    Here we go again: whenever the companies deem the time to raise prices has come, there is a fire in their "plants", or a flood, or an earthquake, or tsunami, or origami, or corona, or Ramona, oh porca madonna...

    "No injuries were caused and the production line was not affected."

    That wont stop conspiracy theories about price hike scheming. :rolleyes:

    Despite that, if i were MSI i would take the train and rise the price... it have worked with Intel, AMD and NVidia in the past...
    We already have "Covid logistic impact" "so called "Trump tax" that Biden find very nice for now" etc etc etc... A fire is a good reason to rise price if you need money lol.

    It's their factory, not one of their competitors. That said, I very much doubt the production was not impacted, they don't even state what the fire was.
    Glad no lives were lost.

    Failed due to faulty safety equipment, which was also installed in several more factories. To prevent possible injuries or loss of life, all affected factories have been closed until repairs are completed.

    - MSI

    ..prices go up, Asus has similar issues, Gigabyte too, etc.

    There you go. I made it up, but people would swallow that, and inspections swallow wads of cash and that's that.

    Welp, looks like HDD prices will now quadruple instantly and remain high permanently even though that has absolutely nothing to do with HDDs.

    actualy, MSI and Asus cards are the ones with good VRMs in 3xxx series...In my eyes, MSI Gaming are the best cards out there, always were.

    2013: We caught on fire trying to overclock the r9 290.

    2020: We caught on fire trying to overclock the 3090.

    Joking aside, I hope everyone is safe there.

    I am very disappointed with these sort of comments from you guys. Please get your facts straight before posting such nonsense.

    Everyone knows it's a Michael Bay movie shoot.
