HIGH QUALITY CORE COMPONENTS
COOL LED EFFECTS
Stylize Your 1060 GPU with RGB LED
Through the MSI Gaming App each LED on the 1060 GAMING X can be controlled individually and customized using the various animation effects. These animations range from responding to game or music sounds to a breathing effect - of course they can always be turned off.
GAMING X 1060 ADVANCED AERODYNAMICS
Advanced GPU Cooling Technologies
The GAMING X from MSI has various aspects to help keep this gaming GPU as cool as possible. Every detail of this intricate heat-sink plays an essential part in providing a cool and quiet gaming experience.
This GTX 1060 utilizes advanced aerodynamics, Airflow Control Technology directs more air directly onto the TWIN FROZR VI heat pipes. The special deflectors on the heat sink enlarge the surface area, creating lower temperatures and better gaming.
Smooth Heat Pipes
Embedded within the GAMING X 1060 GPU are copper heat-pipes running through the cards fins. These 8mm thick pipes have been made with a smooth square shape, this will maximize heat transfer from the surface of the copper base plate.
To temper the heat generated by a powerful GPU, MSI GAMING series graphics cards use a solid nickel-plated copper base plate. The base plate catches the heat from the GPU and transfers it to the heat pipes for dissipation - further increasing the cooling.
TORX 2.0 FAN MOUNTED GAMING X 1060
Dispersion Fan Blade Steeper curved blade, accelerates airflow, increasing effectiveness
Traditional Fan Blade Steeper curved blade, accelerates airflow, increasing effectiveness
Advanced TORX 2.0 Fan
TORX fan technology works in teamwork with TWIN FROZR VI to achieve new levels of cooling. The fans design generates 22% more air pressure for supremely silent performance when gaming. The fans also feature double ball-bearings for a strong and lasting core for years of smooth gaming - also helps with noise elimination.
ZERO FROZR GAMING X COOLING
During intense gaming or benchmarking
Completely silent during idle, multimedia or light gaming
MSI GTX 1060 FROZR Cooling
MSI released this technology in 2008 and it has since become an industry standard among graphics cards. FROZR will eliminate fan noise by stopping the fans in low-load situations, meaning you can keep focus on your gaming, streaming or other media without the noise of spinning fans.
HIGH QUALITY COMPONENTS
Rugged Anti Bending strip
Memory Cooling Plate for stable & high overclocks
Larger PCB for extra cooling
Extra 6 pin (75 Watt) power connector
PWM Heatsink with micro fins to ensure cool temperatures
Military Class 4
A deciding factor in your graphics card’s performance is the quality of components that are used. GAMING X 1060 makes use of only MIL-STD-810G certified components to ensure the highest quality possible. When stress tested under torturous circumstances these components have proven very durable.

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.
