MSI Afterburner is a tool used to overclock GPUs. While earlier the tool was restricted to only MSI GPUs, owing to its increasing popularity, MSI made the tool compatible with just about any GPU on the market.

However, there’s more to the tool than just overclocking GPUs. There’s a touch of customisation in the form of numerous skins that users can apply to the software to give it a personal touch.

In this article, we’re taking a look at how to change skins in MSI Afterburner and where you can download more skins should you don’t find the inbuilt ones to your liking.
