first, i upgraded from a 2080 ti to an msi 3090 trio and It actually was heating my room up noticeably. at no point before did i have to stop playing games because sitting next to my computer become uncomfortable. i live in the north east US and this was in the month of December. my computer literally became a space heater. so yes, it did affect my life. the suprim draw even more power than the trio. so i can't imagine it would be any better
And you're surprised? Open a window. It's what I do.
and second, there is no reason for the same product (rtx 3090) from two different companies, that perform about the same, to have a difference of 100W in power draw between the two.
Actually, there is a perfect reason: Silicon Lottery. Not all dies perform the same. Some can run fast, some can not. Some can run really fast at low power, some need a lot of power to run fast. It just depends on how those GPU dies are binned.

That rig just screams for a ROG card of course.

You never went for best, you went for ROG and top of the price chart, so why change that?

You're right. I love Rog very very much. I'll pay for it and enjoy looking at Rog logo on the components more than when I'm playing.

But the suprim card has to key advantage silence and active backplate cooling and both of them very important for me. But still Rog brand is my favorite.
Finally, I'm confused to make the right choice.

I'd get the Suprim X for that VRAM cooling, the 3090 kinda needs it.

But if you want a full ROG system, nothing wrong with choosing the ROG card.

There isn't a right choice. I was part joking and part serious... but realistically between the two... if you enjoyed looking at ROG parts and want to keep that intact... I hardly think the differences will make or break either card.

Perhaps this one though, as it also speaks for longevity, and this card ain't cheap.

Yeah, heard that the Suprim X has the best VRAM cooling for the 3080/3090s out of all AIBs. I would've gotten a 3070 Suprim X (it was in stock and at the same price as my 520 EUR Gaming X Trio), but it went out of stock. This card's still good though. My GDDR6 doesn't get nearly as hot.

1.Is active backplate cooling Really effective?

2. How is the fan noise ? Are they quiet?

1. The VRAM gets their own heatpipe and heatsink, and there are thermal pads between the PCB and backplate.

2. Can't speak for the Suprim, but my Gaming X Trio is extremely quiet, probably the quietest thing in my system right now. I think the Suprim also has the exact same fans so, yeah, it'll be quiet.
