It would have been nice to see this cooler on the Vega lineup as well. Not as expensive as the Lighting, but cools better than the Gaming X Twin Frozr.

Beautiful. I have not been this awestruck since the 480 Lightning. And, like the 480 Lightning this card needs a cooler like that sooo badly.

I guess you can really say it's a... cooler design

Did I never see this with any other GPU or do the Gaming and OC Modes seriously activate another 3 exra VRMs?

Other than that I like the looks. Triple fan designs always look better to me.

D'you know I actually don't mind the red. I don't know why. Maybe because it shares something with the 480L, that titanic look. That had lots of red on it too but no one seemed to care

I just think that with RGB there's no need for static colours anymore as you can do them too

90% of the people who buy this card won't even see the red. It will be facing downward in their case. It is odd to use red but I guess MSI think it's their colour or something.

It certainly wouldn't bother me, as I would disable the RGB lights any way.
