Whisper quiet

MSI Gaming GeForce RTX 3080 12GB GDDR6X PCI Express 4.0 ATX Video Card RTX 3080 GAMING Z TRIO 12G LHR

Pros: Simply an amazing card. Small undervolt does wonders. 900mV boosts to 1935mhz Temps are great and fans are at stock settings. Meaning the card is whisper quiet.

Cons: I wish the support arm worked better or was easier to install. The gpu sag is bad, but with the upgraded back plate over the gaming x trio the sag is essentially fixed. Power limit is capped at 102%. 390w at 100% I hear a lot of people flash the bios to the suprim x. This is something I will never do or condone. My previous 1070 could power limit to 120% but I have no idea why.

Overall Review: Card can run hot. I've hit 2025mhz but it is to hot and the fans are to loud for me. A small undervolt is recommended. Do not use msi afterburner oc scan tool. I've read to many comments on it being unstable. I upgraded from an asus 1070ti turbo. Over double the performance/fps. And it's significantly quieter. Purchased for $899. I ended up buying a 1000w gold rated psu and have no regrets. I came from a 650w psu which wouldn't have worked for long with this power hungry card.

Pros: Does everything I want it to when it works.

Cons: I bought this MB at the beginning of the year, sense then i've had 3 RMAs. I have even talked with a Asus IT support who helped me diagnose my computers issue. Who also came to the conclusion that the MB was to blame. I have been very patient and thus have given up on this MB.
