This question I'm not too sure myself. the 3060 TI needs two fans only, honestly - it's not that hot.

I always liked the Asus TUF, and Zotac cards are good too. I heard MSI has VRM issues. Others I'm not too sure.

Oh yes, one thing to remember - for the 3000 series GPUs, don't use any Daisy Chain cable. 1 8-pin connector connects directly to the PSU. If there's another 6 or 8-pin, use another cable to connect directly to PSU. It's something I read in Reddit awhile back.

Yes 3060 ti is your better option for now. Since you only play like D4. Some would say that 3080 is overkill but at the end it depends. If u are going to change your gpu in the next 3 years and wont be going to any intense gaming in future then 3060 ti is more than enough.

go for 3 fans. More cooling is always better. But see if your casing fits 3 fans as gpu will be longer. Also 3 fans is more expensive abit. Actually 2 fans is also sufficient for 3060 ti.
Also Zotac have 5 years warranty. Some would again say that zotac not as good as others such as Asus. Fan noise. For 3060 ti, 3 fans, any brand to me is about the same. U might want to consider on the warranty part. If you go for 3080 then maybe u might want to look into more detail which brand is better.

Ok after looking around in Shopee, i have shortlist to 4 option:-

Option 1 - Colorful iGAME GeForce RTX3060 / RTX3060 TI Ultra W OC Graphic Card - RM2,0399.00

https://shopee.com.my/Colorful-iGAME-GeForc...96-0a9cda500d90

My first choice at the moment, cheapest and most value compared to the rest with triple fans. Only downside is i dont know the brand.

Option 2 - ZOTAC GAMING GEFORCE RTX3060 TI AMP / RTX3060 TI SMG VERSION 8GB DDR6 256BIT VGA CARD WHITE EDITION (LHR) - RM2,169.00

https://shopee.com.my/ZOTAC-GAMING-GEFORCE-...8e-412cdad37c2b

My 2nd choice, but only DUAL fans and i read some reviews online and most mentioned on the fan noise

Option 3 - ASUS Dual GeForce RTX™ 3060 Ti V2 OC Edition 8GB GDDR6 with LHR features ( DUAL-RTX3060TI-O8G-V2 ) - RM2,459.00

https://shopee.com.my/ASUS-Dual-GeForce-RTX...c2-74f12ee53f6b

My 3rd choice, DUAL fans only as well. And read it online being the most reputable & reliable.

Option 4 - ASUS ROG STRIX RTX3060-O12G-V2-GAMING RTX3060 OC 12GB DDR6X 192BIT GRAPHIC CARD (LHR) - RM1,995.00

My last choice, TRIPLE fans but not TI (Titanium?) Not sure how much difference in performance is this compare to those with "TI".

Help me to pick guys ! notworthy.gif
