Cheaply made product with even worse service. 10/5/2018 3:01:57 PM

Pros: None

Cons: The waterblock suffers from galvanic corrosion without any error by the user.

RMA'ing your card will only net you a used card that's in even worse condition than the one you sent in.
(My second card wouldn't even run stable at high boost clocks; had sever artifacting and crashed after some game time )

RMA'ing that card will net you a card that's not only worse than the previous two, but this time no effort will be put into even making it look clean( I got a clogged water block with blue dye liquid still gunked up in the block as my 3rd card which of course I'm going to RMA again lol )

I have pictures if MSI continues to screw around, I will take this to my creditor(My bank XD!) and have the money charged back to my account.

Overall Review: Stay away from a budget brand like MSI at all cost, there's a reason MSI is labeled a budget brand, it shows in the quality of the products and their service.

Excellent performance with Easy Install 3/16/2018 4:49:14 AM

Pros: Excellent performance on virtually any game I throw at it @2k. (Vermintide 2, FFXV:WE, Witcher 3, etc..)
Easy to install.
Bought it when it was only $560

Cons: The screws were a bit loose on the water-block and I had to tighten them up. (I read the reviews and they were pretty spot on with the cons)
The water-block has a channel that the coolant is supposed to go through but due to the construction, the coolant can leak into the center portion of the acrylic block. It is still in the sealed square of the acrylic but it should get into that space. I will attach a picture noting the area I am talking about.

Overall Review: The price has quadrupled since I bought this, presumably due to the Bitcoin craze.

Great GPU OC is nice 12/12/2017 2:01:13 PM

Pros: EK block is a must for me
not having to do that is much less work
MSI hit the nail on the head with this
OC to 1987 core with out me doing any thing . I have a 480 MM Alpha cool X flow Rad with push pool cooling the card and the CPU and in games the card has not got over 39C that's rly nice

Cons: for me no cons the size of the card fits my build rly nice so but I can see other ppl not digging that at all

Overall Review: I have to say the card not coming with LED lighting is not a bad thing you can go get 2 or 3mm LED lights that go in the 2 lil holes at the base of the water block next to the where you hook up to the PCI E slot right in the acrylic I have 2 blue lights on UV green liquid and it looks awesome
and having it on a riser PCI E cable and stand shows it off rely well

Big and Beautiful. 12/7/2017 2:59:31 PM

Pros: Easy install and looks great in my rig. Does come with 2 plugs. Good price with an EK water block on a 1080. Paid $559.00 with a free copy of Destiny 2.

Cons: No RGB? this thing would look even better if it just had one LED to light up the water block.

Overall Review: Will be watching this card for the next year or so to get another one for an SLI setup I like it so much. There is an RGB plug under the water block near the SLI connections so if someone wanted to get creative they could add some lighting.

Easy Instalation 12/2/2017 5:05:25 PM

Pros: -I didn't know this card existed, absolutely amazed at the simplicity of installation, this makes liquid cooling a breeze!!

Excellent quality 11/2/2017 7:01:50 AM

Pros: I have a dual radiator setup being powered by the Enermax NEOChanger and this thing doesn't even get to 100 degrees Fahrenheit while playing Heroes of the Storm at 2K with everything maxed out. Idles under 80 degrees Fahrenheit in my 69 degree basement.
Looks great, the back plate helps prevent sag

Cons: nothing really other than the card is heavy, but with a full coverage waterblock what do you expect

Overall Review: This is the first time I've done a full custom loop on a video card. It was quite painless. I matched this with the 300 mL version of the Enermax NEOChanger, Primochill 1/2" ID tubing, a Swiftech 240mm radiator, a 120mm rad from an old AIO water cooler I had lying around, and Bitspower connectors. Like I said in the 'Pros', this card runs unbelievably cool with this setup. I have the NEOChanger pump running at a fairly low speed also. Definitely a great card

Great Graphics Card. 10/26/2017 6:12:24 AM

Pros: Has waterblock already installed. Easy to install.

Cons: No lighting on the card. Would be nice to be able to see dragon on the top of the card.

Overall Review: I am writing this review to enter into the MSI Reward Program.
