    Alienware Graphics Amplifier

    The fact is that has a decent amount of latency thanks to its design and is only a x4 PCI-E connection. The MSI GS30 is by far a better solution with a x16 Connection without the crappy cable.

    GTX 970 - Asus, MSI, Gigabyte, EVGA?

    Currently have a MSI Gaming 4G and I would definitely recommend the card - it is a champ and tears through my games and it is silent when my PC is idle :)

    Your setup should be easy to quickly find a decent setting - which it looks like you settled on 4.4GHz... my AIO water loop is finnicky with its fans as well so I set it to manual and only kick it into high if I want to benchmark something.

    Swapping Cards With The Same Driver?

    it is always best to uninstall/wipe/install drivers when putting in a different card. It shouldn't take long and it should avoid any headaches you may have

    Surprise extra savings is always awesome :D - If you want to see the results for yourself of how it did then go to XtremeSystems and look in the Intel section - It is has a ton test and results in the thread. The MSI BIOSes are really great to work with - they are by far my favorite to use...

    That is definitely a great buy for only $70 - not sure of any better boards you could have bought for that low cost. A friend did some sub-zero testing on one for fun and i was pretty impressed by how the board did.

    Weird MSI Afterburner Bug?

    What I personally would do if I encountered that issue and couldn't get it started back applying settings - I would uninstall the app and drivers / use a cleaner / reinstall app and drivers. That should help you I would think as I have had the issue come up in the past and that is how I fixed it.

    So when is the crying and complaining begin about the lack of a backplate?

    Is an MSI 3 year warranty transferable?

    The only real time you will encounter issues likely with MSI regarding a RMA is when there is physical damage to the part. They are cool with user upgrades, customization, and whatnot so long as it doesn't physically damage the part. That is why I like to use them for my GPUs so that I can...

    MSI Afterburner question

    The memory speed bump is correct since the speed for DDR is actually stated 2x the actual speed (MHz). And the days of setting a constant speed are gone with the new Nvidia cards since they auto clock so offsets are what are used ( I too miss that and it is only extreme OCers with nicely...

    GTX 980 MSI vs EVGA vs ASUS

    I find the reference coolers are only good in certain situations - like cases that have bad airflow. I use the MSI since their Twin Frozr coolers are by far the best on the market and are very quiet, and the new ones will turn off while idle to keep the noise down further.

    MSI GeForce GTX 960 GAMING Video Card Review

    You should try to send an email to the XSplit customer support and tell them of your issue. Hopefully that can help save you some money :)

    GTX 980 MSI vs EVGA vs ASUS

    I am going with the MSI 980s - I decided to upgrade from a 970 to SLI MSI 980s. I am making a decent MATX build so this should be a lot of fun with only taking up a small space.

    MSI GT72 Dominator Pro featuring nVIDIA GTX980M graphics review

    This looks like a hell of a rig, I am on the wall about if I want to go with this over the GS30 since I still game on my sofa a lot.

    On a serious note you could color it in :) correct - two 8pins are all that you will need on air

    Just got my new MSI 290x lightning - Wow!

    For those who want to hop on the 290X Lightning bus Newegg has it at $299.99 MIR but only until Thursday 2/5 - Damn good card for anyone who wants a well built and engineered AMD card or 290X. I have loved mine since last spring :) - If you want to murder someone with a GPU this thing is a...

    some people don't have their panties in a twist about the whole thing so these are good for those who still like that the 970 performs well

    MSI GTX 970 Golden Edition is back in stock at Newegg

    The limited run GTX 970 Golden Edition is back in stock at Newegg, with currently 206 units in stock. For those who want the best cooler available for the 970 this is it - full copper Twin Frozr cooler. The card also has a backplate for those who must have them. Or this is the one to get if...

    MSI Gaming or the Stix DC02

    The MSI GTX 980 will have the better cooler if that matters to you and should OC a bit better indeed. And yes the coil whine can't be attributed to any make and model as it is individual per card basis, pretty much luck of the draw. Different programs can make the cards sing more than others...

    Alienware 13 GPU

    I hope you don't want to use the desktop graphics adapter box with it since it has a lot worse design than the MSI G30 with the use of the cable docking. I have tested out the GS30 at CES and I was very impressed though its on top of the box docking is not up to all potential customer's tastes.

    MSI Gaming 290x 4G fan issue

    Does it do it while it is idle? My 290X Lightning spins down some fans when it is idle, so if it is while idle it may just be that feature

    MSI GeForce GTX 960 GAMING Video Card Review

    Looking at the improvement that this has over the R9 285 I think that this might be the solution for upgrading my HTPC/ living room gaming rig. Though I think that a 970 would be money well spent for like $100 too. Too many choices...

    MSI GS30 Gamingdock

    I played with it a bit at CES and I have to say that I am impressed, even though I will likely get it and not use the dock to game. The docking is very secure and has plenty of nice features and looks to be by far better than the cable solution Alienware has. The rig with a 980 installed sure...

    MSI GTX 970 backplate

    There are more versions with backplates in the works - as seen in my pictures from the MSI suite at CES. I also thing that the black and white version will have backplates as well

    Sli setup overheating

    You can also upgrade the case fans to move more air - and take out the PCI slot covers for air flow out down there - or switch to perforated pci slot covers. You can also secure some other fans blowing over the cards with the help of zipties ;)

    MSI GS60 Ghost/GhostPro Owners' Lounge

    I meet with MSI on Monday @ CES so I will definitely update the thread with anything interesting that I find out - I am eager to test out the GS30 and GT80 - and see what the new GS 60 models will be like - I hope there is still 3K IPS panels along with 4Ks

    MSI GS60 Ghost/GhostPro Owners' Lounge

    I wanted the GS60 for the longest time, but I decided to wait for the GS30 that will soon be out - a very capable 13" notebook. It will have a graphics card dock but I don't want it for that because I am focused on the mobility aspect of a slim 13" notebook. I can't wait to try it out next...

    Time for a GTX970 but which one?

    I went with the MSI GAMING GTX 970 for the superior cooler and the fact that everyone was loving them lol. The part I like is that the fans turn off when it is idle and it makes the computer so much quiter than the previous 290X Lightning that I had in there :) Going to try and move it to a...

    MSI GeForce GTX 970 Gaming 4GB

    I am loving mine :) - I am going to move it into my new MATX build in a BitFenix Prodigy M and probably get a second for SLI. I do love the efficiency of these new cards and that if saves money on the PSU purchase :)

    Talk me out of buying a 290x Lightning

    Yeah I am a big fan of the Nvidia Control Panel as well and that Is the main thing that I miss. I wish AMD could get their app into a place that would rival the Nvidia offering.

    MSI X99S GAMING 9 ACK for $349

    I would think that if you do buy that it may get cancelled because that is likely a mis-priced item, would bet it is supposed to be $449. But if you can risk some of your money being tied up for a bit it could be worth a chance lol

    Talk me out of buying a 290x Lightning

    As an owner of a 290X Lightning I can't say a bad thing about it lol... I love mine and will likely still hold onto it when I move up to a 980 on that rig

    MSI R9 290X Lightning - $319 AR + Free games and FS

    For the best single-gpu AMD card available $320 is a great price - I have one in my system now and the construction is top notch and it is as solid as a brick literally. The card can be OCed pretty damn high as well :)

    Nvidia 980/970 Availability Thread

    MSI's upcoming 970 Gold edition looks to be a killer option as it looks like it does indeed have a full copper Twin Frozr heatsink :) Definitely will sell well being a 970 but I really want to see that cooler compared to the standard one :)
