I'm curious about the general opinion on these 3 implementations. Which one do you prefer and why?

    Not the Gigabyte as it does not have great cooling. For MSI, try and go for the GAMING X, touted as one of the best. Asus seems hit-and-miss with the brand of memory, Samsung/Hynix memory not as common, I am led to believe.

    1. MSI
    2. Asus
    3. Gigabyte

    Yes, the Gaming X gets a lot of praise but it's also 50% more expensive than the Asus, for example. At least where I live.

    Gigabyte seems to be using Samsung or Hynix for their RX470 G1 Gaming. 1 of my current Gigabyte G1 Gaming is using Hynix, will be checking on the other one to confirm.

    MSI Armor, Gigabyte G1, then ASUS Strix (if you mean 470, the 480 I like.)

    Mainly because of VRM controller choice. I like the choice on MSI Armor, I don't have any Gigabyte G1's, but it's probably not worse than the ASUS Strix 470 >.>

    MSI Armor and ASUS Strix are both more expensive for my region by 10+% and that is not even factoring the rebate I can get. The Hynix memory in G1 Gaming is turning out to be a shocker.
