Thermalright Macho 120 SBM Review

But now we know where these Silverstone fans fit into the 120 mm universe. So let’s get out our telescopes and start looking. Read More

Today we get to take another look at a GTX 1060. This time it is from our friends at Gigabyte. This go around they have sent us their top of the line 1060 in the Xtreme Gaming 6G.
