*Update - I was able to acquire 2 more cards and they are awesome. Don't pay 2k. I found better deals
*Update - 3rd card failed after 2 months. I wouldn't buy MSI
One month to the day I get this repaired card back from Amazon/MSI it stops posting altogether. Im getting a full refund and a different card. I added a screenshot of what HWInfo now shows. It only displays 1024x768 resolution now and after doing the same extensive debugging procedure I did before (posted below) all I had left to try was my 1080 Ti. Which of course, works just fine. Props to the amazon rep who helped with the refund, they didn't mind its not coming in the original packaging MSI kept with the original RMA. I did not overclock the card this time, complete factory settings. Even added 2 corsair ML140 fans for intake blowing directly into the card. Very disappointed in this card so far.
* Attached is a video of some artifacting I experienced 5 days after receiving the card playing Destiny 2. This ended up being related to those other 2080 ti cards failing within a couple weeks that Nvidia is trying to address. This is my card BEFORE RMA.
* Screen shot of HWinfo64 showing min/max/average values for the 2080 ti ventus oc after 5 hours of playing Destiny 2 at 144Hz/1440p/Ultra. No overclock on the card and in a hot case (Corsair 280X). This is my card AFTER RMA
*Picture of bent PCIe mounting bracket AFTER RMA.
First let me start with the good things;
- This card is quiet with very little coil whine. Coming from a 1080 Ti Gigabyte Aorus. This card is virtually silent.
- No RGB (might be a negative for you).
- Thermals aren't great. I hit a max of 82C after 5 hrs of gaming but again, even with the fans at 90% its not that bad imo.
- 1440p/144fps/Ultra. And a solid 144fps at that
- Not as power hungry as I would have thought. 277.27W max with 218W average under load.
The bad (and some of this is my fault)
- A couple days into owning the card I began to experience small artifacting. Spots of colors when I look at a specific area in a game. It would go after I move to a new area. I did have a small overclock, Destiny 2 crashes with any card I have with my normal overclock.So I had +50MHz Core/+100MHz Memory/ 111% Power with a stock fan profile. Nothing fancy.
- As it got progressively worst I removed my overclock. Used DDU to remove driver and installed a fresh one. Removed overclock on my cpu and any bios tweaks I had. Ran my rig as stock as possible. No dice. Visual inspection of the pcb and a closer look with a digital microscope, no anomaly. Reflashed the bios.. Turned off g-sync. Booted into a usb thumb drive of linux. Things got worst. Kept getting worst.
-Day 5 is when it got to the point where any game would crash after 1 minute. The video I attached is about as much use I could get before a crash. I then decided to RMA.
--RMA Experience through Amazon--
- I decided to RMA through Amazon. Amazon suggests that you ship everything back in the original packaging, which I did. Had I gone through MSI exclusively, I would have been told I would not get any of the packaging back. This kills resale value. I cant fault MSI for this. Amazon should have specified the policy but I should have known to check MSI's policy.
- I had to contact Amazon customer service to find out they received my card. When you spend over $1000 on a card you have to RMA, it would be nice if they could mention they have it. I did have tracking and I only contacted customer service a couple weeks after the ups tracking link indicated they received it. No notification from amazon or MSI, just the standalone tracking number from ups. Not an issue if it were something cheaper but that’s half way to a mortgage payment were talking about.
- MSI ends up getting the card via Amazon. I get the card back 12/21/18 after sending it in 11/26. Plain cardboard box with some packing foam. Interestingly enough its the EXACT same card. Return slip had a blank field under "work done". PCIe support bracket is slightly bent. Not sure if that was shipping or MSI. I get my first email from MSI 12/27 saying they have shipped the card back to me. They let me know they shipped the card 6 days after I receive the card.
- Some of the bad is my fault. There is room for improvement with Amazon's communication. MSI did okay, I would have been in a better situation if I bothered to read their policy. The lack of email communication from them is a little less excusable.
-Nvidia really should have had a ready product at this price point.
- Cant say this card is much of an overclocker and to be honest im afraid to oc the card again. If MSI told me how they fixed the card or why it failed I would be more inclined to do so. Maybe a low level bios fix. I havent opened up the card since I got it back but I will at some point.
4/5 stars, deducting 1 star just for the experience of it all. It took 3 companies and a dumb decision by me to make this card bad on the first go. Right now this card is great, even stock speeds. I am happy with it and provided it works in a week or a month or this time next year I will continue to be stoked. I will be updating if this happens again and likely deducting some stars.
