MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X

The design of the MSI Gaming X edition is exactly as we'd expect from MSI. They've opted for a large heatsink with two relatively large fans on top of it. Just like many other models this card from MSI is just a bit wider than the standard two slots. The card is relatively short though, due to the limited amount of fans.

Compared to the cooler on the GTX 1080, the Twin Frozr VI on this card is not only thicker, but it also features an extra heatpipe, for a total of six heatpipes. The power circuit (8+2 phases) and the memory chips are cooled by respectively an extra heatsink and a metal plate.

The MSI logo on the top side is RGB, however the rest of the lighting is only mono-coloured. Another nice addition is the free 1-year license for XSplit Gamecaster Premium.
