Reviews around quality (4.42 of 5)

  • Out of the box, this card idles the fan at 50 degrees C or lower, and DOESN’T RUN THE FANS AT FULL
  • The build quality and performance make this card an easy recommendation from me
  • The image and texture quality for almost every new game looks so crisp and refreshing
  • Overall solid build quality and the value is definitely there
  • Rendering a video now is not a problem, and all my videos are in the best possible quality

Reviews around product (4.39 of 5)

Reviews around gpu (4.28 of 5)

  • I can see the GPU has no issues at that res, it's my CPU bottlenecking
  • this GPU isn't all that loud in my Phanteks P400S.
  • I imagine it would be a perfect 2nd gpu when im ready for it
  • Great GPU, a benchmark with FF14 hit a whopping 12k score on max setting on FHD monitor.
  • This GPU is great, if your on the fence about upgrading to the current generation of NVIDIA just do it

Reviews around performance (4.06 of 5)

  • For example, I had put off playing Assassin's Creed Origins due to poor performance on the R9 390.
  • Great performance with lower temps than founders edition.
  • One of the most visually appealing cards in my opinion, along with most msi products, great performance and reliability
  • If and when they even release the first versions they will probably be reference only with inferior performance and cooling.
  • However people complain about overclock potential being low with the stock cooler, the performance is already high so the need to overclock is just for those who want that extra few frames per second

Reviews around solution (4.03 of 5)

  • Finally, a single card solution that is able to achieve playable frame rates even at 4K/UHD resolutions - NICE!7
  • This card slices through games quickly and quietly, thanks to the bullt-in closed-loop cooling solution
  • MSI warranty is only 3 years (2 years with labor included), so keep that in mind as this card uses an AiO cooling solution; if that pump fails, no gaming for you until the replacement arrives; EVGA's warranty is slightly better at 3 years labor included and can also be transferred to follow-on owners3
  • I used the coupon to get all EKWB water cooling solution and so far the card has been running great
  • The NZXT Kraken G12 paired with a Corsair H75 allow me to push this card as hard as I please, and I've yet to see a temp higher than 60 celcius

Reviews around beast (3.75 of 5)

  • I'd highly recommend these cards... they are nice little beasts just waiting to tear up BF-4 and other games at ULTRA
  • , I’m very happy with my product and my purchase, 9/10 would buy again (9 just because the software for controlling the LED’s on the card is BS, but with that aside, is a solid card)
  • I's a ridiculous beast of a card which runs everything I've ever played at more than double the framerates with the quality forced higher than the highest settings.
  • Out of the box, this card idles the fan at 50 degrees C or lower, and DOESN’T RUN THE FANS AT FULL
  • , I’m very happy with my product and my purchase, 9/10 would buy again (9 just because the software for controlling the LED’s on the card is BS, but with that aside, is a solid card)

Reviews around design (3.70 of 5)

  • In short, if you're looking for a card that has a killer performance, a great design, a brilliant cooling system, a great assortment of ports, and much more, I would highly recommend adding this card to your rig
  • When I had it apart I could see the cooler was very well designed and everything looked well-made (I've had almost every gen of nVidia
  • The design of the card is fantastic, the RGB system easy to modify without much trouble, and the performance is out of this world.
  • , I’m very happy with my product and my purchase, 9/10 would buy again (9 just because the software for controlling the LED’s on the card is BS, but with that aside, is a solid card)
  • Can't say enough good things about the see through water block, very cool design don't see a need to upgrade a new card for a long time

Reviews around thing (3.67 of 5)

  • That thing was so unbearably noisy that I decided to sell it and take my chance with this card
  • Fortunately, the whole thing works perfectly, so thank you Nvidia for the great packaging and the way overly designed GPU case
  • card plays most game at the FPS as i expected but man does this thing stay hot.
  • Fortunately, the whole thing works perfectly, so thank you Nvidia for the great packaging and the way overly designed GPU case

Reviews around gaming (3.49 of 5)

  • I strongly recommend everyone for who wants excellent gaming performance.
  • Same PCB as the far more expensive Gaming X, meaning excellent VRM and power
  • GAMING X and ARMOR have very similar noise, and the STRIX is actually very noisy, as well as my previous GIGABYTE GTX 670 WINDFORCE, also with three fans.
  • Also, If you're interested in a silent PC, the Gaming X comes highly recommended, because of the fantastic implementation of the Twin Frozr VI cooler
  • The NZXT Kraken G12 paired with a Corsair H75 allow me to push this card as hard as I please, and I've yet to see a temp higher than 60 celcius

Reviews around star (2.28 of 5)

  • MSI loses one star for not pricing this at the 600 to 650 range.
  • , I’m very happy with my product and my purchase, 9/10 would buy again (9 just because the software for controlling the LED’s on the card is BS, but with that aside, is a solid card)
  • Out of the box, this card idles the fan at 50 degrees C or lower, and DOESN’T RUN THE FANS AT FULL
  • An extremely good graphics card but 1 star is chucked away due to the extremely quick heat that this card disperses.
  • , I’m very happy with my product and my purchase, 9/10 would buy again (9 just because the software for controlling the LED’s on the card is BS, but with that aside, is a solid card)

Reviews around time (1.69 of 5)

  • This time the allure was just too strong with the 8 GB Micron memory and the fact that this card would last a good two years (at least) before I had to replace it.
  • The issue happens every time the computer is freshly started up, however, and I really am not 100% sure what the culprit is yet
  • I Have a very hard time imagining anyone being disappointed if you're existing cards are a couple generations back.
  • Out of the box, this card idles the fan at 50 degrees C or lower, and DOESN’T RUN THE FANS AT FULL
  • Definitely notice a stark difference in rendering/framerates, and incidentally load times (Black Desert Online)

Reviews around coil whine (1.00 of 5)

  • Now I understand why people complain on a coil whine, toxic fumes, manufacturer support etc. etc
  • Both cards had a lot of coil whine, and have done this on two different power supplies
  • They haven't made many revisions to the product yet, so coil whine is going to happen.
  • you have poor airflow over the backplate).Cons: Have to hope you don't get a card with bad coil whine
  • I guess there's a few effects produced that can be heard as coil whine
