MSI’s award-winning gaming PC Trident 3 will be getting a limited edition ‘Arctic’ makeover in addition to a massive performance upgrade, it has emerged. The icy, white colour scheme isn’t just for show, it’s being supported by the Silent Storm Cooling 2 system which individually cools heat-generating hardware via separate chambers, guaranteeing a smooth, immersive gaming experience free of interruptions.
Speaking of immersion, the Trident 3 Arctic comes loaded with an Intel® Core™ i7 processor combined with a GeForce® GTX 1070 graphics card, making it very well optimised for VR gaming. If you like personalising your hardware, there’s also an RGB Mystic Light which lets you change around the colour and effects of the front LED lights. Here’s a rundown of all the specs you need to know:
