Zotac 1060 Mini 6gb vs Zotac 1060 AMP! 6gb

Just a quick question. is there a huge difference between single fan and dual fan? not gonna OC. Also, ASUS 1060 Dual 6GB OC is at a similar price as AMP!. would it be a better choice?

Zotac has 5 year warranty, Asus has 3 years. Up to your brand preference. Remember, no such thing as "better" brand. What happens to your card is entirely up to luck.

Try to get 2 fans for better cooling performance. The mini single fan card is designed for shoebox (mini ITX case) where space is really of a constrain or regular 2 fans cooler design cannot fit in.

dual fan is cooler , less noise than one fan under load .

OC is slightly better than AMP by maybe a few frames ,mostly identical performance.

Nowadays there are intelligent auto OC software like msi burner even noobs can OC safely and easily to get better performance for newer demanding games.

I have a mini 3gb, with a custom fan curve and some OC the card doesnt go above 60 degrees at full load.

Just get the cheaper card imo.

I do recommend the AMP version if you are getting a GTX 1060. I recall that it heats up quite a bit, so better to have a more efficient cooler. The Mini cooler is a simple slab of aluminium with a copper core I believe.
