I only had MSI GPU's so far and no problems at all.. The only downside is that warranty is void if removed the cooler but that's it.

They all are very good overclockers, quiet and good looking and mostly cheaper than the other cards.. So, why is MSI crap in your opinion?

failure rate is pretty high. personal preference no offense.

Well, could it be user error too? I mean, MSI uses one of the best components out there and has actually one of the lowest failure rate.
I never had an MSI GPU that failed on me to be honest.

I personally never buy Asus GPU's because i don't like their aesthetics and they usually clock worse than the competition and are louder than MSI. RMA is also a nightmare with Asus, i do have to admit that i never had to deal with MSI RMA so they might be worse but can also be better lol

Personal preference is MSI.

user error? nah! MSI is high failure rate u can google. MSI 1070/1080 is good & quiet but not others.

literally, i never buy MSI before but so far what i saw from my surrounding & exp MSI mobo is crap + 970/980 too

if i got the money to buy 1080/1070 i might get MSI due to the cooling design & large heat-sink.

I've used their R9 270X and it was a disaster. Really bad OC, bad quality components and it "died" just after warranty expired. I have to underclock it now to use it. It didn't have voltage control options or other stuff and the quality of the heatsink and VRM cooling is the worst I've ever seen, especially since this is a 180W card. Fan quality is pretty bad, the bearings die after a year and you can hear all kind of sounds comming from it.

Another thing is that RX480 in my country can be found in 2 versions right now, Asus and PowerColor, the Asus one is 43.000RSD which is 350EUR and the PC one is 34.000RSD / ~290EUR, in all shops. They're all refference, I wonder why the price difference. And by the way, I can't find any reviews of the PowerColor version of the RX480.

As for the comment(s) about MSI. I guess you should have stated that was your personal experience(in your original post), not as a overall statement about MSI. It's like saying the you had trouble with a Chevy/Ford, and that none of their products are good. I know you that you stated in a later posts that it was a personal issue. No harm, no foul though. wink.gif

As for myself and MSI. I had to RMA my motherboard about 6 months ago, and the process was painless. I think it took less than a week(holidays were in there), and I got a replacement board back. I have two MSI GPU's and they have worked flawless for me. They are different PCB versions and I was able to apply my modded bios from the original card with any issues at all. The only issue was that the second card didn't have as high as ASIC and no Samsung Vram. So, it doesn't OC as well.

Anyway, it seems that the latest driver performs about as well as the previous ones, so again, it's a personal choice on to whether or not to install them. I am going to leave them on and do some gaming later. I doubt that I will see any impact on performance.
