-Price VS others 6950
-Easy cooling control and OC with Msi Afterburner.
-I didn't found any stickers in the packagelol
This card does not cost much and this is a very good one ! Great purchase with 3 years warranty amazing cooling and great performances !! Got it at 245 $ sent the MIR and gonna get 30 $ on a pre-charged AMEX Card so for 215 $ Best price you can have for one of those.

-Quality build
- Not very quiet like my older card but then again you have more horsepower so what do you expect.
- Cooling is amazing on this card. The reviews prove that. That's very important because along with the cpu, those are the hottest components in your pc.
- Overclocked and once you overclock it yourself it acts more as a 6970
- I will be buying another one for crossfire in the near future and its running my bf3 on ultra settings.

Powerful, quiet and cool

I upgraded to this card from a GTS 250 so you can imagine the huge increase in performance across all games for me. The card idles around 39C and hits 65C on full load. This card is so quiet that I don't even know if the fan noise is coming from the card or from one of the rear fans in my case. I'm running this card on a Gigabyte P55M-UD2 motherboard in a NXZT Gamma case. I was kinda worried at first, not knowing whether or not it would fit but I'm glad it did.

-great price (deal) with PM and MIB
-comparable to GTX 560 448 cores but cheaper
-MSI Twin frozr III cooler matched with their Afterburner software is "bi-winning"
-great overclocking (940mhz/5400mhz)
-nice looks with quiet performace
-lack of back plate / cooler support
The large cooler definitely impedes the strength of the circuit board, it would be benificial if the cooler were bolted to a back plate as this particular cooler seems quite flimsy. I have two MSI 460 gtx's as well with the twin frozr II cooler and even though they are a shorter card, they still feel as if they could use extra mounting support. Other than that, great card, good warranty / support with excellent performace. I don't know if i would crossfire this card, but I would definitely recommend it for a mid-ranged gaming build.

Build quality
Was able to unlock to 1536 SP's
Eyefinity (inputs)
Bought this card to upgrade from a 4870 1GB and my frame rates have doubled with max settings. OC'n was a breeze and I have it at a conservative 880mhz core x 5400mhz QDR mem with 1536 SP's and temps peak at 75c in Furmark. Great card, performance like a 6970. Highly recommended.

- Great build quality and size vs cooling capacity
- Great OC and control software (Afterburner)
- Good factory overclock
- Runs cool
- Can be made very quiet under load (when tamed with Afterburner)
- Dual BIOS with switch
- Power efficient in idle/gaming
- "Only" 1GB (not an issue unless you CF)
- Loud under load at stock fan settings
- Power-hungry under video playback (vs GTX 560 Ti)
- No games bundled
- Sags a bit under the weight of the cooler; would benefit from a backplate
After searching for a quiet 6950 I decided to try this model. At first I was annoyed by the noise under load, but the card runs really cool so you have some thermal headroom to make it either much quieter or unlock/overclock the hell out of it.
The card has a dual BIOS with a switch; the second one does not have unlocked shaders but a quieter fan profile. Honestly there's not that much difference with the "performance" BIOS, and if you value quiet operation you're better off tuning the fan profiles with the Afterburner software. Still it's nice to have a fallback BIOS if you intend to unlock the shaders.

Below are reviews found on other web sites for this product submitted by customers.

Comment: On paper there is a small difference between MSI’s pre-overclocked HD 6950 and AMD’s reference version but it’s doubtful that anyone would notice an in-game difference between the two. However, there’s so much more offered by this custom card that clock speeds hardly seem to matter.
Posted by: Adam_G @12/14/11
Comment: The MSI R6950 Twin Frozr III 1GB/OC is a custom designed, factory overclocked HD 6950 that features MSI's own Twin Frozr III cooler. The card runs cool and is about 5% faster than the reference card.
