What happened to MSI?

They used to be great value cards up until the Maxwell & Pascal cards landed, then they started asking crazy money for their stuff, Asus level rip off pricing.
Asus makes top of the line products. You should expect to pay top dollar for them. In all my years of messing around with PCs I've always had great experience with Asus stuff. To be honest though, I've only had EVGA video cards fail on me and a IBM Deathstar hard drive :D

I always like that MSI's TwinFrozr VI design.
Cool and quiet!
I uses to think it was quiet until i got the gigabyte 3 fan system. My MSI card always ran at max temp so wasnt really happy about that.

Well I never hear the GPU fans spinning of my MSI card, they spin around 70% max I think since it never gets too hot, just over 60s max.
My case is noise insulated though but the thing I do hear is the 140mm bottom intake fan.

If your MSI GTX1xxx Gaming card got so hot there was something wrong with it or you didn't have any airflow in your case,
as I said my card only gets just over 60s sduring summer with 27 degrees C ambient temp with AB custom fancurve.

Some work better for others, however unfortunately for me the MSI did not cool as good as the Gigabyte. With the new card max temp is 72C and that's hours after gaming BF1. Sure my room may not bad a cool and sure the air flow may not be a good as others however I saw a massive difference. If i set my MSI to 92 as max temp it would hit max temp. For me I just found the gigabyte 3 fan seems to be much better. It was a shame as I did like the MSI.

@GreiverBlade @eidairaman1 this sounds odd to me, all GTX1xxx cards with this MSI twinfrozr cooler run very cool as far as I know,
even more so when using a custom fan profile with afterburner, sounds more like he bought a FE version....
