Aorus All-Round Cooling Solution
GTX 1060 Windforce Cooling System
AORUS provides the all-around cooling solution for all key components of the graphics card. We take care not only GPU but also VRAM and MOSFET, to ensure a stable overclock operation and longer life. On the front side, the large copper base plate dissipates the most heat from the GPU and VRAM. On the back side, the copper back plate dissipates the heat from the GPU back side. All other key components are taken care of very well by the WINDFORCE cooling module. AORUS ensures the customer a better cooling solution in many ways.
Advanced Aorus Fan Cooling
Windforce 2X cooling system
Equipped with 2x 100mm unique blade fans, 4 pure copper composite heat-pipes, and heat-pipe direct touch GPU, the WINDFORCE 2X cooling system delivers an effective heat dissipation capacity. To optimize air flow the GTX 1060 uses alternate spinning fans to reduce air turbulence and effectively dissipate the heat.
The composite heat-pipes combines both thermal conductivity and phase transition for efficiently managing the transfer of heat between two solid interfaces which increases 29% of cooling capacity.
Unique Blade Fans
The airflow is spilt by the triangle fan edge, and guided smoothly through the 3D stripe curve on the fan surface, effectively enhancing the airflow by 23% over the traditional fans.
3D Active Fans
The AORUS GTX 1060 are equipped with 3D-Active Fan. The fans will remain off when the GPU is under a set loading or temperature for low power gaming. The LED fan indicator on the top of the graphics card provides an instant display of the fan status.

The market for graphics cards priced at Â£250 has been hotting up since both AMD and Nvidia released GPUs based on their latest architectures. AMD has been more eager to pinpoint the sub-Â£200 market with two GPUs - the Radeon RX 480 and Radeon RX 470. Specifically, if you can find one, the Sapphire RX 480 Nitro 4GB is arguably the best card south of this all-important figure.
