the new revision has some features cut, like rgb and type c and from 6 heatpipes to now 5 hp only.
but, the whole heatsink of this new 3x model got significant upgrade on thickness, making it now >2 slot instead of <2 slot on the old model.
so the 3x model should have the same thickness like gaming oc model.

it is very interesting to see whether the number of heatpipe matters or the thickness of the heatsink determines the cooling performance.
I have the one with 6 heatpipes (GV-N207SWF3OC-8GC). I don't see the OC 3X anywhere in shops tho. I am running my card with 1700RPM and it keeps at the card at 80C with that rpm. Makes the card not audible at all.
