I love this card, cool and quiet. Would love another one but the whole world is buying up everything! I see an in stock notification and 3 minutes later it's gone!
Are we going to be able to get a free game?
Too bad it's US only. I would have totally jumped on this.
This is 25 dollars cheaper than Newegg with the mail in Rebate.
When are the graphics cards going to be shipped? I need it as soon as possible!
HellboyUndead
Yeah me too. They sad it will be sent 5/24/2017
Konstantine

I''m in NJ and I got charged 7%
HellboyUndead
It seems that your state is charging you, I'm not sure why bc it's shipped from your state
I just bought the 1070 Sea Hawk X a week or two ago off Amazon for $450. Now I have to return it, but it's definitely worth it.
lol i got the bundle one like a month ago and this ones 150 less wtf. i feel ripped off
MUST WAIT, FOR VEGA!!
LoftySmalls
People were saying the same thing last year when this launched. Yet still nothing.
Finally a good price and it's US only... of course. Even with shipping from US and VAT this would have been like 200€ cheaper than from my country :(
lol, I guess I've jinxed it, and now they are US-only. On the flip side, MD is now gonna have a tough time competing with the likes of Newegg and Amazon in the ultra-competitive US tech market.
is this drop only in america?

Not ANY nvidia GPU. It's for 1070/80/ti and that's it, and even then only from eligible suppliers

The point is moot though since the promo ends in a week, after than there maybe a new one or nothing lol :)

That's not as good of cooling though. You can probably reach a max OC of 2000Mhz on the core with that. But with an AIO card you can reach stable clocks up to 2350Mhz on a GTX 1080. People buy AIO's for overclocking, not value. This drop makes it all the more appealing.
I may be interested in this drop. Would there be a way for me to get a reduced price if i do not take the free games included in the deal?
Gamecast_17
Nope, but you maybe able to sell the code to offset a small portion of the drop's cost.
Hello Everyone, I am currently talking with MSI and will get everyone their codes sent out via email and will update with the correct process asap. Thanks for pointing out the error here and I’ll keep you updated as soon as I have more information.
I already have the codes for everyone that joined this drop previously and will be sending them out ASAP. Cheers.

Excellent :) now if you could hurry up and ship those 1080 tis while you are at it ;)
Question regarding the codes: now that nvidia has renewed the same bundle for another 3 weeks (through April 18), what are the chances the the codes issued by you are still usable with this new offer (it now covers 1060s). After all, the codes you obtained and emailed out were obtained before March 28 when the old offer expires. A clarification from MSI rep would be helpful in that regard :)
Only recommend buying if you like to spend more money for less, its cheaper on newegg and you will not get the games if you order from here. This card is no longer worth what is advertised, on the last drop we all lost 100 bucks on this card.
The games are free anyway so it shouldn't be called a "bundle".
Harry_Lin
There's no bundle, lol :)
Hmm, not really worth the money when Nvidia just released the GTX 1080 ti and Vega right around the corner.
I wish Nvidia would stop screwing over their hardcore PC enthusiasts by releasing ti models right after people spent so much money on their flagships.

1070 and 80 were mid-range from the start, since nvidia released Titan XP like a month after they released 1070/80 :) They are even based on 104 chip which is mid-range. At least titan and ti are on 102 chip which is almost a full pascal chip.
They are both midrange. If you have to the 480 that was the last time the x80 and x70 had the high end 100 die. Those cards were also in the $700 range at the time.
That said the newer 104 cards have much higher quality ram and pens and clock much higher. The old x60 cards would not clock at all but the modern x80 104 parts clock the best of the line.
Hello Everyone,
I wanted to pop in a leave a quick note. Massdrop is an authorized re-seller of MSI products. We are purchasing them directly from MSI. Rebates and promotions are authorized by MSI before running these products on Massdrop.
The website link for the game promotion is the same link for every re-seller. The codes are not given out to the re-seller's to re-distribute to the end user. To obtain your game code and receive the game download you must follow the instructions on the page 100% or it will not work and you will not get the code.
We have had some customers contact our customer support stating that they have had issues with this. We have walked them through the process and they were able to get their code and game download just fine.
On this particular drop which is limited to 11 units, this inventory is already in the Massdrop warehouse. So it will ship out very quickly. I have adjusted the expected shipping time on the drop to reflect a more accurate ship date.
I hope this clears up a few things.
Cheers.

Anzial, Dont worry I have the gaming codes secured for the 1080ti drop also. Cheers.
B.Hutch
Cool, but don't forget the clock is ticking, only 1 week left to use them ;)
Don't buy this... Buy a 1080ti.
I don't see the value in this considering the "What-Ifs" involved and the fact that the 1080ti was recently released which, correct me if I am wrong, is performing at a claimed "30 percent" higher average.
Kipacus
I have to agree. This would have been a good drop back when the 1080s were still harder to get a hold of, but now that the Ti is out and the price of the 1080s has been cut you're better off either getting a 1080 with a non-reference cooler, a cheaper blower style cooler and putting it under water yourself, or just buying a Ti.
Buyer beware, it is highly unlikely that you will actually get the game bundle in this drop. If you want the bundle, buy from eligible nvidia resellers, listed in the link below
http://www.geforce.com/hardware/10series/for-honor-ghost-recon-wildlands-bundle
MSI is among them but MD is not. MD will not provide the code required to redeem the game bundle. They will refer you to registration at MSI website but so far, I haven't seen anyone reporting actually securing anything from the game bundle promised here. Plus, even if you do secure a code somehow, you will be too late to redeem it, nvidia's promo ends March 28 (so just over one week from now), and the drop doesn't ship until April 14.
It is kinda sad that MD still hasn't fixed the description where it says that a 120mm fan is cooling ram and vrm when it is obviously cooled by a 70mm fan at the most. 120mm fan is on the rad that's attached to GPU cooler. All in all, this drop is a SNAFU.
EDIT: registration at MSI yields a ubi code for the GRW season pass, but not the nvidia game bundle code. Makes sense, since nvidia bundle doesn't include the season pass, that's MSI's own promotion on top of the nvidia's one.
$585 after rebate from Newegg, with guarantee that you'll get the code for the free game...
Massdrop deals aren't worth shit anymore, half the time you save 10-15 bucks and end up waiting an extra week or two to get your items.

If you get anything from Massdrop in under 2 weeks it's an anomaly. Usually you're talking 4-6 weeks minimum.
jaytea2789
Very true. For the last few months I have been thinking exactly that. Guess I'll give it a few weeks to show a real "massdrop deal" before signing off on it.
I GOT THE CODE. Here is how.
1. get serial from box 2. get serial from card near pci-e connector 3. REMOVE LAST THREE DIGITS FROM THIS NUMBER 4. create account on msi.com 5. Register product on register.msi.com 6. click on "my product" 7. click the "relative promotion" red button in line with your product 8. choose the promotion thing on the right. There are two, the left one appears to be for notebooks only. 9. click the redeem button 10. use the code to activate the game IN UPLAY. It did not work for me in steam or geforce experience.
PROBLEM.
Even though uplay accepted the code and will not accept it again the game does NOT appear in my uplay games library. I don't know what the fuck its been such a shit show im done right now.
Maybe something has to happen or some monkey needs to push a button. I will give it 24 hours and if its not available in uplay I guess I raise a support ticket.
Hope this helps you guys avoid some of the bullshit ive been dealing with.
may the force be with you

nope and I got the shits so I didnt bother raising a support ticket with MSI.
I got the code from MSI but couldnt use it, I expect if I call them / raise a ticket it will get resolved.
CBF factor pretty high rn
Darkhorsefkn
After contacting Uplay, it turns out the MSI only gave me a code for the season pass not the game. This is why it didn't show up in my game library.
Can anyone please help us find the code to redeem the game?
What am I supposed to be looking for?
Darkhorsefkn
So basically MD engaged in false advertising, promised a game but didn't give the code to actually get it. Jeez, what a rip-off, if considering also the price drop which occurred right after the drop ended.
EDIT: MD admitted the mistake and taken steps to supply the codes.
Where do i find the code to redeem one of the games?

THEY EMAILED THE CODE GUYS
BLXXDTXXRS
Yeah, they did, after I proved that the procedure they posted for redeeming the game doesn't work lol
It's disappointing how MD duped all the buyers on the last drop, just days before nvidia introduced such heavy price cuts on 1080. Now every drop participant gonna have to wait weeks for their videocards which can be had for hundreds of dollars less right now
Zetto
this thing is 584 after rebate on newegg as of march 10th 2017 lol- welp its the way the cookie crumbles man- I'll just SLI some founder 1080s a few years from now right before whatever else is next.
Hope it ships as quick as last time
Elegant card and the price is lower than in stores
