TORX FAN 3.0

A brand-new version of the iconic MSI TORX fan pushes the limits of thermal performance yet further than before. The new trims clearly visible on the traditional fan blade create a focused airflow which in turn is pushed down by the dispersion fan blades for increased static pressure.

Do your research 7/23/2020 6:22:50 PM

Pros: This version of the RX 5700 XT is supposed to work with MSI Afterburner out of the box.

Cons: The card overheated multiple times, going over 100°C many times. I mostly resolved this by replacing the thermal pads, using washer method, and by brute forcing air through the heatsink. That was one of my grievances with MSI. My second grievance is that they have not sent my rebate to me, even after two months of waiting. My final grievance is their tech support. I had a simple issue where the CMOS battery was probably dead and they said that the motherboard was unable to be fixed and I had to send it in. Later on, I found out that the motherboard worked perfectly fine after leaving the motherboard plugged into an ATX power supply, which was plugged into power.

Overall Review: Do your research and pray that MSI fixes their thermal issues and Customer Support department. On top of that, they should include a water block on request because the thermals are terrible for stock performance. I am not suggesting that the AMD RX 5700 XT cards are hot and unable to be cooled; I am just stating that MSI has not done a good job with cooling this card.

Great Performance, Subpar Thermals 7/18/2020 9:06:57 AM

Pros: -The RX 5700 XT is a very good card at a very reasonable price point.
-This card can run 1440p games at 144+ FPS on medium settings on almost every title; esports titles can easily run over 200 FPS.
-The card was stable out of the box and the newer AMD adrenaline drivers for this GPU is stable on every game I have played so far.
-The Radeon software is really easy to use for tuning and overclocking/voltage control.
-The pricing of this MSI card makes it an affordable option among this GPU line.
-The card has a clean look that will fit into most builds with a nice looking backplate.

Cons: Most of the ‘pros’ were about the Radeon RX 5700 XT; the problems come with the disappointing job MSI has done with their cooling solution:
-Thermals are quite embarrassing: out of the box the card was boosted to 2074Mhz at a voltage of 1200mV; the GPU temperatures peaked a little above 90 degrees Celsius. The junction temperatures climb well above 110 degrees and peak around 118 degrees. I currently have an under volt at 1100mV and have dropped temperatures quite significantly to around 84 degrees and a junction temperatures of 105 degrees. These temperatures after the under volt are well within spec for this GPU and are completely safe.
-It goes without saying that I need to keep an aggressive fan curve on this card to keep the temperatures from climbing too high; the noise that this card produces is significant and can easily be heard through my headset (my pc is on my desk, 2 feet away from me). Only with an under volt will this card stay relatively quiet at idle.
-In a few instances I had games crash due to high temperatures, even after I applied the under volt.
-You can not take apart this video card without voiding your manufacturer’s warranty.
-Many of these problems show up because of some unneeded shortcuts; the back plate is not metal and does not passively cool the VRMs, instead it acts as a lid and traps heat inside the card which is reflected in a hot junction temperature. The cooling solution is quite obviously subpar to many other RX 5700 XT cards and does not have a sufficient amount of cooling capacity to effectively cool this GPU.

Overall Review: The RX 5700 XT is the best GPU at this price point. This particular video card, however, is barely acceptable. The compromises this card makes is not worth the lower price and going with a more premium model will be well worth it with this impressive GPU.
The frustrating part is MSI know how to make a good card and in this case, choose not to. The MSI Gaming X is one of the best video cards for this GPU and has significantly better thermal performance; the Mech OC is MSI’s “budget options.” This does not mean it needs to be a bad card with a poor cooling solution.
Going for a card like the MSI Gaming X, Sapphire Pulse/Nitro+, PowerColor Red Dragon/Red Devil may be more worth the extra cost. If availability is an issue, getting this card is not a terrible idea as long as you have good airflow and apply an under volt, or even just getting a water block (alphacool’s RX 5700 XT water block for Sapphire Pulse/MSI Mech/Evoke OC). This will allow you to maximize the potential of this GPU without thermals and noise being a bottleneck.
Overall this video card is disappointing to say the least. The thermal performance is very below average and this issue degrades what would be a great user experience.

Bit unstable, kidna hot, but pretty cheap for the performance 6/20/2020 2:47:25 PM

Pros: Decently fast and cheap like any other RX 5700XT.

Cons: Very loud under load.
Used to crash a lot for me, but the latest drivers 20.5.1 fixed it for me.

Overall Review: I wouldn't really recommend for new pc builders as this is not the most stable of cards, still enjoyed it tho.

Total Garbage 6/20/2020 8:50:23 AM

Pros: Great specs looks kind of cool.

Cons: Constantly crashed despite every known driver update and configuration suggestion on the Internet. After three weeks of working with it, I decided to return this for a Sapphire Pulse (which has been great)

Overall Review: While I’m sure someone who is very committed can get great results out of this card, as a relative amateur I would very much avoid it.

Typical gpu setup, performs well. Exceptionally loud fans though. 6/5/2020 4:55:44 PM

Pros: Clean grey aesthetic

Cons: Loud fans

Overall Review: Decent with headphones, it can be very loud under load (2900 rpm fans tend to do that). If it’s on sale and your a headphone gamer, I’d buy it again.

Great Performance for the price 5/28/2020 8:27:42 PM

Pros: I really like the fans on this card, at idle it sits around 35c and unless it's super demanding under usual load only goes up to 65-70c

Cons: Don't like the lack of a second hdmi port I have three monitors that are all hdmi and a Vive that needs hdmi

Overall Review: Would definitely recommend this to someone as it is really powerful and not super expensive
