Today, we get a chance to share a new budget video card from AMD, the RX 6750 XT. Based on the Navi 22 XT die, the new RX 6750 XT is nearly identical to the RX 6700 XT, aside from being equipped with 18 Gb/s GDDR6. The RX 6750 XT slips into the product stack between the RX 6700 XT and RX 6800 and judging by where it sits, it should be more than adequate for WQHD (2560 x 1440) gaming.
The MSI MPG Quietude 100S represents MSI’s dedication to providing silent performance and modest designs. With our recent review of MSI’s MEG Coreliquid S280 AIO cooler and its slogan “Can’t Hear It Coming” it should be obvious MSI is making a lot of silence in its product line-up. The MPG Quietude 100S is the chassis counterpart to its flagship AIO cooler. This mid-tower case features a multitude of noise-reducing technologies, minimalistic lighting, and high-speed connectivity. Often times when a case is designed for silence there is a trade-off with thermal performance. In this review, we will put that to the test. How silent is the Quietude 100S and is there any compromises?
