Hey guys, which of the blower style 1070's is best for my little itx rig? I know there's a founder's edition card, the MSI aero, and Asus turbo (not sure if there are more). What do you guys recommend?

MSI Gaming X or Zotac AMP Extreme?


Difference in price is cca 10€.





Which one and why?





Amazon links from where i will order it:





MSI


Zotac

 





Zotac will be faster out of the box at stock settings. The Gaming Z is more comparable than the X in the stock performance stakes.

Both OC to about the same levels.

MSI is one of the quietest cards around

Zotac much larger so check available space

Zotac draws more power than the MSI


zotac fan issue is terrible that's y 3+2 warranty like barnacules said warranty is for #poorpeople.

 



Cant comment on Zotac Fans. I am pleased with the quietness of my MSI Gaming X even at 100% fan

The Aero and Turbo cards use cheaper parts, hence why they're cheaper in price than the Founders Edition cards.

i'm anti giga & msi but this time round i prefer MSI cooler + heat-sink + pcb

Asus turbo. I believe the aero uses stock pcb and vrm setup while the turbo has a custom vrm setup.

Thanks for the reply guys, so then is the founders edition regarded as being superior to the ASUS turbo and MSI aero in terms of acoustics/thermals?

Personally I would go Asus turbo. Looks way better then reference and has aftermarket pcb meaning better vrm design of some sort (can't tell without review). It does class it as being assembled with Asus new technology tho. You can see by this picture the little Asus logo on pcb. So obv not reference.

This is pretty cool also.
https://www.google.ca/amp/www.techpowerup.com/223676/asus-intros-geforce-gtx-1070-turbo%3famp

Or you could go with the gigabyte mini 1070. Basically made for itx rigs. It will dump heat into the case tho.

Okay guys, now is decision time and i desperately need your help,

I have been closely monitoring and debating the Samsung vs. Micron GDDR5 memory issue for about two weeks now,

The conclusion is that, Nvidia designed the GTX 1070, its BIOS and Drivers based on Original specifications of Samsung GDDR5 8Ghz modules, the Samsung ICs appear to need low voltage/power to remain stable and can handle voltage fluctuations flawlessly.

Micron GDDR5 on the other hand, being a lower quality chip, is power hungry which needs constantly high voltage pumping to remain stable, so it can not operate at the same voltage/power envelope that was originally developed for Samsung GDDR5 in BIOS and Drivers.

The assumption was initially made that there is a BIOS/Driver bug preventing Micron GDDR5 from running stably, but what it turned out to be, because of the poor power properties of these Micron chips, they can not operate at the original voltage/power specifications and thus a fix was to pump as much power into them with the available tools, meaning voltage-locking and "prefer max performance" which are both not part of the standard specification.

The GTX 1070 has been significantly downgraded as the initial memory OC range showing in all early reviews (from 9000Mhz to 9750Mhz) is no longer valid and the new range is now 7600Mhz to 8800Mhz, meaning that the lowest Samsung OC is higher than the potential highest Micron OC.


Now i need to know what to do with my Micron GTX 1070 and i need your suggestions:

1- Return the damn thing, get my money back and wait for Nvidia to start making card with Samsung memory again if ever.

2- Return the damn thing and get a Founder's Edition GTX 1070 with Samsung memory and live with the reference cooling and noise.

3- Return the thing and get my money back and wait for AMD's VEGA.

3- Return the thing and wait for Volta!

4- Get a GTX 1060 or an RX 480 instead.

5- Suck it and live with the new downgraded performance!

6- get a PS4 Pro! LOL smile.gif


Please advise ...

I'm confused... I've never heard of this. So at stock clocks both micron and Samsung should work fine correct ?

If I was you and this stuff actually matters as much as you're saying just get a reference card. Under normal circumstances its not going to be noisy. Nvidia is not AMD their reference coolers are much more silent then AMD cards.
