MSI GTX 1080 Ti GAMING X TRIO Unboxed
MSI is always a company that prides itself on the presentation of its graphics cards from the box, to the card itself, with the GTX 1080 Ti GAMING X TRIO being no disappoint. The box itself looks great, and gives you enough information on the card without having to double check on your phone or online.
All MSI has to do on the front is show off the RGB goodness on the GTX 1080 Ti GAMING X TRIO and I'm hooked.
On the back, we find out all about the Mystic Light RGB lights on the card, the Torx 2.0 fan, and the elaborate heat sink that keeps the GTX 1080 Ti GAMING X TRIO nice and cool.
The card itself looks so, so good in person - with a tease of the GAMING X, but once you see the back you realize we're seeing some LIGHTNING influence.
Out of nearly all of the custom GTX 10 series cards from MSI, the backplate on the GTX 1080 Ti GAMING X TRIO is one of my favorite. The blend of the silver and black there with a forced line down the middle, that perfectly aligns with the angle of the Mystic Light RGBs on the top of the card... perfect.
We have a 2.5-slot card, which requires 8+8-pin PCIe power connectors, standard for custom GTX 1080 Ti cards.
As you can see, we have a 2.5-slot card with a beefy heat sink array underneath.
Once it's installed, you're cooking with gas. Look at that card... my gosh.
I'm really loving the design of this card. If you've got other RGB-capable parts in your system like RGB LED strips, fans, RGB-capable RAM, and more - the GTX 1080 Ti GAMING X TRIO might just be the powerhouse graphics card for you.
As for the design cues from the GAMING X and LIGHTNING graphics cards, here's a look at the other two cards in MSI's stack:
