Just got this MSI GTX260 Lightning Black Edition and I can say MSI did a good job on this one starting from the box until to the unit itself  :biggthumbsup:



Let’s get started shall we and open up the box…



There it is the GTX260 Lightning with AirForce Panel and underneath it is some kind of a drawer. Once you pull it out you will find the accessories, driver software cd, manual, DVI & HDMI adapter and cables for connecting the AirForce Panel to your mobo.




As you can see it is using a dual fan heatpipe cooling solution called Twin Frozr and makes the video card cool down very well even at high overclock speeds. On the rear side of the video card there are the HDMI, VGA & DVI Ports.



More on the AirForce Panel, here is an overview on what it can do.



Below are the values you can do with the AirForce

Quote
GPU Core
1.0700V
1.0825V
1.0950V
1.1075V
1.1200V

Mem Core
1.8500V
1.8600V
1.8700V
1.8800V
1.9000V

Core
655
660
665
670
673
676
680

Memory
1000
1010
1020
1030
1040
1050

Shader
1404
1440
1458



Panel in working mode and by the way  it is touch sensitive. Selecting Lightning on the panel will bring you up the MSI windows software showing all the specs from the settings you have made. I hope MSI also included fan controls on the panel

Let us now test this baby for benchies.

This is easily missed among all the review text;

Resurrecting a thread that was started over 3 years ago of a product review is not the right place to request assistance. Recommend to open a new thread in the VGA Section of the forum.

Thanks Froggy for already pointing out. I removed all the useless quoting from the hijacking post.

r44t_pl,

hijacking and resurrecting other topics is not allowed never do this again. >>Please read and comply with the Forum Rules.<<

With your own issue open an own topic. This is quite obviously a two year old review and not an "ask anything related to this vga" thread. To prevent further hijacking posts in this thread:
