The MSI Radeon RX 6800 XT Gaming X Trio has the best cooler out of all RX 6800 XT cards we've reviewed so far. With just 67°C, this triple-slot, triple-fan design runs extremely cool, yet stays very quiet at the same time. As expected, idle fan stop is included, too.

AMD's Radeon RX 6900 XT offers convincing 4K gaming performance, yet stays below 300 W. Thanks to this impressive efficiency, the card is almost whisper-quiet, quieter than any RTX 3090 we've ever tested. In our review, we not only benchmark the RX 6900 XT on Intel, but also on Zen 3, with fast memory and Smart Access Memory enabled.

NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3060 Ti comes at incredible pricing of $399, yet beats the GeForce RTX 2080 Super in rasterization, and even the RX 6800 in raytracing. In our RTX 3060 Ti review, we found that NVIDIA picked a fantastic cooler that's extremely quiet, yet fits everywhere because of its dual-slot design.

The ASUS GeForce RTX 3060 Ti STRIX uses the same cooler as the RTX 3090 STRIX. This makes it the coolest card by far at only 58°C under full load. We were also impressed by the noise levels of the quiet BIOS, which is just the flick of a switch away because of dual-BIOS capability.

The Zotac GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Twin Edge is the only custom design that matches the NVIDIA MSRP of $400. While it lacks a factory overclock, pricing makes it a tempting choice, especially considering the large price hikes of other custom boards.
