Been pretty happy with my MSI cards to date (all reference design mind you) but I did have an issue with my first 570 where it appeared to be under-volted as it worked 100% with a slight under-clock but crashed in 2 of my higher end games at the factory OC. Still, RMA process is pretty good with MSI, they don't screw with you like some brands might.

Back in the old Pentium 3 days I had no end of problems with MSI motherboards dying and haven't used them since.

I killed a twin frozr GTX 275, the fan closest to the bracket died on me 2 times, then I sold the 3rd replacement card, had enough. 100% kills twin frozr's, but that's how I roll so they best up there game. I can tell you every EVGA card I have owned chugged through 100% fan for years.

own two 460 cyclone cards and two 570 reference cards. I did have to RMA one 570 but IMO there are good. I really like that any RMA to MSI will not have to cross the border!

From looking at the RMA experience page, I'd have to say that any worries of developing a problem are put to rest by the outstanding service.

I really like my P67-G43 and I've had no problems with my 560ti Frozr II. I have a 50% fan speed cap though. No folding.

This is my experience as well. I fixed a lot of machines, but have never purchased MSI before.

Lately I'm tempted to try something of MSI out....

... but will I regret it?

I had an MSI motherboard a long time ago with no issue. I now have one of their motherboards in my parents computer and a cyclone gtx 460 in my own rig with zero issues. In fact I love the cyclone cooler on the 460.

Maybe it is an issue with the twinfrozer cooler?
