    Default MY little msi gtx 970 gaming review

    A few days ago i bought the msi gtx 970 gaming card, The reason why i bought the msi is?

    1 - like the msi colors
    2 - my other msi cards i had before where a great cards.
    3 - read some good reviews on them
    4 - AND this was the only 1 in stock.

    The card comes in a nice box with a nice mouse pad with it.







    Oke now it was the time to plug it in and do some tests.

    The system i used for this is

    i7 2600k
    asus maximus iv gene-z/gen3
    16gb memory 1600mhz
    Xfx 750w pro psu

    the first test that i did was firestrike with the cpu at 4.4ghz And the card at stock.





    After that i tryed to see what it would do in overclock but because it was late i diddent see wat the max was, but just a quick overclock.

    These are the settings that is set in msi afterburner.


    voltage +75
    powerlimit max +110
    coreclock +160
    memory clock +300
    fanspeed auto

    And i set the cpu to 4.5ghz and run firestrike again.




    after a bit of playing around with the card and switching to 3d mark 11, because firestrike takes for ever if you can not run it with out demo included. I came to my 3d mark 11 stable overclock.
    the settings i did in msi afterburner are

    voltage +87(max)
    power limit +110(max)
    core clock +180 (core clock of 1294mhz)
    memory clock +500 (memory clock of 2000mhz)
    fan speed manual set to 70% AND yes still very, very Quit.




    Detailed scores




    3DMark Score

    14697


    Graphics Score

    17833


    Physics Score

    9817


    Combined Score

    9345


    Graphics Test 1

    82.31 fps


    Graphics Test 2

    85.15 fps


    Graphics Test 3

    111.83 fps


    Graphics Test 4

    53.32 fps


    Physics Test

    31.17 fps


    Combined Test

    43.47 fps


    So i hope i maybe could help somebody who is still deciding on witch gtx 970 to buy.
    Msi would be a great choice.

    The colors on this card are a perfect match for my MSI Z87 Gaming G45 Motherboard. Considering the numbers that you're posting in benchmarks in a few threads, Maybe these are what I'll be buying to use on it.
    NVIDIA is seriously whacking AMD's cool with these two new offerings (GTX-970 & GTX-980) at such low price points. Their performance is outstanding for the money spent.

    The colors look great, also when you have a window, the letters msi are shinning bright

    NVIDIA Impresses
    NVIDIA is definitely on the upside right now. They just introduced two good cards at a great price point, and that has to hurt AMD's plans ahead of the next launch that they're planning.
    If AMD has any wiggle room for lower prices in the future, they should use that to try to counter Team Green's onslaught. AMD's offerings are plenty fast enough for most of us if the prices are looking good. I love my pair of R9-280X OC cards in Crossfire.
    Graphics processors seem to be advancing at a rate that games can’t keep up with. This translates to: “we don’t need the best that there is available, to play modern games”.
    SLI and Crossfire technology only make it easier to stay ~in the game~ at a reduced cost. These levels of performance at lower prices are ~essential~ for some of us that cannot afford to buy new GPUs all of the time. We can still play games at great frame rates with a lot of 'Eye-Candy' turned on.

    The thought of paying $1,000.00 to $1,500.00 to even $2,000.00 for a video card is shocking to me. I choke at the $500.00 price point to tell the truth. So those wazoo Titans, and Dual GPU AMD cards are just a little unreal to me and I don't even consider them. (even when I have a little cash flow)

    But now we have more than decent GPUs at decent prices from NVIDIA, and maybe soon from AMD too,...............
    It’s a good time to be a gamer.

    Oke some more updates about this card.
    Like i read on some sites have a few people problems with the msi card, but when people have problems the talk about it, if there are no problems then there is no need to talk.
    I like mine very muchand have no problems with fans stopping, spinning at 100% or coil wine.
    i rune a couple of test, with fan control from msi afterburner, and i tried the gaming app, all works fine.here are some updated benchmark scores.



    not the max overclock, but my 24/7 overclock used in unigine valley.



    In metro 2033 from steam the card was at stock speed and my 2600k at 4.2ghz

    My max overclock core and memory combined in fire strike



    As you can see the graphics score is 13429 points, compare that to 2 x msi gtx power edition at stock, the scored 14460 points so this card is almost as fast as 2 of the gtx 670 cards, very impressive.
