However simplicity aside, if you are honestly thinking about getting this card please bare in mind you will need to put up with a crap load of annoyances.
To start. youl be dealing with these issues straight out the box
- Capacitor Coil Whine
- Worrying Heat Issues unless having a custom fan curve.
- Cards Aorus software & Passive fan mode
- Cards backplate and shroud is hard plastic.
( Coil Whine )
- I don't understand how this came to be. me and a buddy of mine ordered the card within a 1 day period of each other and both got it same day. yet we have the exact same issues. whats more troubling is that you will have idle coil whine unless the shroud is fixated into a certain position, applying pressure id assume to the board with the capacitors. which is exactly what me and my mate have done. but the coil whine is pretty bad in games. its 2019 and things are getting so small and compact that this shouldn't start being a norm. infact this issue should have been resolved years and years ago. i sincerely hope you don't plan on overclocking this card cause oh boy the coil whine gets worse.
( Heat Issues + Fan Configuration )
- Im sorry to report but the aorus software as well as the hard coded passive fan mode AND active fan modes are completly garbage. stock wise you will be looking at 48c average temp with the fans not spinning and only kicking on at 50c. at which point you'l notice an unbearably loud vibration and sound repeating for a split second and then again as you notice the RPM dropping down to idld. the card cant maintain a decent low RPM without it causing fans to cycle to the default hard coded lowest speed which is 40% [1114RPM]. at first manually setting 36% done just fine at an average [748RPM] but then the vibration issue starting showing up again and upon inspection its doing the same as before. cycling up to a higher RPM trying to maintain the speed but it cant. that was about 5 days into owning the card. its now been holding steady at 40%. since!
The card cant maintain good heat dissipation due to horrible, clearly manufacturing issues! stock fan config i was seeing around 83c on metro exodus on extreme. with my custom fan curve i see an average of 76c with peaks at 79c for max recorded temp. and an idle low in the 30's
( Aorus software & Passive fan mode )
- To put simply... its utter crap. UI is clunky and god awful to read. i explain above why the passive fan mode sux but the active fan mode is just as worse. its exactly the same as passive mode except it keeps trying to ramp up the cards fan speed every time meaning the vibration and rattling sound occurs consistently and frequently.
9/08/19 = software still crap. but if you take the time to go through the hellishish nightmare you won't need to worry about having msi constantly running. Still horrible none the less.
( Cards backplate and shroud is hard plastic. )
- Nothing particularly wrong with a hard plastic shroud but a plastic backplate is a no go. will have no structural support to the card over long periods of time. as its more prone to bending. and considering the backplate being plastic has no difference in heat dissipation. its worrying to know the longevity of the card.
if you really want the card you can pray to the RNG god in hopes you get a tip top perfect item of the product line. but youl still be prone to the things mentioned above. not to mention possibly investing in a GPU support bracket.
coil whine is not as bad as it once was but its certainly still there. especially for extremely demanding games. everything elalse still holds accurate. tho on the note of the shroud. I just pushed to end of it (furthered from the IO ports) in towards the board. and something clicked and the idle coil whine issue went away. my guess was might not have fully been assembled.
So my experience and opinion:
- The GPU is big but slim, it fits just fine into my mini-ITX BitFenix Prodigy. It looks sleek and feels like a quality product.
- It is extremely quiet (I mean, quiet quiet, the fans don't even spin unless it's under load)
- Performance is spot on and it has run everything I tested so far, paired with a 144hz 1440p monitor. Don't expect to get 144fps when you max out the settings and run at 1440p, but I get well over 100 without issues and even more with some settings tweaking.
I don't think anything else is relevant. It looks cool, it runs cool, it performs well and the price (although relative to each person's situation) is sensible for what you get.
As you can see from the specs it has a dual fan layout allowing a better cooling and less noise.
It cames with 4 display ports and 1 HDMI port.
Taking a look at the performance it can say that playing at 144p ( I have a Ryzen 5 3600 16gb of ram, MSI Carbon pro ac and 500gb nvme) I managed to reach 60fps ( high/ultra settings)

Carte un petit peu bruyante mais sans plus.
La carte mets ses ventilateurs en arret lorsque la température passe à 50° et moins.
En forte activité, celle ci monte jusqu'à 71/72°.
While it does provide really good frame rates for games (I was getting around 140fps in Battlefield V High Settings and 180fps in Forza Horizon 4 Medium Settings), the card would reach temperatures of 85 degrees celsius and if the fan speed would exceed 80%, it would start to cause very annoying vibrations which I could feel through my desk, as well as making a very high pitched buzzing sound (which is not coil whine). When I discovered these issues with the first card I purchased, I ordered a replacement card and this had the exact same issues. Buy a different RTX 2060.
