MSI's limited edition Trident 3 Arctic gaming PC isn't just a white paintjob: the Mini-ITX build rocks a customized ITX NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 with 8GB of GDDR5 VRAM for performance gaming and VR, complimented by Intel's latest powerful Core i7-7700 3.6GHz CPU "to get performance levels far above its similarly-sized console counterparts." The SFF PC also sports 16GB of DDR4-2400 RAM, and a single 256GB M.2 SSD and a 1 TB 7200RPM hard drive for storage.

The Trident 3 Arctic stays cool as its icy paintjob thanks to MSI's new Silent Storm Cooling 2 system, which "individually cools the most important heat-generating hardware in the system using separated chambers." And what modern rig would be complete without RGB lighting? MSI adds some scintillating flair with its RGB Mystic Light LED array.
