It is the twin froser n250gts 1g. It will lock up at stock mem speeds i haft to underclock the memory to make it stable.
Stock the core was 738 and mem was 1100. I have tried everything but with the mem speeds at stock 1100 it will lock up in games after 5min or rendering video. I used riva tuner to underclock the mem to 1000 and it runs perfect. But i should not haft to underclock a card to make it run. It should run st stock advertised speeds.
What can MSi do to fix the problem. My issue is this is my main work pc with no on board graphics so it is not worth it to send the card off and have my computer down for 2-3 weeks just to get a similar card back with a little faster mem. Can they send me a new card with a UPS call tag to send the old one back so i will not have my computer down.
PS. This is the first MSI card i have purchased and hope this is not a trend. MY email is the best way to reach me vwjosh53 (at) aol.com. Thank you for your help.
no offense but I always wondered why people don't try the support phone numbers?http://www.msi.com/about/contact-us/
Second I've been an avid EVGA fan for a while now, why should I switch to MSI from EVGA?
