Teardown

Graphics Card Cooler Back

MSI's heatsink uses seven heatpipes to quickly move heat away from the GPU and to the cooler. The main heatsink also provides cooling for the memory chips and VRM circuitry. This is a slightly different heatsink design than on the RX 6900 XT Gaming X Trio.


Once the main heatsink is removed, we find a secondary heatsink for the VRMs and an anti-sag brace near the top of the card.


The backplate is made out of metal and protects the card against damage during installation and handling.
