Wait for the card to launch first then worry. Those who have good Plat and Ti PSU are safer.

My asus 3060ti tuf also dont have distributor sticker on the box. Just call distributor to check with your S/N if is under ban leong or avertek stock.

For ITX casing? You need to see the airflow layout first. If you feel Zotec has better cooling then go for that.

My case can fit up to 3 fan gpu also.
So just evaluating my options.
Usually worth to pay like $30 more asus 3 fan configuration instead?

yup still comparing the cost. considering to upgrade from my RX 5700 XT to future proof abit more since im playing in 2k resolution.

Now mainly considering ASUS Mini 3060ti. ZOTAC 3060 TI twin edge, ASUS TUF 3060 TI NON OC (~$30 more).
likely waiting 7.7 see got further discount from shopee voucher anot.

does OC and non OC have major difference? cause saw some non OC is slightly cheaper

If can fit 3 fan just go for it, cos later buy liao regret

To be honest, if the price is about the same, I will recommend just getting Zotac if there is no teething issues identified when you looking online. The reason is because, (1) longer warranty if you register, and, (2) no void warranty sticker, and that means you can still disassemble the cooler to may be change thermal compound.

3 fans config also means the heatsink is going to be bigger to accommodate the fans. This should result in better cooling. However, the 3060 Ti is not exactly a very hot card @ 180W. Whether it is worth to pay 30 bucks more, really depends on you.

In my opinion, you are not going to see a significant bump in performance from a RX 5700 XT to a RTX 3060 Ti. I rather you skip this generation and decide later in the year.

Yup. According to benchmark from youtube. the change in performance improvement is around 20-25%. Still considering how much i need to top up for this upgrade. I am playing with 2k resolution monitor.
Got see RTX 3070 as well which is around $100 more above RTX 3060TI.

Actually i well know my current 5700xt still can use for current games, just scared i miss the window to do an upgrade and chances of GPU price firing back up. If that happens, I need to wait another 2 years window for price drop etc.

Thanks for your view.
