MSI 560 TI question

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I'm wanting to get an MSI twin frozer 560 TI, i notice there are 2 different versions there is an OC and a Stock.

Now would the OC overclock better then just the stock version, like is it a better binned chip or are they both going to OC to near enough the same levels.

Seen quite a few instances where people have bought a factory OC 560TI and it hasnt even been stable, is the factory OC on these cards just mainly a marketing gimmick?

It is similar to EVGA stock and their SC card.
Buy the stock and OC it yourself.

well they should be stable with factory overclock. as for stock, its just random from what i know

I think you'll find most companies will only sell the more overclockable chips as Factory clocked editions, otherwise they would most likely end up with a lot of stability issues and consequently a lot of returns.. not all chips are created equal unfortunately.

Well, first off, they sell so many of these cards, especially with the sales/MIR/game bundles ,that it's kinda normal to hear about more defects...

The MSI 570 is having issues with artifacting on several OCed cards...for the 560Ti it's a less of an issue...

My two TFII 560Ti are great, no issues...so your mileage may vary...if it artifacts, RMA!!!

To be honest, around here in Canada, you'll find mostly the OC version of the card.
Basically, because the market is flooded with those OCed ones...the price of the OC model is cheaper than the regular...USUALLY....

IF you get a better deal on a regular card, go for it...if not, why not going for the OC variant?

I'd say, if you can, go for the HAWK version of the MSI 560TI...it's the best card...and it comes with the brace that keeps the card rigid...plus a better OC and a better Twinfrozr III cooler (twinfrozr II is already great)

Yeh i forgot to mention i live in the UK, we cant get the hawk edition. frown.gif and the OC version is more expensive here then the stock, but i guess i will just buy the OC version and hope i can get it too 1000 mhz.

Never had much luck with Overclocking GPU's in the past so i would prefer not to risk it with an already stock version.

What's your reasoning for wanting the core at 1ghz ? The TFII/OC's clock speed is fine where it's at, granted, the Hawk and the EVGA superclocked one can push almost 570 performance, Hawk has a better chance of doing it.

Well 950 would be a good bet, i dunno i just like getting a nice overclock.. 1ghz would be awsome if im lucky.

My take on this:

If you're planning on OCing your card even before you bought it, buy something better....you seem to be craving for more more power...if you're short on cash, wait a little longer.

Imagine if you get a bad overclocker??? You'd be disapointed isnt' it?
