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 animatiosn range from responding to game or music sounds to a breathing effect - of course they can always be turned off.


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.

Airflow Control
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.

Solid 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.

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.


Fans Spinning
During intense gaming or benchmarking

Fans Stop
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.



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 thata re 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.

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.

MSI GeForce GTX 1060 GAMING X 6GB GDDR5 VR Ready Graphics Card, 1280 Core, 1569 MHz GPU, 1784 MHz Boost, Twin Frozr VI is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Example Of MSI at its finest! I purchased this to replace my MSI GTX970 that stopped working and got exactly what I was expecting. The card is a little bigger than the 970 so I had to move some things around ( a bit longer than the 970) but other than that, it works perfectly. The only negative I have is the gaming app for your phone does require you to spend alot of time looking for the MSI server program that I could not find on the MSI website. other than that 10/10 Always have and always will stick with MSI for GPUs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MSI GTX1060 GAMING x 6GB this card is fantastic and is a step up from the 760 i had installed runs great and cool, the temperatures were great and even when the fans kick in the card comes right down in temp i would say this card is great for most new realise games and playing battlefield 1 ultra was great and the card did not struggle one bit. the price is right and if you are looking to upgrade a older card to the new series i highly recommend this card

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Graphics card expensive but well worth the money Very quiet when compared to my old graphics card and when coupled with the smaller power requirements, my rig runs quieter overall. The card is larger than my old card by a third so it required an upgrade of case to house it but that was no problem. Running fallout 4 requires a manual set up as Bethesda hasn't written the ini files to cover the new generations of card yet. But when running Fallout 4 it is so different that I just walked around looking at the light effects of the night sky and you can see how much more processing power is at you finger tips and coupled with cards use of DirectX 12, the card is expensive but I think the money is worth it and if your a gamer then you will see the difference the card makes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality MSI has top cooling. Even in stress (gaming) you can't hear the fans running. Runs Rise of Tomb Raider on ultra settings in 70 fps. Don't think just buy!
Date published: 2016-08-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good GPU I'm really happy with the results from this GPU. Temp is around 50 C
Date published: 2016-08-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional card Looks fantastic. Is ridiculously quiet under load, and I've yet to see it go above 65c even after hours of gaming. Runs everything I've thrown at it with maxed out settings at 1080p, well above 60 fps. Upgraded from an aging GTX 670. The build quality is nothing short of outstanding. It's running flawlessly with my old i7 2600k @ 4.7GHz.
