Fitting to the launch of the Nvidia GeForce GT 1030 on 17 May 2017, the hardware manufacturer presented six models of the entry card. Customers have the choice between active cooling, passive cooling, normal height and low-profile models. The MSI GeForce GT 1030 AERO ITX 2G OC comes with mini-ITX format with active cooling. A similar format is the MSI GeForce GT 1030 2GH OC, which, however, renounced active cooling and thus completely passively and quietly works.
Two low-profile models come in two models at normal height. Differences are related to the cooling and the graphics outputs. The models MSI GeForce GT 1030 2G LP OC and MSI GeForce GT 1030 2G LP OCV1 are active cooled. The first model comes with a DisplayPort and an HDMI output. The second model comes with HDMI and DVI.
The models MSI GeForce GT 1030 2GH LP OC and MSI GeForce GT 1030 2GH LP OCV1 are passively cooled. The first model comes again with DisplayPort and HDMI, the second model with HDMI and DVI.
