MSI GTX 970 Gaming poor quality!
« on: 09-November-14, 16:03:15 »

VRM temperatures of MSI GTX 970 Gaming after 30 mins of Crysis

VRM 98º  :biggthumbsdown:



6 phases =  OnSemi NCP81174 = Fake
Got a reply from MSI:

My query:
'Hi, I'm interested in buying one of these cards, but I have a concern that may put me off. Your specification says the card has 6 power phases for core Voltage. However the Buck-controller on the card (OnSemi NCP81174) is for of 4 phases max. Have you connected the phases in 3-phase logic, or am I missing something here? Hope you can shed light on this subject. I'm not the only one wondering =)

Best Regards
Olli Turunen'

Regarding your concern,Hi,this card has 6 power phases for the core voltage.It is right that the buck-controller for onsemiNCP81174.But i can not to tell you anymore about how to design 6 power phases by this IC. Because it is company secrets.

Thanks for your cooperation in advance!

I do not deny that the board is affected by all sort of issues... BUT please remember that on a forum you hear just from the unlucky customers.

I got my board one month ago and fortunately (so far) I have no issues and it's undoubtedly the best GPU I've ever had to date.

@OP

This is users to users forum and we can't do anything with it.

All you can do is RMA the card.

Copied=GPU power control is handled by an ON-Semi conductor NCP81174 4-phase controller (located at the back PCB) operating in 3-phase interleaved mode with six dual-channel Sinopower SM7320 doubled with drivers at the back.

Looks like a 6+2 design! Why would you think MSI lie about their products? the only thing I want a answer about is the fan problem.

This is not correct!The correct would be to use a controller of 6 phases! MSI deceived all buyers!

She has the worst power supply system! The controller of phase, this overloaded and super warming up!

MSI is an excellent manufacturer of VGA, but unfortunately this new series he did :censored: ! New revision will come out!

Enough of bashing MSI. You might have got a bad sample, that's it.

>>Please read and comply with the Forum Rules.<<

>>How to contact MSI.<<
Either contact them and make a complaint there (not here) or just return the card.
