Packaging and Closer Look


The GALAX GeForce GTX 1050 Ti EXOC White comes in a nice white box, with the hooded guy on the background. This box art is actually similar with their GTX 1070 EXOC SNPR White and Hall of Fame cards, less the sniper crosshair and a smaller box. I prefer this box art design compared to the creepy looking characters used on their other models. The package includes a quick installation guide, a driver CD and a 6-pin PCIe adapter.

Above you can see the front and rear view of the graphics card. As you can see, it’s all white and it’s very clean looking. I think Galax should have silver coated the exposed copper heatpipe to better match the color theme of the graphics card. Nevertheless, the whole card itself looks very clean and it looks even better once powered on thanks to the white LEDs under the fans.

The Galax GTX 1050 Ti EXOC White has two DVI ports (some 1050 Ti only have 1), an HDMI port and a DisplayPort. Unlike other GTX 1050 Ti on the market, this one does require an external power via a 6-pin PCIe power connector.

Removing the cooling shroud reveals that the GPU chip directly touches the copper heatpipe and partially the aluminum heatsink as well. The copper heatpipe distributes the heat towards the rear end of the aluminum heatsink. Meanwhile at the front portion of the heatsink, you can see a thermal pad for transferring the heat from the MOSFETs. The memory chips doesn’t make contact with the heatsink, thus are not cooled passively.

Under the hood, we can see the GPU chip on the center of the white PCB, surrounded by four memory chips. You can also see the 3+1 power phase design.

Zooming in, you can see the GP107-400-A1 chip powering the GTX 1050 Ti, featuring 768 CUDA cores. The GPU die is made from a 14nm fab process with a transistor count of 3.3 billion and a die size of 132 mm². There are four Micron MT51J256M32HF D9SXD GDDR5 memory chips and it’s rated to run at 3504MHz or 7008MHz effective.

Next page let’s take a look at its temperature, noise and the test setup we used.

I love computers since I was a kid. I’m always fascinated with new technology, especially in the PC world. Many years ago, I was curious if the reviews I read were true and real. So, why not test them myself and share my first-hand experience? And thus, here we are. Thanks for reading!

    • 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
