3X Cooling Stack For 1060 GPU
There are various aspects to the cooling system embedded into the 1060 Xtreme Gaming GPU, that come together to create an impressive and effective heat dissipation system. This 1060 cooling features GIGABYTE patent-pending 3x 100mm stacked fans, unique blade fan design, double ball bearing structure, angular fin design and 6 composite heat-pipes with direct touch on the GPU. Experience higher performance at lower temperatures with the XTREME GTX 1060.
Much more heatsink coverage by strong and smooth airflow
Increased Fan Count, Size & Performance
Clever layering of this 1060's fans has allowed for larger fans (100mm) to be installed, providing a larger and more smooth airflow. Compared to the standard 3x 80mm fans , the WINDFORCE stack fans create 10% enhanced cooling performance.
INNER FAN BLADE
The inside half of each fan blade has been given a steep curve to increase the air intake.
OUTER FAN BLADE
The outer half has a more gentle angle to stack with other fans and generate 2x airflow.
The Xtreme Gaming 1060 has its center fan spinning in the opposite direction to the others. This is to dissipate heat more effectively to accomplish higher performance at a lower temperature.
Angular Fin Design Increases 1060 Cooling
The angular and unequal fins height does not only channel the airflow through the fins and enlarge the contact surface, but also results in a lower noise level and better cooling capacity for your 1060.

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.
NVIDIA is gearing up to launch the third-rung GeForce GTX 1060 with both reference Founders Edition form and with partner boards arriving at the same time, July 17.
