The next stage up in ASUS 1060 graphics cards is this, the Strix Gaming OC. This gaming card is aimed toward those that want all they can get from their GPU, and with higher base speeds (compared to the Strix 1060) that can be overclocked, the 1060 OC does just that. The embedded power will create immaculate gaming experiences on even the latest next-gen games. Plus, thanks to the featured tech and clever design you can be sure this GTX 1060 will run smoothly even on those extended gaming sessions.
DirectCU III GPU Cooling Tech
The GTX 1060 will achieve up to 30% extra cooling performance when gaming thanks to the exclusive DirectCU III cooling technology. This tech featured on the GTX 1060 direct-GPU contact heat-pipes that will transport more heat away from the GPU and out-perform the reference designs.
Triple Wing-Blade GPU Cooling
DirectCU III features triple 0dB fans engineered with a patented wing-blade design that delivers maximum air flow and improved 105% static pressure over the heat sink, while operating at 3X quieter volumes than reference cards. The 0dB fans also let you enjoy games in complete silence and make DirectCU III the coolest and quietest graphics card in the market.
GPU Controlled Fan Headers
When gaming it is commonly found that GPU temperatures are higher than that of the CPU, due to chassis fans usually referencing CPU temps only - resulting in inefficient cooling. The Strix 1060 graphics card features two 4-pin GPU controlled headers that can be connected to system fans for targeted cooling on your GTX 1060.
ASUS 1060 Aura RGB Lighting
ASUS Strix 1060 features Aura RGB Lighting on the shroud, these Strix graphics cards are capable of displaying millions of colors in six different effects. Experience a personalized gaming system with GTX 1060.
A More Reliable GTX 1060
This 1060 series, like various other ASUS boards, has had premium alloy components intergrated into their graphics card designs reinforcing the overall reliability. Super Alloy Power II components greatly enhance the Strix 1060 efficiency, reduce power loss and achieve thermal levels that are approximately 50% cooler than previous designs.
