Asus GTX 1050 ti diferent cards

hello everyone,

planning to get a gtx 1050ti and overclock it maybe 1850 / 1900 Mhz, recently figured out that Asus got 2 Strix models
- ASUS STRIX GTX 1050 TI 4GB
- ASUS STRIX GTX 1050 TI GAMING O4G 4GB

i thought both are the same and overclockable, but looks like the first one is not overclockable.
is that true ? and whats the difference between both models ?

  1. They are both overclockable. One just comes from the factory already overclocked.

  2. Check the clocks in both models specifications - you will see that O4G model has higher clocks. Every modern GPU can be overclocked - but note that when starting with card that has been already factory OCed, your headroom is smaller.

  3. i see, means they are both Manually overclockable and the 04G has smaller headroom, but 2 question
    can they both hit same overclocking , lets say 1850/ 1900 Mhz ?
    and if they both can, the normal version have bigger Headroom, will that effect the heat ?

    Maximum clock reachable will always depend on given unit. In theory, better chips are put into better models, meaning O4G should be able to reach higher clock then 4G - but in reality, you never know.
    As for heat, both cards have exactly same cooling solution, so assuming they could both reach same clock at same voltage, they would have same temps.

  5. hhmm, i see
    i think the normal version will get hotter when both are OCed to the same clock. because the normal one has a lot of headroom to push,
    but i hope am wrong, i hope they are both the same because the 04Gaming is not available here :/
