I am doing some experiments. In Italy the cost of a GTX 1050 ti is 175 Euro and I consider it a very good price. I bought a Gigabyte low profile Gtx 1050 ti and I am getting out of it almost 15 mhash (14.65 to be precise). I am reaching it heavily overclocking the memory to +1000. This is a Gigabyte already overclocked version.

175 euro / 14.65 mhash = 12 Euro cost for a mhash.

Anyone getting a better bang for the buck and getting a bit more out of this card, I know it can go up to 15.56 mhash but not the low profile versions. This card consumes only 50 watt mining ethereum so I am thinking of building a home build with 6 like these. Which is the best to get.

Instead of buying 1050TI's now you are better off getting higher end cards or buying an RX 470/570 when they return to retailers.

I do not do modding of Bios of those cards and even modded they reach maximum 26-27 Mhash, normal with only memory raising through MSI Afterburner they go up to 23-24 mhash price of one of those is more than 400 Euro for the moment and it is not cost effective, they consume higher power than 2 GTX 1050 ti.  2 GTX 1050 ti gives you about 29.5 mhash and 100 watt consumption, that is almost 0.001 bitcoin daily with only 100 watt consumption (or only a light in your room consumption in an hour Smiley . They are not anymore cost effective IF you don't mod the Bios of RX 470/570.

Still I am looking for answers for GTX 1050 ti low profile or normal and not for RX, I have 2 boards running with RX 480 8GB Nitro plus which I and a few friends keep in a warehouse. I want to build a home PC with low power consumption and good average hashrate.

Just buy an old R9 280X or 7970, you will make more money with those and they are dirt cheap second hand.

Not on eth.... and at triple the consumption.... 1050ti were $120 not long ago on evga B stock and that was the SSC card with the dual fan ACX cooler.

1050ti seems reasonable and I'm trying to put together a 13x or 14x rig on Asrock H110 Pro BTC+

570s/580s can get higher hashrate than 2x 1050tis and with lower power. Also it uses much more power in a day than a standard light bulb uses in an hour lol. 1050tis are only decent if you can't find 1060s/1070s

Nice job you got a lot more than I have.  I haven't OC'd or anything. Do you mind sharing your settings?

Well I have no time to answer to the above guy saying RX 470/570 consume less than 2 GTX 1050 ti, probably they do when they are bios modded but not stock settings and I told I do not do bios modifications, too risky in my opinion.

Here in the picture below , you have my settings, +1000 memory was not that stable so I lowered it to +950 the memory.



To the guy who says R9 280X, 7970 are dirt cheap, I am afraid where I live, they aren't 140 Euro used in Ebay Italy and their consumption 4x than that of GTX 1050 ti when mining ethereum, they are good for Zcash which they consume more power.

Want to hear a few more opinions if there is possible of how to get more hashrate from this card. I have a 600 watt be quiet psu which will gladly make room for 6 of these without too much problems. The cost of building a 6x 1050 ti is cheaper as the PSU will be cheaper, longer time consumption will be cheaper (we pay a lot for energy here). And above all this rig will stay in my home and not in a warehouse where we have all the boards with RX 480 running.
