MSI N460GTX 1GD5 Cyclone 1GB Review

To overclock the cards today we are using MSI’s Afterburner software and testing for stability in Crysis. We will overclock the reference GTX460 and the MSI 460GTX Cyclone 1GB.


Our previous overclocking experiences with the GTX460 cards have been impressive, but the MSI card we received has such a massive amount of headroom we are shocked that MSI haven’t supplied this at higher overclocks ‘out of the box’. 905mhz on the core and 1050mhz on the memory are astounding results.

With such a huge overclock we were expecting great things, but we have actually seen this card now outperform the HD5850 in Crysis. Not much we can add to this.

Older AIO coolers with LGA1700 mounting kits may have issues with Alder Lake CPUs

Many CPU cooler manufacturers announced they will give out LGA1700 mounting kits for free if you own an Intel Alder Lake CPU and a selected cooler. This is usually a good idea, as it allows PC builders to reuse their current CPU cooler, rather than being forced to buy a new one. However, early reports seem to point to cooling issues when bringing older AIO coolers to the LGA1700 platform.
