MSI Trident 3 Arctic


Clad in a snowy-white case with multiple mounting options, the MSI Trident 3 Arctic is a refreshing, power-packed choice among mini gaming machines.

Striking looks. Quiet cooling fans. True desktop-level performance. Plenty of connectivity, including a front-mounted HDMI port for VR.

No Thunderbolt 3 port. Requires an external power adapter. Some pre-installed bloatware.

Bottom Line: Clad in a snowy-white case with multiple mounting options, the MSI Trident 3 Arctic is a refreshing, power-packed choice among mini gaming machines.

MSI Trident 3 Arctic review: Looks like a console, runs like a high-end desktop


The MSI Trident 3 Arctic is quiet, it's easily upgraded, and it packs a GTX 1070 inside a chassis the size of the Xbox One X.

Approximately the size of the Xbox One X/PlayStation 4 Pro ; Easy access to internal components, and relatively upgradeable ; Performance similar to a full GTX 1070-equipped tower

Swapping out the hard drive is arduous ; Accessing the internals voids your warranty ; Power supply leaves some wiggle room, but it's not much

The MSI Trident 3 Arctic offers the power of an upper-mid tier PC in a chassis the size of the new Xbox One X—and with the ability to upgrade it even further in a few years with a hypothetical GTX 1470 or whatever. It’s attractive, it’s small, it’s...

MSI Trident 3 Arctic review: PC gaming at console sizes


Armed with a Core i7 processor, the Trident 3 Arctic offers true desktop power in a living-room-friendly package

Respectably powerful ; Easy to reconfigure ; Wide array of ports

Not particularly cheap ; A little bulky

Yes, it is expensive, and yes, even if it is small for a PC it is rather bulky for a mini PC. Regardless, the Trident 3 Arctic’s combination of raw power and easy internal tinkering make it a great bet for performance-minded users, even more so than...

MSI Trident 3 Arctic Mini VR Ready Gaming PC (i7 -7700 / GTX 1070)


Limited edition and one of a kind - is the MSI Trident 3 Arctic the system for you? It may be Mini I Limited edition and one of a kind – is the MSI Trident 3 Arctic the system for you? It may be Mini ITX form factor but it is equipped with a Quad Core...

Small form Factor.

It can get a little loud under heavy extended load.

The MSI Trident 3 is a great system and the white ‘Arctic’ version adds exclusivity into the mix.

Absolutely brilliant!


"The build quality and the design are cracking performance is great. The included game pad is a nice touch. The only issue is that no pc should come with 8gb of ram in 2018 but it was easy enough to replace it. The only other thing maybe the pc is...

Slick design


"Fills a spot between my ps4 and xbox one x. Upgradeable to a certain extent probably limited to the psu, but with new card designs being more power savvy should be good for a few years."

MSI Trident 3


"The MSI Trident 3 8th is probably the most console-like mini PC I've ever laid eyes on. it's roughly the same size as an original Xbox One, and can be laid down on its side if you don't fancy standing it vertically with its accompanying base. That's...

Does what I need in a stylish & quiet way


"I've been after a GTX 1060 based small form factor PC (mainly to run Zwift in 4k, or HD @ high FPS) & was going to self build one. I'd looked at the MSI Trident 3's but at regular price they were just a bit over what it would have cost for a similar...

Huge Performance, Small Size


"The MSI Trident is a great PC and packs a punch for its small size. I got this on offer and am very pleased with it. It's early days yet, but would recommend this to anyone, especially for those that need to also consider the size of a PC and where...

Small and QUIET!


"It was my first time using MSI's desktop. I got this model 2 months ago as it will not break my wallet and plenty of storage space. The specs is good enough for me. Also it's white and small and fits well in my bedroom. This desktop was as small as a...
