Fake MSI NGTX570?!?!?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Hi! yesterday I bought the MSI N570GTX and today I found the following thread :

http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/331509-15-warning-scam-edition

Is this true? The serial number on my card contains V222 as mentioned in the thread. Should I return my card?

It's not "fake". It's just a cost-cutting measure taken by MSI -- they used the GTX 570 GPU on the GTX 470's PCB. The consequences shouldn't be drastic to performance, but thermals and overclocking might be more adversely affected.

Yes, it will be safe. But if you paid a high price relative to other GTX 570s, you got less for your money. That GTX 570 should have cost less than a normal one. Also you would have to look at GTX 470 waterblocks if you wanted to watercool, or GTX 470-compatible aftermarket air coolers.

Personally, I'd return it if possible and get a "real" reference GTX 570.

If temps were good, and the price was right this would not bother me.
Its just a video card, if it is a little louder big deal. Too many people post around here like they live in a library.

I would say it depends how much you paid for it. If you got it for well below a regular 570, I would probably keep it. If you paid nearly the same, return it and get another one.
