After testing the other two in 1060, one from MSI and EVGA from the choice fell to the end of this d. What a difference!
The primary difference is that this card is quiet when others in 1060 is 40% fan speed in idle so this card is passively up a 60grader. I have not during normal play got the fans on the card to go on, nor has the temperature reached over 50grader. Even when the fans go they will do it very quiet and pleasant.
Performance-wise, there is nothing to speak of, it performs like a 1060 will. Newer games in 1080p is no problem at all.
As the previous reviewer said the card is heavy. Even in my chassis falters card noticeably dissolved easily with little McGyver mindset and tie :)
Following even with a backplate to the card, bonus points for the MSI! There is little LED lights that can be adjusted in intensity / color / pattern for anyone who is interested and has a chassis where it is visible. Also bundled software is good and easy to handle.
A star deduction for the VRAM is located on 3 / 6GB. I would have preferred that the step was 4 / 6GB alt 4 / 8GB. So at least 4GB of entry-level model.
TL; DR. If you want a quiet and powerful 1060, buy this!
Got this card as a replacement when NetOnNet careless with my order of EVGA 1060 3GB Superclocked. EVGA card is higher clocked according to spec, but this board seems to have even better cooling. Luckily got it to the computer. Had not put out money from EVGA SC 1060 3GB and this card.
The card weighs some as you look into the chassis, you see that it is a little bent slightly under its own weight - powerful but a little scary.
No problem with drivers or else. Wonderfully it quiet for 60 degrees (the fans go on after that).
Bought the card to get a better experience in BF1, and I play on ultra and get 60 fps (which is most of my screen), which is impressive. My processor is slightly older, I7 2600K 3.4 GHz from 2011, but it seems to be going just fine. MSI GeForce GTX 1060 is quiet in both idle and in games. GPU is very affordable and recommended.
