You could do a lot of things to make it work properly. The point is you shouldn't need to do any of it, it's a $1600 LN2 card and it should be ready to go out of the box minus the pot. If I could afford LN2 right now I'd simply support one of the AIBs that made theirs properly.

The whole thing is a big joke for the price, useless for LN2 without an unlimited BIOS (though it's built for it) and if you put it under water you'd need to tear everything down to update the driver.


The cards aren't exactly rare, they're undesirable since they cost so much but don't really offer any thing cheaper cards don't have. I'd price it $100-$50 less than list price or just put it on eBay.

As i already told you, you cant blame them, they really think it doesnt exist, they dont have it in their "database". Its engineering bios... i assume only few people from MSI know about it.

I recommend buying Galax OC Lab card if u want XOC without hassle. Lightning only if u have some LN2 scores to prove your competency and contacts on bigger overclockers.

With latest ln2 bios from MSI, power limit is 400w. Real issue is voltage control that should allow manual settings but MSI is not giving that bios/afterbuner to normal customers.


I moved from basic Gigabyte card to this and with it's current issues it's worse than Gigabyte.


Sorry to ruin your business xHoLy.

Just return it to store if possible.
