I own a Zotac Box Mini and I recently bought a gtx 1650 fanless a few days ago. I play with it something like 7-8h on games like PUBG and so far so good I had no issue and it was totally silent so I like it.

I used before a gtx 1050ti with fan and the heat created by this gtx 1650 fanless is I'd say the same as the 1050ti with fan.

I read on different places on the web that a fanless gpu still need a fan. what is your opinion about that? What happen if it don't? Lower performance or ... worst?

@anis_souris, The key is airflow for fanless components. If your AMP Box mini is at a well ventilated area I think it should be fine. Do you keep the top lid on or off?

@itsage  I keep the top lid on, always in a relatively well ventilated area (not inside a desk or anything). So I guess it's fine, but what worse can happen? GPU throttling? (If its just that I'm fine with it)
