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.

The inside half of each fan blade has been given a steep curve to increase the air intake.

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.


1060 Xtreme Virtual Reality Link

Whether you’re looking for the best solution for VR devices or for using up to 3x 4k monitors, the Xtreme Gaming 1060 GPU from GIGABYTE has you covered.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 - 3GB
Date Issued: 24th Aug 2016

The market for graphics cards priced at £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-£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.

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 XTREME GAMING 6GB GDDR5 VR Ready Graphics Card, 1280 Core, 1620MHz GPU, 1847MHz Boost is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delivers good performance for the money This GPU is really good especially in conjunction with the software. that allows you to run a factory overclock. Also , very good for mild 1440p and 1080p at 144hz.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1060 FTW The Gigabyte GTX 1060 XTREME GAMING card is a great performer. The card is the 6Gb version which is a must for future gaming and gives you a cushion for more vram demanding games. I run at 1080p with all settings maxed without issue. I imagine you can easily go to 1440 and drop down a few settings and it would play just fine. No good for 4k gaming I would say. The card itself is hefty, about the size of a asus 970 but a little thicker, taking up 3 slots. It has a backplate and is well built and comes with some nice led colour changes which flash across the card if that's your thing. The fans are very quiet and they keep it very cool at all times. I generally see idle temps of about 26c with fan speed at 25% and in game of around 55-63c playing the witcher 3 and fallout 4 with mods. Using MSI afterburner, I use a custom fan curve which gently ramps up speed as temps climb, noise levels still seem pretty good. (Note: temps in October, colder time of year) From what I have seen the card is a great overclocker, though I only run at stock speeds, however this particular version of the 1060 is factory clocked pretty high but certainly has more to give if needed. Overall, great card and performance after about a month of use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good entry into 1060 Although you could probably buy a cheaper 1060 and overclock it you pay extra for a decent cooler and a factory overclock that wont void any warranty, looks good and is double the performance than my 770 lightning, more performance than a 970 too. Easy to install and the latest nvidia drivers work well, ready for battlefield 1.
