This is the card
Used lovingly by me for about a year and a half. Not oc'd. Stock TIM replaced with AS5. Purchased 12/08. Under warranty until 12/11.
Well shit. This sucks. I generally go DFI for my builds, and builds for friends as well. While initial setup may be a bit more of a pain in the ass, once you tinker in the BIOS some, their boards are generally a really stable platform.
Now WTF am I supposed to buy? Asus' high end is all that...
Major props. As en employee, when I hear my CEO say he's getting involved in an RMA I was the point of contact for, I start getting worried...lol
On that note, CEO ventures onto forum? Can't say I've ever seen that from a video card mfg.
If you need a new RMA Supervisor sherkelman, I'm in...
What should I expect from MSI's RMA process? Fast, slow, somewhere in between? If they offer me a GTX 260 as a replacement, should I accept? Anyone who has info or experience with their RMA process, I'd appreciate it if you chimed in.
I can't get it installed. This wasn't a vlited install.
What happens is everything goes normally for steps 1 and 2. When it goes to boot back into Windows after step 2, I get a reboot loop. Booting into safe mode allows step 3 to continue, but rolls back after completion (due to being in safe...
I like it well enough. GPU temps peak at about 75-76C. Memory is a few C higher than that @ full load (read: gaming, not folding). Performance is as expected, which is to say, pretty damn nice.
I just use the auto fan profile, and it works well enough. I can't really hear it over this...
Get this...please...I'm dying to see someone review it
If you don't like it, I'd be willing to trade you my MSI with the 4 heatpipe HSF :)
Coming from someone who owns the MSI....get the HIS with the ramsinks. The GPU cooling itself, will be competitive, within a few degrees C....check this out though on the MSI
See that 90C temp? That's what happens when you don't have any cooling on the memory, other than the GPU fan. I...
They are trying to collect from the UPS account holder, not from you personally. UPS is under the impression that you are affiliated with that company, which is incorrect. You can pretty much safely ignore that, if you do not in fact, have a UPS account. All they have is your address and the...
Yeah I typo'd the title. It basically IS an E8400 for all intents and purposes.
It's a nice stepping. Q807 A091. Check the OC database in the Processor forum for info on that. I'm in there. I've gotten this to boot @ 4.4, but couldn't keep the temps under control with air.
It's been doing 4.2 @ 1.328v for about 7-8 months. Willing to trade for a S775 quad, that will do 3.2-3.6. Just traded the opposite way a while back, but have begun doing some video editing, so I basically need the quad for Premiere CS4 work.
PM me with offers please.
92C on the memory, I believe is what that sensor is related to.
It would make sense, as the card I have, has no direct cooling on the memory...
I'll need to buy some sinks for the RAM on this guy I think.
Spend the extra $30
You'll need to move to AM2/LGA 1366 shortly however, as you'll be feeling those low framerates in newer titles. Source engine stuff, etc. Probably won't run bad at all. Full DX10 titles...probably not so good.
