Default MSI GTX 460 Cyclone 768MB OC Review Comment Thead

Another day, another GTX 460 review. This time we take a look at MSI's overclocked, custom cooled Cyclone OC edition. Not only does this GTX 460 have one of the largest heatsinks we have seen in a while but it also retails for a mere $10 more than the reference version. Could this be a match made in heaven?

Pretty nice. I see in the Pros that RMA stay within canada, do they have a better RMA service now or it still the same crap?? Because the card seems a pretty good performer. Nice review once more!

Great review as always SKY!
Not sure about this card though. It seems the EVGA consistently outperforms it until overclocking the card. That and the greatsupport from them would sway me that way over the Msi card. The results were impressive nonetheless.

Price drop coming on this card will bring it in line with reference card pricing... Give it about 1 week to take effect...

Reading this, I have no regrets about purchasing my 5830. I was scared for a minute.
