Advanced GTX 1060 Cooling
system is the outcome of both clever and efficient design. It features two 90mm fans that spin in alternate directions, have a unique blade design and are 3D active fans with an RGB LED status indicator. Alternating fans reduces air turbulence increasing dissipated heat.
INTELLIGENT GRAPHICS CARD FANS
GIGABYTE 1060 Unique Fan Blades
The GTX 1060 airflow is spilt by it’s triangle fan edge, which is then guided smoothly through the 3D stripe curve on the fan surface, effectively enhancing the GIGABYTE Gaming 1060 airflow by 23% over traditional fans.
Heat Pipes Help With Cooling the GPU
The Gaming 1060 features Direct Touch technology. This tech as seen above utilizes heat pipes made of pure copper and are shaped to maximize the direct contact area to the 1060’s GPU so they can carry generated heat away from your GPU. This keeps your gaming and media going for longer and displaying as smooth as can be.
Composite Heat-Pipes Embedded 1060
Through a combination of thermal conductivity and phase transition the Gaming GTX 1060 efficiently manages the transfer of heat between two solid interfaces - which increases 29% of cooling capacity.
Added Style of the GTX 1060 Card
When it comes to the LEDs featured on the G1 Gaming 1060 they are there for both style and convenience. Firstly, the GIGABYTE logo will simply make your graphics card and PC case (through ambient lighting) look that bit more suave and will follow whatever instructions you have set it.
