  • How to install Dragon Center/Creator Center if I have already installed MSI Center?
    Why do you want to do that? But if you insist on making the “wrong decision”,
    • 1. Follow the steps above to uninstall MSI Center and MSI Center SDK.
    • 2. Search for MSI Dragon Center/MSI Creator Center in Microsoft Store to install Dragon Center/Creator Center.
    • 3. Waiting for the installation to complete.
  • Why does Dragon Center ask to uninstall MSI Center SDK before installing?

  • This is what you get for not liking MSI Center, but you can fix it by opening command prompt and type “reg delete HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\MSI” and enter “yes” after.
    Note.
    Make sure no MSI Center registry key left in the specific path

Will installing this MSI Center repair the damage that installing Dragon Center caused? I was only recently, after extensive internet research, able to disable the Nahimic Virus that Dragon Center infected my system with. I will NEVER buy another MSI product, until they address, and rectify, the wise spread problems they have caused their customers by forcing Nahimic down their throats!!! Anyone who has installed the god awful Dragon Center knows EXACTLY what I am talking about. You should not have to buy a special uninstaller just to eliminate a unwanted program/virus that a manufacturer sneaks onto your computer without asking.

I gave it a shot but it says that the language can't be translated on installing, can't even use the "new" software

What happened to the RAM tweaking options that were in Dragon Center? There is only RAM info only..
Features -> Customize in MSI Center. Trident 3 can't change RAM options in BIOS, so must use this tool..
So much for better updated " more unique features" experience with MSI Center.. it's simply Dragon Center ripped apart and missing features!
Will you add this to MSI Center? Otherwise I'll just go back to Dragon Center.. Changing the Command Rate on my RAM on my other Trident 3 helped.
Would be nice if BIOS wasn't so extremely limited on the Trident 3.. It's kinda sad.

This software is slow and buggy, I have to re-install it every time I want to do anything with Mystic Light. Just implement the plugin to make the RGB work with Asus Armoury Crate like Corsair did, then we can all use an app that actually works.

MSI Center Feature - Graphics Fan Tool
Zero Frozr

Enable (Default): Recommend for average users
When system is at idle, fan duty will remain at 0% to minimize the noise from graphics card. Fans start to cool GPU down when GPU temperature passes zero frozr temperature threshold (45 to 60 degree C based on different models).
Disable: Recommend for hardcore gamer or graphics heavy user*
Fan will constantly cool GPU down by applying minimum fan speed (~40%).

When GPU temperature rises, MSI Center will apply more aggressive fan curve.**
- Pros: Expected to reduce GPU temperature by 4 to 7 degree Celsius under load comparing to Zero Frozr enable mode
- Cons: GPU fan will spin at all time


Final fan curve varied by different graphics card model

Figure 2. GPU Fan Curve Comparison (Zero Frozr ON vs OFF)
* Zero Frozr is disabled automatically when MSI Center "Gaming Mode" activates
** Aggressive Fan Mode is available for graphics cards using GDDR6X VRAM. Find details in product specifications page\memory section

Figure 3. Memory Type

Cooler Boost
Powerful cooling mode that applies maximum fan duty for 30 seconds to bring down the GPU temperature instantly. You can only enable Cooler Boost once every 5 minutes.

Optional Fan Duty Change Method
Afterburner

  • 1. DO NOT disable Zero Frozr when applying customized fan curve in afterburner
  • 2. Zero Frozr function will automatically disable when using customized fan curve
  • 3. DO NOT set fan % lower than minimum fan % (bottom yellow line)
