MSI Aegis 3 (2017) review

 

This small gaming PC is powerful and whisper quiet

Small form-factor ; Tons of ports ; So very, very quiet

Surprisingly heavy ; Difficult to open chassis

The MSI Aegis 3's stunningly quiet fans belie its powerful specs and aggressive design, all in a small form factor that's easy to carry.

MSI Aegis 3 Review and Ratings

 

MSI's Aegis 3 is a menacing light show of a compact PC, with funky angles, LEDs galore, and Pascal power to grind through your AAA games. And it's a surprising value.

Futuristic, menacing looks ; Excellent gaming pep for so compact a desktop ; Front-mounted HDMI port for VR ; Carry handle ; Included peripherals are much better than average

Large for an SFF desktop ; RGB case lighting looks great, but needs more end-user customizability

The MSI Aegis 3 stretches the definition of an SFF desktop. Its futuristic exterior is a visual icon, complete with RGB case lighting. It looks great from any angle, and it certainly has a lot of those.

MSI Aegis 3 8RC-057EU review door AlkoMasterz

 

RGB ; Futuristisch design ; Stil en koel ; Out-of-the-box klaar voor gebruik

Prijzig ; Niet gigantisch vernieuwend ; Niet even snel aanpasbaar

De Aegis 3 8th is een prima keuze om een flitsende PC in bezit te hebben. Hij heeft kracht en ziet er fabulous uit. De MSI Aegis 3 8th is een waardig stukje metaal met een flink prijskaartje.
