The card reaches 67 degrees Celsius under heavy gaming, which is a few degrees over the benchmark. The card has a simple cooling system. Along with an aluminium heat sink, it has one large heat pipe, which makes contact with the GPU and gets cooled off by the 2 fans. Somehow this cooling system is not as efficient as the other GTX 1050 Ti's systems. The card does get hotter than the other GTX 1050 Ti cards, but luckily it doesn't have actual heat issues. See More
Out of all the GTX 1050 Ti cards listed, this is the most expensive one. There are no noticeable differences in performance between the cards. Eventually, you pay more for the same performance. Comparing to GTX 1060 Ti cards, the value per dollar is lower. If your budget reaches over $200, it's worth considering other models. See More
The GTX 1060 6GT from MSI only features a single DisplayPort, HDMI-port and DVI-D connector. A reference GTX 1060 offers three DisplayPort connectors. This can be an issue for people who plan on using multiple DisplayPort monitors. See More
This MSI GTX 1060 uses a Twin Frozr IV cooler, identical to the coolers used on MSI's GAMING series of GPU's. These coolers perform excellently and offer significantly more cooling than any other GTX 1060 (except the Asus GTX 1060 Strix OC Edition which cools equally as well). It remains 15 degrees Celsius cooler than the Founders Edition, and 11 degrees cooler than the EVGA card. See More
Sound production is also fairly low with a Twin Frozr IV card. As seen here, the maximum sound production under load is around 39 decibels (A) from 100 cm distance and 60% fan speed. 39 decibels is considered to be fairly quiet, and annoying noises such as coil whine aren't present in this card either. It is the loudest GTX 1060 card, but it is still pretty quiet and shouldn't cause much disturbance. See More
The MSI GeForce 6GT OC has been slightly overlocked to a base clock of 1544 MHz, which is a 38 MHz over a reference GTX 1060. The boost clock of the graphic card has also been given a slight boost: 1759 MHz compared to the standard 1708 MHz. This is still lower than any other GTX 1060 card (other than the Founders Edition which is the reference design). See More
The GTX 960 chip has been around for a while, and both NVIDIA and AMD are introducing new mid-range graphics cards in the remainder of 2016. It's only a matter of time before a new graphics card debuts with increased performance and the same price tag, such as the RX 480 by AMD. See More
The GTX 960 holds up well in gaming benchmarks with a 1080p resolution and all games are perfectly playable. Some of the more recent titles may require you to to use medium settings, but overall 1080p performance is good. For example, Metro Last Light runs at an average of 56.1 frames per second with maximum details. See More
The EVGA GeForce GTX 960 4GB FTW GAMING requires a single 6-pin PCIe power connector and is decently energy efficient. In non-gaming situations, maximum consumption is measured at about 9 watts while the maximum power usage during full load is 140 watts. Compared to its predecessor - the GTX 760 - that's a 21% improvement. See More
