Gigabyte Windforce 2070 RTX vs MSI Aero 2070 RTX

Rivlet

Hello guys,

 

Here's the thing: last Friday I bought an MSI Aero 2070 RTX (https://www.pccomponentes.com/msi-geforce-rtx-2070-aero-8g-8gb-gddr6) but, for the exact same price, I can get a Gigabyte Windforce 2070 RTX (https://www.pccomponentes.com/gigabyte-geforce-rtx-2070-windforce-8g-8gb-gddr6).

 

The question is: should I get a refund for the MSI Aero and go for the Gigabyte? I'm concerned with the following aspects, in this order:

 

1. Durability

2. Performance

3. Noise

 

I've plugged in and tested the MSI and got 71~72ºC in both Monster Hunter: World and Star Citizen, with fans spinning at 60~65% of its capacity. Noise was pretty loud, so I can imagine that at 100% of its capacity it might be unbearable unless I use a headset. The room had a temperature of 19.5ºC. I live in a pretty hot region. In summer, the room's temperature usually reaches 29-32ºC.

 

I've had both turbine and triple-fanned graphic cards and both died. The first one was a 8800 GTX from nvidia. The second one was a 580 GTX Windforce OC from Gigabyte.

 

What would you do? Will the windforce cool better than the aero? Will it be quieter? Which brand do you trust the most?


Thanks.

windforce is better, but not by that much from what I can check on.

Aero is cheap as it gets really, and I'd be happy to have any dual fan over a blower in a standard case. If we were talking small form factor, it's different.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad
