I love their coolers. I had one on a GTX 260 and it wouldn't go over 55C with the max voltage too.

The Twin Frozr II models are generally awesome (Although newer models are a bit loud for my taste, the heatsink design is still solid). I LOVED my TFII GTX470 - It included an unified memory/circuitry heatsink, too. MSi has (From my experience) a painless warranty process. I had no problem getting my 470 repaired when a fan bearing went bad. It's silly to bash the manufacturer in this case - All AIB partners let a few defective cards out into the wild (I will not jump to a conclusion for or against PEBKAC at this time).

It is possible that your GPU, PCB, or some other circuitry was damaged during removal of the stock heatsink, removal/replacement of TIM, or installation of the AXP.

The type of TIM you're using may impact the success of a reapplication or heatsink swap - I would avoid using diamond based compounds (Like IC Diamond 7), particularly on AMD/ATi cards, as they may scratch the GPU IHS. From my experience, IC Diamond sometimes stains/scratches surfaces.

And of course throw all of your AS5 in the garbage, because conductive TIMs with cure times are so 1999

I only use MX-4 and I was gentle as possible. Anyways I am more mad at the GPU than the company now.

Um... bro seriously? How the hell does changing a heat sink break something when you take off the stock carefully and put the aftermarket on it carefully as if it would blow up with the slightest knock. e-e

The stock MSI works just like the Accellero Xtreme Plus and blows air down onto the VRMs and heat memory. Where the TF2 heat sink failed was there was no cooling on the VRMs or memory. So as such, your conclusion baseless.


In that kind of situation I would laugh because I knew I was pushing the card. Over the winter I ran my 5770s at 1100/1400 and my Q6600 at 4.2Ghz in a suicide run half expecting things to blow up, but was pleasently surprised when they didn't, now get off my back.

Nah, it's too easy to ride you and get you all upset. You're backed into a corner trying to defend yourself against a flurry of people pointing their finger saying it was your fault, and you're still trying to say it had nothing to do with what you did and you were perfect and it was just the cards fault.

Man up, you made a mistake. Stop crying that it's MSI's fault. Stop crying that it was the cards fault.

Did you even read the rest of the thread? Look at the posts I made before. Now leave.

I am not blaming MSI anymore, and more the card, and a tad myself, though I took my time (took abotu 2 hours to put the heat sinks on) so I am not even sure what I did, if anything. From my stand point the card was at fault, at least defective, and I pushed it over the edge when it was boarderline.

Okay, so I've read a Shiz-ton of statements, and here is what I have to say for both sides:

The people who don't want to blame MSI:

Yes, The Twin Frozer I/I/III Cards are good cards because of heat dissipation, and how much heat it doesnt put out. But, MSI In general Is known to use "Jank" memory and VRM design. I'm trying to get this board out of my system as we know it. So, I say don't blame him, especially since He only Overclocked the Core at that.

To the people who agree that MSI Sucks:

I'm right there with ya.

Thank you. Yes, the TF2 is a good card, but I also don't want to take full responsiblity as I was as careful as I could have possibly been to NOT cause this card to break. To me there are 2 things that could have gone wrong:
Card was defective to begin with
I did something (however unlikely)
