I've used many MSI Gaming X graphics cards in past ~2 years, including 1080 Gaming X, 2060 Gaming X, 2080S Gaming X, 2080Ti Gaming X/Z, 3090 Gaming X and 3090 Suprim X.

I think 2000 series Gaming X models were great, all ran very cool and quite all the time and better than other high-end models like Asus Strix or Gigabyte Aorus(probably the best looking 2080Ti but worst thermal performance out of all high-end 2080Ti) or EVGA FTW3 etc.
MSI 2080Ti Gaming Z was probably my favourite card because it was the fastest stock 2080Ti thanks to much faster 16Gbps memory.

However 3000 series Gaming X models are bit disappointing compared to 2000 series Gaming X models.. because I don't think it's improved much since the 2000 series but 3080/3090 cards runs much hotter(especially 3090) than 2080Ti.

But luckily MSI released new Suprim X models for 3080/3090 and I think it's a great card, I have 3090 Suprim X atm and it runs much cooler than 3090 Gaming X and still almost silent. It also looks good, only downside is the weight of the card which makes it sag a bit so I recommend using the provided support stand. (imo you don't need to use any support bracket on other high-end MSI Gaming X models)

If I had choice to pick the 2080Ti & 3090(or 3080), then I'd pick:
2080Ti: 1. MSI Gaming Z, 2. MSI Gaming X, 3. Asus Strix, 4. EVGA FTW3, 5. Gigabyte Aorus
3090: 1. MSI Suprim X, 2. Asus Strix, 3. Gigabyte Aorus, 4. MSI Gaming X, 5. EVGA FTW3

Personally I'd pick MSI 2080Ti Gaming Z & MSI 3090 Suprim X over premium models like EVGA Kingpin or Galax HOF Anniversary Edition etc, because I prefer air cooling(not into water cooling or AIO) and I like having a simple and very quite(all air) PC system.

I think Gaming X model are also gg maybe even for 3080, but with 3090 the backplate of the Gaming X got very hot(almost too hot to touch during load) probably cos 3090's got double sided ram so even the backplate gets hot.
But other than 3090, I was very satisfied with all the Gaming X/Z models.

I think Asus has done great job with 3000 series, Asus 3080/3090 Strix has much better VRM than MSI 3080/3090 Gaming X models, and VRM on Strix is better than Suprim is well.
Asus also improved the cooling performance heaps on 3000 series from 2000 series so now Strix has better cooling than Gaming X, but Suprim runs cooler than Strix.

MSI 3070 Suprim X is probably one of the coolest(temp) 3000 series card considering the size and weight of the cooler.
Asus 1070Ti Strix is probably the coolest card I ever used cos the heatsink on that is almost identical to one on Asus 2080Ti Strix. (I don't think Asus improve the design and cooling much from 1000 series to 2000 series)
