MSI 2080 Super Gaming Trio vs Gaming X Trio

They both identical cards from the looks on them, But what are the differences, I've noticed that the X version has 30Mhz Boost clock higher than the Non X so, Is it possible to apply the rom from the X version to get the Extra 30Mhz, and also are the coolers the same or different?

Why bother with BIOS update when you can overclock those 30 Mhz yourself
Even that makes little to no difference

The reason I would do that is to prevent the hassle of overclocking, although I don't know if there is limits set by MSI on the cheaper version the non X one, also I want to verify if it is the same cooler that put on the X version. I hate MSI now for their naming scheme now that makes me more confused in buying their products.

You think flashing a BIOS is more of a hassle than OCing? Either way, I doubt the 30mhz actually translates to anything. Assuming the same temps (and they should be the same), they should boost to the same clock speed for the most part.

Should definitely be the same cooler; wouldn't make much sense for MSI to have two separate stacks of coolers that have the same dimensions [it would cost more to fab a cheaper variant than it would save them by 'cheapening out'].

Naming makes sense; the "X" is "cooler" so it costs more (and they slap an extra 30 mhz on it to make it seem better).

sorry but I don't get what you say here, you say that the X version is cooler than the none X ? if that so I should have bought the X one ?

Cooler being "nifty" (lol), not colder.

"Gaming X" sounds better than "Gaming," I was being facetious about them being able to charge more (though, I do believe that is what they are doing).

Here is the link of both cards, please tell me if there any noticeable difference between them except the 30Mhz Boost

The only difference between those cards is the X on the box and the +30 MHz...

Just download Afterburner and overclock it yourself. There really isn't much hassle, you just move the sliders and apply the settings.
