    Always loved the design of MSI's GAMING series, the and black and the aesthetic of the fans are very aggressive but not overkill. cheers for the review hilbert!

    I agree the shoutout is AMAZING and gives a clear and clean comparison between cards. Hopefully we can also see one for the Firestrike GPU score.

    Ugh, I absolutely hate the "Gaming" "OC" modes that lots of GPU OEMS do now.

    I'm fairly sure the regular version has the backplate, and the configurable RGB dragon logo on the side, but not the RGB logo on the backplate. Only the Z version has that.

    In other words the regular is same as the X version, except for the clock speeds.

    I never let it on default either, my fan curve starts at 40% and ends at ~80%. I swear that to me there is no audible difference between 0% RPM and 40% RPM. There probably is one, but the fans in my case, simply cover it up so it's inaudible.

    If possible please post the screenshot from GPU-Z. I would like to see if the card came with micron or Samsung DDR5 :)

    Thank you in advance.
