RGB has become such an integral part of all modern hardware that the RGB light bar on the Trio is the main highlighted feature on the packaging. Not the triple fan design, the RGB.

We've banged on about the red LEDs on MSI coolers for so long we feel like we're shouting into the void. When there is an RGB strip on the back it is almost insane that MSI have chosen to retain these red accents on the fan side of the cooler. It almost makes the RGB strip pointless. Particularly as we haven't discovered a method of turning the damn things off. Away from that the card is a very nice looking thing, even if the front view makes it appear that the fans hang off the end of the PCB, it's an optical illusion caused by the widened RGB part of the backplate.

The heatsink is up to MSIs usually high standards with high fin density surrounded some fat heatpipes that should work in conjunction with the triple fan design to keep everything frosty. We'll find out soon enough.
