Just got my EVGA GTX 1050ti from Fedx. Took all of 15 minutes to install. Running all 1080p Ultra settings in BF1. Seeing up to 70 fps and never drops below 58. Still smooth at 58 though. This card replaced my original GTX 760 which couldn't pull 30+ on Ultra. Good buy for 139 bucks.

hey, I am planning to upgrade my GPU from a GTX 760 TI to a GTX 1050 TI because the GPU is constantly overheating which is shutting down my X51 by itself.
However, I haven't found a GTX 1050 TI with a blower style fan yet. I've noticed that the GTX 1050 TI you're using doesn't have a blower style fan, are you experiencing any overheating? Are you by any chance using MSI Afterburner or something similar that tells you the GPU temperature when you're in a game?

No problems at all so far. I barely notice if the fan is even on.

Hi. Did you upgrade only the graphic card? I bought my R1 few years ago... running on GeForce GT 545 (sweat..)... thinking of upgrading the graphic card but not sure my motherboard is compatible or not...

Thanks.

*update* My motherboard is 06G6JW.. Should I upgrade my i7 3770 to i7 6700?
