These days there are more companies that make graphics cards with the very best OEM.

It does not mean that MSI has the very best products, but we could say that MSI is one of the top three graphics card manufactures with room for improvement. 
According to Manufactured, existing Gaming X products use a red-on- black color scheme that isn’t suited to every build, and though the company has frequently extolled the virtues of its dual-fan cooler, it can no longer ignore the fact that many consumers go by the assumption more is better. 
MSI made the decision to add another triple –fan cooler to its arsenal in the form of the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X Trio. This device was designed to slot in between the high-end Gaming X and extreme Lightning Z priced at almost  $1,012.
The Gaming X Trio is bigger than Gaming X, measuring 325 mm in length, 48mm wide and rising above the standard PCIe bracket to 140mm in height.  The card occupies the best part of three slots, while it looks and feels impressive with red LED highlights on the front side. The Trio is designed to suit a wider range of builds but just missed to implement RBG illumination throughout.
Peeling away the shroud reveals an expansive array of aluminum fins interspersed by six heat pipes (two of which are supersized) that traverse the nickel –plated copper base plate. A metal cooling plate provides additional cooling for the memory chips, and trio of favored Torx 2.0 fans provide the airflow.  These turn off when GPU core temperature is below 60º C and this is effectively a repurposed Lightning Z cooler.

There are more choices available when it comes to custom GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card, the options are: AMD’s Radeon RX Vega, MSI’s latest offering has merit by offering improved cooling over the existing Gaming X, without the overclocking focus and expense of the full-fat Lightning Z, or well built implementation of Nvidia’s fastest 10- series GPU.
