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.

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.
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.

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.

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.
