MSI Infinite RS 13th Review: Silent Desk Dominator

If you’re after a high-performance gaming and productivity PC that keeps fan noise to a minimum, MSI’s Infinite RS 13th should be on your shortlist – provided you have lots of room and lots of cash (or at least credit). With a Core i9-13900KF and an RTX 4090, both liquid-cooled, it delivers top-end performance while maintaining a shockingly silent fan sound profile, with the help of two radiators and nine fans.

The system’s MSI Prospect 700RL case is also of higher quality than you’ll find on most prebuilts, including some of the best gaming PCs, with lots of room for adding extra components. Just know that with great and quiet performance comes great commitment to desk or floor space. The case is over 21 inches tall and nearly two feet front to back. And the swing-out doors are cumbersome, with nearly zero clearance from the ground. That makes this system decidedly inconvenient for placing on carpeted floors – you better have a big desk.

Design of the MSI Infinite RS 13th

The “Infinite” in this MSI desktop’s name is seemingly a nod to the amount of space it will take up in your life. At 21.14 x 10.12 x 23.03 inches (HWD), the Infinite RS 13th isn’t the biggest desktop I’ve tested. But I’m pretty sure it’s the biggest I’ve dealt with since the days of SLI and CrossfireX when two-, three- or even four-GPU systems like the Digital Storm Aventum were far more common.
