ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1050 Mini
  • Verified Owner

5 out of 5 eggs Zotac GTX 1050 mini 11/04/2016

This review is from: ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1050 Mini

Pros: Compact design
good price to performance
solid 1080p performer
low power consumption

Cons: takes up 2 pci slots because of the cooler
only 2gb

Other Thoughts: I got this for an older system that has a i7 870, 6gb ram, and a 300watt psu. So far works great and runs my games medium-high 60fps 1080p

Pros: - looks great
- 2 pci-e ports
- good for over clocking

Cons: None being that I upgraded from an old board

Other Thoughts: I upgraded from an intel DH61CR board. Huge leap. Great for my overclocking.

Pros: -4.0ghz stock 4.4ghz turbo
-hyper threading
-K series CPU, meaning excellent over clocking capabilities
- one of the best consumer CPUs available currently.

Cons: -Have heard it runs hot with the stock cooler so I'd recommend getting an aftermarket cooler, though I haven't used the stock cooler as I have a corsair h55 liquid cooler which produces great temps.
-$100 more than the i5 4690k, not really a con just stating that if you're just going to be gaming go with the i5. However I have noticed a significant difference in tasks such as rendering, streaming, and editing with this CPU.

Other Thoughts: I upgraded from a core i5-3570k CPU to this CPU and I have noticed a significant increase in performance. Such as having multiple applications running at once, rendering, streaming, editing, etc. however you will not notice much if any performance increase in gaming except on a few titles that utilize hyper threading technology. But for what I use my computer for, this processor gets the job done very well. I am using a corsair h55 liquid cooler and my temps at idle are around 40c and under load I rarely exceed 70c. This is with a 4.6ghz overclock. So in conclusion, if you're looking to do some crazy multi tasking and some other high CPU intensive things, this chip is it.
