Hybrid or SC Gaming?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi all,

https://pcpartpicker.com/product/Tv38TW/evga-geforce-gtx-1070-8gb-sc-gaming-acx-30-video-card-08g-p4-6173-kr

https://pcpartpicker.com/product/rQdFf7/evga-geforce-gtx-1070-8gb-ftw-hybrid-video-card-08g-p4-6278-kr 

Comparing these two GPU's which one would be the best? Why would I buy a hybrid GPU? I am only planning to do some overclocking but not alot. Is their any advantages/disadvantages of having a HYBRID GPU? Can you point me towards some videos that explain this? I am having some problems deciding between the two. Thanks in advanced!

Hybrid have much lower temps than regular air cards. Not sure if they run quieter but I believe they do

EVGA Hybrid is an amazing cooler, just go for the hybrid and @TheNaitsyrk is the guy with EVGA Hybrid

Mention me if you want to summon me sooner or later

If they are the same GPU, you can get more or less the same performance results. 

 

An Asus GTX 550ti has a higher stock clock but the reference design can achieve the same overclock as the Asus variant.

 

The FTW cards are the highest performing variant of the EVGA cards.

i installed the Hybrid cooler on my 1070 SC. pretty good, but i think the FTW version may have better overclock capabilities.

Is their any drawbacks of the HYBRID cooler? Like I am worried that the cooler might break or something. Should I get the FTW card?

They are much more difficult to maintain and replace than standard air coolers.

 

I think that if you have the money you should get an air cooled 1070 FTW if you have the money to do so.

Hybrid 1080TI SC2 is amazing. Got 2075 on the core, temps below 50 degrees. 12k on memory and I can probably go further!

 

9 sensors are useful. 

 

The only negative is the price.
