Pros: Am using this with my Canon LV-7265 projector that came with a
white adapter and wanted black to match my VGA cable. It's short and does the trick. The metal thumb screws are good too.
Pros: Pumps LOTS of air.
Cons: Did I say JET ENGINE LOUD?
Overall Review: These fans are aptly named Delta "Grand High Speed" the "New King of 120mm fans". King? More like KING KONG! I replaced these in my Dell XPS 630i Desktop with Delta AFC1212D-PWM 120mm "Super High Speed" case fans (113
CFM, 46 dBA) which push plenty of air and run them at 40% without the Jet whine of the "grand high speed" fans at the same speed.
Pros: Using these as exhaust fans on my Dell 4700 and 4600 Desktops sitting outside of the back of case by slot card openings for sucking out heat. Living in the desert where the computer room temps range from 82F to 92F. I keep the case doors open and got Radio Shack AC cooling fans blowing into the case from the side. Everything is cool. These are very quiet for me running at full blast, and makes much less noise than the Cooler Master Blast Master 92.
Overall Review: Sadly, it does not cut it for whole house cooling here in the
Pros: Nice looking card.
Cons: Mine only went at about half speed.
Overall Review: Long time MSI multiple graphic card owner here going (way)back to a MSI 5900. This one did work once installed but sadly appeared to be running at half speed or so. Benchmarks were way off. Tried both Nvidia and MSI drivers to no avail. Didnt care to mess with it further and out the door it rma went the next day. Wound up getting my refund from Newegg. Thanks Egg. I then went with a tried and true MSI 285 GTX 1GB Superpipe OC.
Pros: MSI AfterBurner 2.0 Worked OK For Me.
Cons: Not much meat/heft to this card. Did not work right straight out of the box. Looks good though. But looks do not cut it when the computer case is closed.
Overall Review: I bought this really hoping to retire my oem Nvidia GTX 280 that came with my Dell XPS, based on the reviews here. I should say beforehand that I am a big time MSI graphic card fan going back to my FX5900 (hacked bios to FX 5950). I still have my MSI FX5900, 6800GT and 7900 OC still running like clockwork in my machines.
However, out of the box, trying both MSI (259.xx) and
Nvidia (258.xx) drivers, this card (no overclock) right out of the box laid down benchmarks far far lower than my
GTX280. Something was wrong. It had no oomph, ie: no horsepower. I didnt waste any time figuring it out, I returned it to Egg.
Pros: This MSI NX7900GS 512 MB OC card rocks! Running XP with Nvidia (stay away from MSI drivers) 84.21 drivers. This card is QUIET as a mouse and runs COOL.
Overall Review: Great Performer and with the OC is just as fast as a 7900 or 7950 GT. For those of you (like me) who are not rushing out to buy Vista and waiting until Vista SP2 in 2009, this card will do you good in the meantime!
Comments: Who needs the $550 Nbox 5900 Ultra when the MSI 5900 256MB just
does about the same job. Benchmarks are close to the Ultra and
a bit of OC'ing brings it up to the Ultra. It has the same
fan/heatsinks as the Nbox Ultra and talk about QUIET...you
can put your ear to it and cant hear it running! MSI makes
the BEST Nvidia cards and this one for $339 cant be beat!
