Hi everybody,

So what about the Asus GeForce 1050 Ti Expedition ?

Image

It looks very quiet in this review (in french but with lots of self-explanatory charts), in both 2D and 3D :

It has a nice design with 2 silent fans that won't turn on below a certain temperature.
Maybe a competitor for the Gigabyte models ? (6 different models BTW, hard to choose ! ( http://www.gigabyte.com/Graphics-Card/G ... -10-Series )

:wink:

I have feeling that the 1050Ti are very similar to the 750Ti in terms of noise. Really didnt matter much which card you bought, well thats not completly true, on the 750Ti not all stopped on idle, only the Asus, but the MSI that i owned was very quiet, never even past 1000rpms and 65C temperature, today 1050Ti i think most of the stop their fans on idle, so i think it doesn't matter much.

Personally i dont like the design of the asus fans tonally, but in here shouldn't matter much as the card shoudlnt reach levels where those fans are audible, i still prefer the MSI as the fans to me have a better tone, but honestly buy whichever you like the best, i don't think either should be noisy.

59W and still a PEG! Why?
I want a semipassive one without need for extra power.
If there is a connector I suppose you have to use it, or am I wrong?

The gfx card may sense that the PEG connector is not plugged in and not work. Hard to tell w/o trying...and the Ti's are 75W power target for stock speed...some mfgrs add the PEG for overclocking room...some add the PEG so you don't run up against the 75W PCIe limit.

There is no power connector on this card, as this review confirms. There is incidentally a mildly overclocked version of this card, the eSports OC Edition about to come on the market.

Palit KalmX @ Tom's Hardware added. Noticable clock throttling without case fans, does fine with some airflow.

I was planning to buy KalmX, but currently put it on hold.
Some information, I've got from Palit support when asked them (might be useful for someone):
This card has 2pin input, so you can connect the fan directly to the card. You can control the fan speed via Afterburner, Thundermaster etc, but you cannot stop it (for example until the card reaches given temperature) - card BIOS has the minimun fan speed set and you cannot omit it. That's strange, because for such card (with the aim of passive cooling) fan should not run for over 90% of its time.

Unfortunately, but finding perfect 1050Ti is a challenge. Most of good samples have 6PIN connector, which is a problem for me. MSI 1050Ti Gaming would be perfect (cool, quiet) but has 6pin PEG connector. EVGA 1050Ti SSC is really good card, but their fans have nothing in common with silence.

Regards

The Asus Expedition GTX 1050Ti might be worth considering - it does not have a 6 Pin connector, it does have 0dB fans. By default the fans do not run while the GPU temperature is less than around 50C. Using Asus GPU Tweak II software there is the option of turning this 0dB fan option either on or off through a dedicated button. In addition GPU Tweak II can be used to create a custom fan profile that can extend the normal 0dB fan cut off point from about 50C to approaching 80C GPU temperature. At this point the minimum fan duty cycle that can be set is 30% and this can be maintained up to 100C. This would give an extended period of fanless operation with the fans only coming on under gaming stress and/or high ambient temperatures.

Use an adapter.

I could connect the card using SATA=>6PIN adapter (I saw such thing on auctions), but I'm not sure if it's safe. In theory it should be, as all those cards need very little power (there should be sufficient power directly from PCIE). What do you think?

I don't trust SATA connectors that much, they are the weakest: so I would not use a SATA to PCIe, but a MOLEX (4 pin) to PCIe adaptor. If you don't have one (MOLEX), then a 2 SATA to 1 PCIe "y adapter".

Said that, even with the PEG connector aboard, the MSI is still a 60W card, and just the PCIe slot can supply 75W... do your math. :wink:
