Fast but Poorly Assembled

Pros: This card is very fast compared to the 970 I had in my computer previously. I have not run any synthetic stress tests but I can run all the games I play at max such as The Forest, Borderlands 2, War Thunder, Resident Evil 7, and GTAV and have 70-230fps depending on the game. I am looking forward to playing Hellblade: Senuas Sacrifice and other, more recent games, to see what the performance will be. The MSI software does not have the best layout but it is not overly complicated and has about a dozen skins immediately from installing so everyone can find a skin and design they prefer.

Cons: The default fan curve is crummy. I had to download the MSI Afterburner software to make a better fan curve. It did not help initially. It ran way to hot and the cooler was unable to regulate the temperature. With the stock cooler the card idled at 85-101 degrees fahrenheit. It jumped around that much without me using the computer. Under load the temperatures shot up and jumped around from 155-171 degrees. Unacceptable. So! I purchased an after market cooler* and installed the sucker. Upon removing the default cooler I noticed two problems with the assembly process. The first issue that arose was once the outer case was removed the fins were clearly damaged. It looked like someone had hit it hard with a metal rod about the thickness of a screwdriver twice creating a clear dent. The second problem was the application of the thermal paste. The thermal paste was applied to only half of the processor, not even kidding. A thick and wide layer of thermal paste was also applied AROUND the processor rather than where the processor and the copper thermal block come into contact.

Overall Review: The aftermarket cooler keeps this GPU at a constant 82 degrees (summer, appartment with no AC) at idle and between 111-114 under load. The thermal paste I applied also coats all of the contact area for the processor and cooling block.

*I purchased an open box version, not refurbished, just open box. I highly recommend this aftermarket cooler: https://www.arctic.ac/eu_en/ax4.html
It was my first time opening a gpu up and the process was not difficult despite my nerves. If you are new to playing with the insides of computers just watch some youtube videos over and over, study and memorize the architecture, and follow the directions in the manual(s). Even with the purchase of the aftermarket cooler I saved hundreds of dollars so I am happy with my purchase but very dissatisfied with MSIs quality control.

Amazing card

Pros: super powerful
gets the job done
it does what it says it does

Cons: i did seem to notice that i HAD to make my own fan curve, if you do so ive noticed my GPU temp stays at the perfect temperature.
some people may find that to be a con but i always do it on my video cards anyway as the factory one kinda sucks imo
but also because of that it is a little noisy at times but it doesn't bother me.

Overall Review: love the product would buy again
also seen a lot of people talking about over heating . ever since i used my own fan curve no issues at all.

but with a nice CPU and other components in your computer your PC can be a power house. running the new COD at 180fpss

Smoke and sparks

Pros: worked great for 1 month

Cons: stopped working smoke and spark, destroyed my motherboard from the same company

Overall Review: Bought and used for only one month brand new, stopped working when it started sparking and smoking, had to pay for shipping to send it back, they will only give refurbished. If I wanted a refurbished card I would've bought for cheaper. Never buying from msi graphics card or motherboard again, only evga or gygabyte from now on. 1000$ down the drain in 1 month thanks to this card.

Barebones 1080, nice card but no extras included.

Pros: Small(ish) size, needs only one power cable, conservative styling, decent power, MSI lights up for those that like flashy things.

Cons: I've grown spoiled as to what I expect from cards at this price point. The AERO disappointed me slightly. I was surprised to see that there was no backplate (simply assumed all cards at this level had these now) and zero cables included in box. No adapter for DVI/VGA, power cable adaptor, nothing.

Overall Review: I guess I'd rather have the $20 steam card than the cables I won't use anyway. This is a barebones card, you get the card and a disk. No extras. I do miss the backplate though....just like the look and they protect the top of the card nicely.

Better than the reviews would suggest.

Pros: 1080 is a powerful card. I am a high refresh rate 1080p gamer. This card slams games at 1080p with most games over the 144MHz It is not the coolest. I regularly gets to 80c but, the fan is not stupid loud or anything. I have it in a Meshify C so good air flow is definitely a plus. Runs my i7 7700k and my 2600x It's a good match for these CPUs. I am very happy with it

Cons: It's a hot card no doubt. But I think that since I mostly play eSports at 1080p this is more than enough card for me.

Overall Review: Once the warranty runs out I will be putting in on liquid. Great card !!!!
