- extreme bad performance for the price. (similar cards here are much lower in price)
- Afterburner bugs with voltage dropdowns every restart (Damn went me crazy when I forget to back it up when the game crashed because I forgot to change)
- The MSI coolers are terrible and XXXXL size for NO reason, + get loud at 55 percent!! had gigabyte as well but thats like 5 times more quiet with much smaller coolers thanks to vapor chamber
- was not even cherry picked. (what the hell MSI????)
BTW this was my 2nd Lightning and also my last one, after a while I think the cards are pretty bad for what you pay for or you need to go LN2.
Also was my 2nd card from MSI that overclocked like crap.
Basically I wait for GK110 or something like that...

No need for trolling here , my boy ! The problem is you , not MSI, 2Gb etc etc...
The OC is the thing of luck as well , the famed "silicon lottery ".

Go have a nice time somewhere, give it a break !

What motherboard do you have? Motherboard needs to support it as well.

Also, as far as I know, the 3A BIOS does not support Ultra Fast Boot. Unless MSI released an updated BIOS recently.
You'd have to email MSI and get a modded BIOS.

Here's a thread http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1725316 with some info in it, but as of the end of that thread, still not much to do except get a BIOS from someone, as far as I read of it. If someone feels like emailing MSI to mod the 3A BIOS then we could all share it

You mean they released a new BIOS, but you don't know what it's for? Well, either way, if they do release a new one that supports Ultra Fast Boot, it won't be the unlocked 3A BIOS that we all use. Someone would have to email it to MSI and see if they'll mod it, or wait for someone that knows how to do it.

I would not change from the 3A bios either, that would change what these cards are all about. Something about motherboard compatibility. Why would anyone care about a couple seconds in boot up anyway
