Experience: 6 Months
Great card, Works well with my Livestreaming, Works well for Gaming, I couldn't recommend a better card Price wise and Performance wise, The APM is a pretty neat feature, for those worried about power consumption.
The thermal paste that had come on mine was awful, had to reseat It due to its idle temp of 60c with 2 1920x1080 monitors and running any type of game it would spike up to 80~98
4/5 for the Thermal paste

Otherwise a fantastic card, Great buy, Will plan on getting a Second one soon!

Super fast card! Factory overclock is great!
This is GREAT card! I have had no problems with it and it is a BEAST! It can max out BF3 with it no problem at 1680x1050.

I highly recommend this card to anyone who want to play games on high settings without breaking the bank!

I am so happy with this card that I just purchase a second one for crossfire!

Keep it up MSI!

Reviews from the Web

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

Comment: The MSI R6870 Hawk not only released with a completely redesigned PCB, but the new fan/heatsink combo is another upgrade from previous versions. The Twin Frozr design has worked out very well for MSI.

Comment: Thanks to the overclock achieved, the value is very strong. It's indeed a tough fight for AMD, though, with the aggressiveness being seen on the GTX 560 Ti.
Posted by: dht @06/03/12
Comment: MSI's Radeon HD 6870 HAWK comes with many features geared toward overclockers, like voltage control support for three voltages, voltage measurement points, dual BIOS and a powerful cooler. The card is also overclocked out of the box and MSI asks a $30 price premium for all those features.
Posted by: dht @06/03/12
Comment: There's no way around it, the R6870 HAWK is a very impressive product. See, the reference R6870 all by itself is obviously already a great value product that offers good performance. MSI upped that up a notch by the (though petit) standard overclock.
