A little powerhouse that pairs very well with my i3 Skylake.
There is a firmware update that took care of some random fan spinning up issues I was seeing..
Cool and quiet, fits in my case.
Works well with most games. Modern titles need to be turned down a little but not to much.
Nividia :Purely due to osx support. This particular model due to price and Mini-ITX dimension. Was really hard to find a new one. The 970 was out of my budget. I was not sure between 950 or 960. At then end went with 960. The cheaper 960s available dint go into the case. There were a few used ones in the mini itx formfactors but as the offered prices were not so much cheaper(no returns too) and also as the one main part that could make or break an osx build, I dint want to take the risk. I game mostly on my PS4 from my couch and I am satisfied(atleast for the moment), but I wonder what the gtx 960 is capable of.
Got it delivered after I had the build running for a week. My build without the gtx was dead silent during normal use. I could even hear my stomach churning during my long hours while getting the osx up and running. As soon as I installed the GTX i could HEAR the difference. But its not bad, I am just exagerating :P.
