Me again,

in order to clear up a bit, I gone through the installation steps for my 
MSI card again - as I've already mentioned in my first post, I couldn't 
clearly remember what had fixed the situation for me in the end (I do 
not have the problem myself anymore, but thought to through in some 
hints for others).

I now agree with this, at least I can't reproduce any problems any more. 
But also that I don't manage to reproduce the errors ...

Well my card is still the same, so I guess a newer kernel (with some 
bugs fixed) or different i2c setup might have resolved the issue for me. 
The latter isn't completely unlikely as I started up some 
hardware-monitoring at the same time.  I guess, it just appeared to me 
as if the firmware change did the job.
