ASIC Quality and Overclocking
The Zotac GTX 1050 Ti OC Edition does not show the core’s ASIC quality.
|Reference||Factory OC||Manual OC|
The overclocking I got out of this card is just 1 MHz bump over the G1 Gaming GTX 1050 Ti.
Fan Speed and Temperature Observation
What I do like about this card is that its fan noise is less even at 80% manual fan speed. On load with overclocks, it stays at 52 degrees celcius. Even with Max GPU volt set at 70%, its manual overclock is solid.
The fan does not have temperature/load controls where it switches itself off accordingly. In Zotac’s case, ‘freezetech’. Gigabyte G1 Gaming GTX 1050 Ti does have this feature:
While Zotac GTX 1050 Ti OC edition is staying with 45% fan speed with idle temps of 31 degrees celsius, G1 gaming is 43 degrees celsius with no fans.
