Inno3d 1060 IChill X3 6GB or Gigabyte G1

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I'm considering an upgrade from 560 Ti to 1060 and I find these two cards interesting:
Inno3d 1060 IChill X3 -https://www.overclockers.co.uk/inno3d-geforce-gtx-1060-ichill-x3-6144mb-gddr5-pci-express-graphics-card-gx-069-in.html

Gigabyte G1 -https://www.overclockers.co.uk/gigabyte-geforce-gtx-1060-g1-gaming-6144mb-gddr5-pci-express-graphics-card-gx-18f-gi.html

What do you think? I couldn't find here much info on Inno3d, it seems to be not very popular. Is it a reputable company? I like that it has a bigger cooler and I have space for such monster. On the other side G1 has higher boost frequency.

Of course any other suggestions are welcomed smile.gif

Thanks

Personally I would go with Inno3d 1060 IChill X3...

Personally i would go with any card that's cheapest. All cards aren't loud and they all overclock pretty well. I just bought a 1060 2 days ago.

Thanks for reply.

They are both at the same price 269 GBP. I did also more digging and here are reviews and info I found:
- Inno3d review http://hexus.net/tech/reviews/graphics/95545-inno3d-geforce-gtx-1060-ichill-x3/
Basically same performance as X1, so G1 will perform better as it has higher factory OC.
Temperature 61C when gaming, so there is room for OC

- Gigabyte G1 review http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/graphics/2016/09/16/gigabyte-gtx-1060-g1-gaming-review/1
Has more technical details and confirms that power phase is 6+1 and
Quote:
"This sees the PCB itself as well as the capacitors, chokes and MOSFETs all being upgraded in certain ways compared to normal ones"
Temperature are lower and I don't know if they are actually comparable to the Inno3d review.
Both the temp and power elements upgrade confirm that this card has good base for OC

So can I assume that Inno3d has also good power elements? It has 8pin connector and good cooling, so it would be stupid to put something that cannot handle an OC further than the factory.

EDIT: Inno3d is actually 5+1 phase. I don't know how I didn't see it before on the store page!
