Coolest Running RX 6600?
Pros: Simple all Plastic GPU with some serious cooling. The Heatsink and Fans on this thing are great, a little bit on the noisy side (not too much really) but nonetheless effective. Playing games like PSO2:NGS and Resident Evil: Village on MAX settings, on a room with A/C at 20c. Fans never spin-up, they stay at 0 rpm with temps not going over 58c-59c for the whole 2 hours session in each game. 3D Mark Benchmark temps never go over 61c, Doing a stress test (20 runs loop) temps again raise to 61c and stays there for the whole 20 loop. To put it into perspective, My Sapphire Pulse 6600 reach 75-79c on the same conditions. Pretty impressive... Of course on a NON-A/C Room you will get Higher Temps but I don't think they will be high anyway. Also... 2 HDMI PORTS!
Cons: -Plastic all around construction (Yes even the Backplate is plastic on this one). -This is not your flashy RGB all over Graphics Card. (For me is a Pro). -You can hear the fans working, nothing annoying but you know they are on. I prefer this over a hot running chip.
Overall Review: Good Performing GPU with phenomenal cooling and no flashy lights for a minimalistic build. Highly recommended.
This Case gets scratched just by looking at it...
Pros: -Compact -Easy to build in it -Looks Cool
Cons: -The powder coating in this thing makes it a scratch magnet. Don't you dare slip that screw driver slightly, or scrub your fingers on the paint... AND MOTHER M.A.R.Y FORBIDS YOU REMOVE THE TEMPERED GLASS PANEL to assemble your Components!!!.... that's a scratch 100% guaranteed!!!! -Removing the front Fans/Radiator mount plate? Guess What? SCRATCHED!
Overall Review: Its not a bad case if you look past the scratching problem XD
Works OK / Cooling is not the best.
Pros: -Red and Black theme looks great (for me). It matches perfectly with the MSI X570 Gaming Plus. -Well Built. -Compact -Silent but at a cost.
Cons: -Not great cooling -No Flashy RGB (A Pro for me)
Overall Review: Card works ok, but the cooling could be better? I think the Fan Curve is a little bit on the low side? For someone who wants to plug things and forget about them this might be an annoyance to have to go and modify the fan curve. For Comparison the Gigabyte EAGLE one runs extremely cool running the same games as this one at the same settings on the same system.
Card Work and all but it came with Scratches all over the backplate
Pros: -Card Works i guess? -Cooling is good -Minimalistic RGB
Cons: -It was factory sealed so this is not Newegg's fault, and i had scratches all over the backplate, i bet the person who packaged this at MSI was Edward Scissorhands? -Too expensive "Model" for what it is...
Overall Review: Card works good i guess but it freaking sucks that you pay for something new and it came all looking like trash. This is no the first time this happens to me with an MSI product. Also Ordered 2 motherboards that came with scratches all over the chipset heatsink and I/O covers...
