Indeed, this is exactly why the Original Godlike was a fail.

It is only one small part of the design, so it won't be too bad. Perhaps they have a "black edition" in the works.

"Sadly with this GPU coming in RED and black the RGB LEDs illuminated logo offers no real advantage, as any colour other than red or white will clash with the rest of the GPU" gets repeated twice ^^ not sure if that was meant to be?

That aside

it does look cool though

All the best to MSI selling these over the Strix and FTW with their 'RGB done right' attitude.

So this is dimensionally different right? It looks way shorter but much deeper than the standard layout

Nobody commented on the 6+8 Power and custom power delivery phase? Is this OC3D???? Who cares about the RGB. I want to see a custom bios/afterburner unlock over 120% target. Then lets put it on water and see what you can really get from GP104!

Can't believe MSI were so STUPID to do red and black AGAIN with RGB! Their whole marketing team needs sacked and replaced with people with brains
