    1050ti. Just check product pages to make sure the one you look at has fan stop.

    It appears that GTX 1060 - or the AMD equivalent - performance is not available in 2018 given the PCIe-only and fans-off-at-no-load requirements. Is this understanding correct?

    correct. anything higher is asking too much of the pcie slot. they can only provide 75w.

    The Palit 1050 Ti KalmX seems to be the perfect card for the two requirements, but it's not available in the USA. An email has been sent to Palit.

    Just make sure you don't get a fake card.

    i had a couple of these back when i was mining crypto. be aware that every single one of them either had massive amounts of coil whine or fans that made a horrible buzzing/grinding noise. just fyi.
