Has anyone run a gtx 1050ti LP in a HP Elite 8300 SFF with an I5 3470 for a long time with no issues

HP Elite 8300 SFF
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have searched all over the web trying to find out if a GTX 1050ti LP will work in a HP Elite 8300 SFF. Some people say it won't, some say it will and some say it worked for them but they had only been using it for a few days. I would like to know if anyone has run a GTX 1050 ti in one of these machines for a good amount of time without any issues.

Hi:

 

I can't answer your question directly but I don't think it is a good idea.

 

The card should work as far as compatibility.

 

I have the lower power GT 1030 in my older 8200 Elite CMT and it works with no problems at all.

 

Here is why I believe it is not a good idea...

 

The recommended power supply for the card is 300W.   The P/S in your model is 240W.  I don't see that in and of itself, as a major issue.

 

The two things I see as major issues is:

 

1. The card draws 75W which is a bit much for the 240W P/S.

 

2.  What I consider the worst thing, is that the PCIe x16 slot in the SFF is only rated to handle 35W, where in the CMT it is 75W.

 

So, putting more than twice the wattage draw on the PCIe x16 slot could result in a motherboard failure over time.

 

See the quickspecs below, page 14 for the slot wattage specs.
