Did i just kill my GTX460?update rma - Page 4

post #31 of 36
Thread Starter 
Got good news from my hardware shop,the card is currently heading back to the shop.
I asked them if they repaired or replaced the card,and they said it has been replaced (new serialnr)
So after about a month everything turns out fine.

Note to myself;
-no furmark runs anymore
-get even better cooling then MSI has provided (Accelero XTREME Plus yea?)

Happend with my old 550w psu. Ran occt with 1.087v and after 5 min my psu blew up. Luckily the card survived. I learned the hard way that even if your psu can handle 1 card, dont go crazy on volts :S.

It doesn't. I use it and have for years. Here are a few feedbacks from MSI and newegg.com You pick anything with the MSI name on it and look in the feedback. You will find and alarming high rate of **failure**. There is 20 pages of this. This is just one video card.
Look deeper into the MSI name. Look for yourself! Still dont believe me. Search this forum alone.
Then search the ati forum.

It does not matter if its a motherboard, or a video cards. They are bad.
You get the same complaints on asus,gigabyte,evga,asrock,sapophire, etc,etc as well.

it's probably from testing before they were packaged to make sure they run at specified spec without problem
