GALAX GTX 1050 Ti EXOC Test Setup

In benchmarking the GALAX GeForce GTX 1050 Ti EXOC White, I am using a Gigabyte Z170X Gaming 7 motherboard powered with an Intel Core i7-6700K processor, overclocked to 4.5GHz. Overclocking the CPU to 4.5GHz should be on par or at least performs similar with the newer Core i7-7700K at stock. Below are the rest of the system specifications:

Operating System: Windows 10 Pro 64bit
Motherboard: Gigabyte Z170X Gaming 7
Processor: Intel Core i7-6700K @ 4.5GHz
CPU Cooler: Cryorig A40 Ultimate All-in-One
Memory: Corsair Vengeance LED DDR4-3200MHz 32GB
Graphics card: GALAX GTX 1050 Ti EXOC White 4GB
Storage Drives: Zotac Sonix 480GB NVMe SSD, WD Blue SSD
Power Supply: FSP Aurum PT 1000W
Chassis: In Win 805 (without the glass side panel installed)

Below is a GPU-Z screenshot of the said graphics card:

During my tests and benchmarking, I was using the GeForce driver version 378.92 for Windows 10 64bit. All games are tested in three resolutions, namely: 1920×1080 or full HD, 2560×1440 or WQHD and 3840×2160 or 4K ultra HD.

GALAX GTX 1050 Ti EXOC Temperature and Noise

Idle to Light Load Temperature

During idle to light load, including surfing the net, word processing and etc., our graphics card runs at around 40° degrees Celsius +/-. The fans don’t stop even when idle and runs at 40% of its speed.

Full Load Temperature

Meanwhile, during full load the temperature goes up to around 70° degree Celsius. That’s pretty much the highest temp I got while stress testing this graphics card. The fans run a little bit faster at 50% during full load.

GALAX GTX 1050 Ti EXOC White Noise

I don’t have an accurate sound meter device to measure the noise level, and I don’t think I would need one for this graphics card. During idle to light load, the graphics card runs very silent, inaudible actually. The fans run at around 40% of its speed during idle to light load situations. While on full load or when playing games, the fan speed bumps up to 50% and it’s still very silent. The fans installed on the radiator are the only thing making noise, and coil whine doesn’t exist on this card.

    does fan stops at idle?

    • no, the fans don’t stop at idle

      use msi afterburner and it should accept the fan profile you can setup.
      so far i’ve only seen seen 1070 (and higher) that would not let you drop to 0% manually.
      sometimes the manufacturer only uses FE profile or might just lock it to a certain min rpm,
      but so far, all sub 1070 cards i setup can be throttled on the fan to any number.

      i usually run a min rpm that keeps all fans spinning at lowest number they allow (without stopping)
      till 50C, then jump to stock profile rpm till 60C, and max fan speed at 100C.
      monitor temps for max levels in afterburner, if you hit +82C set endpoint to 5C less and see if its enough.
      try to stay below 84 as max temp, unless you turn up temp and power limit in afterburner,
      which would also allow the card to boost higher (without manually adding oc).
      just make sure you have decent airflow, and this card will most likely clock +2ghz
