The single-width Galaxy GTX 750 Ti Razor is a new one on me!

My mobo has six PCIe slots, and with two double-width GPUs installed I have two spare single slots. Or perhaps I should sell my two GPUs and install six of these??!!

I don't find them on sale Stateside, neither amazon.com nor newegg.com, but amazon UK and France have them, albeit quite expensive.

Any experience of this GPU out there?

no, but it doesn't look very cost-effective. The cooling system doesn't fill me with particular enthusiasm, either - with no rear exhaust putting two of these side-by-side isn't going to be the best of ideas.

The fan is very small - it's going to be OK for this card, but it's also going to be very loud and hot. Smaller fans die faster. Certainly not what one want's to run under heavy load 24/7.

My EVGA 750ti is double width and has a "rear exhaust" grille, but it doesn't actually do anything - all card heat goes into the case. It's also only a single fan and runs cool even when overclocked (on top of EVGA's factory 'superclocking'" - like upper 40s / low 50s C on GPUgrid tasks. You never know, this single width config might be just fine..

That fan looks like it came out of a Kinder Surprise egg!



With a 60W TDP, you would be better off with case cooling and GPU heat blocks without fans.

The card consumes about 55 W running GPU-Grid. Double slot coolers and half-modern case cooling with a single 120 mm fan handle this easily. If you want to know how single slot & mini fan configurations deal with such heat just look at cards around the caliber of Geforce FX5900. It somehow works in single slot, but it's loud and the small fan is prone to failure. Even more so under sustained load, for which this thing is certainly not built.
