Citizen, Warhammer: Vermintide 2, No Mans Sky, Battlefield 1) get a good 60+ FPS at max or near max settings.
