ADVANCED GTX 1060 COOLING
The WINDFORCE 2X 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.
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.
LED INDICATOR FOR 1060 POWER
The G1 Gaming 1060 card is equipped with an LED just above your 8-pin slot to indicate voltage stability issues. When the PCI-E voltage is unstable you’ll have no trouble discovering it as the LED will light up. When the LED is on the power is disconnected, when it is off the power is stable and if it is flashing then the 1060 is experiencing an abnormal power supple.
