Good spot Orig; I thought there may be others. I opted for the MSI as I like their three year warranty - plus I've had one before! Also, the Asus is out of stock and delivery shows 1st November.

What does "no backplates" mean?

It's a cover for the other side of the card to protect it from scratches, heat and provide more support, well that's the reasoning but it's mostly for aesthetics.

Thanks!

My recommendation would be the Gigabyte ITX OC model. I bought one to replace my faulty EVGA SC and it's the better card. The same form factor, yet runs a good 9 degrees cooler, is just as quiet and overclocks to 2.1GHz+ like just about all 1060s. With this code it'd be £204.97 plus whatever postage is, which is a fantastic price.

what was faulty about your evga card? i was thinking of getting the same one

that gigabyte card for that price is a bit of a steal, its good to see that these 1060's are going down a bit in price

Those miniature cards look amazing. And for the price it's a steal. I'm thinking of selling my gtx970 for one of them

Only one fan. Not recommended i you can buy it m.pcnation.co.uk/pro…=12 . 200 Ghz Overclock if you change settings. I prefer 2 fans in case of dust or overclocking. Msi and Palit JetStream use similar cooling solution. They are really quiet.

It just stopped booting out of the blue. Black screen, no display output at all. No idea what happened with it. First card I've ever had to die so abruptly. I might have gotten a replacement, but the place I bought it from had no stock, so I just took a refund.

Utterly irrelevant. The 1060 uses so little power that a small, single-fan cooler is more than enough. I ran my EVGA SC overclocked at 2.1GHz stable and am now doing the same with my Gigabyte ITX OC. As for dust, I don't see how the number of fans has any relevance to that at all. For a start it shouldn't be an issue with a decent, filtered case, but even if you don't have one, an extra fan isn't going to prevent dust build-up. You'll just have two dusty fans instead of one, plus a larger heatsink to clean.

The huge, overbuilt 1060s are snake oil. For a power hungry top end card, yes, larger coolers offer benefits. But for a 120W mid-range card where overclocking has been standardised by Nvidia that puts out very little heat? Nah. I'm somebody very sensitive to noise, and have returned many cards in the past just for being too loud, but both single fan 1060s I've had have been inaudible. The better temperatures on the Gigabyte over the EVGA are nice bonus on top of that.

I am somebody that is sensitive to heat than noise. but even so 2 fans is better than 1 as you can run both fans at lower rpm to create lower noise level with good cooling than a single fan.
I generally wouldn't recommend gigabyte. they are known to use cheap quality pcb components.


Bought the Gigabyte Mini ITX version thanks to Aretak. Be aware that 4 day postage is £4.95 and annoyingly they do a 1.5% surcharge on all credit cards.

I did exactly the same. They have rised the price now, but I was able to get it for a total of £216 with next day delivery and it could have been as low as £211. Amazing value.

I went with 4 day delivery, they say it's awaiting despatch and have taken the money so am hoping it's OK.

Great spot chaps, just ordered the Palit 1060 Super Jetstream for £240 delivered. I did want the EVGA SC but its out of stock until the 8th Nov. Booooo.

I ordered Monday and still awaiting despatch. Anyone got their card yet?

No but mine says despatched and with the courier might be worth giving them a buz.
