Hello, I could not find any similar threads, so I thought that I would make one.
I am Curious of what clocks, temps, power drown etc, you achieved on your 1060 cards.

I am using a GTX 1060 ASUS STRIX,

using Afterburner, I have clocked my card to a stable 2139MHZ on the Core and 4354MHz on the memory. that with a GPU top temp hit of 61 C, on a max peak hit of 47% fan speed. this was after about an hour of testing on Heaven and valley benchmark. I always monitor my system and 62 Celsius is the Absolut the highest temp I have seen on the card. Using the stock strix cooling system. custom fan curve places it around 40-45% under load, and that is a good place, everything above 50% starts to generate noise.

fun fact, the card is an OC edition, so I just punched in a core +150 on AB expecting it to crash when I got the card last fall, it has actually never crashed on me all this time.

what do you think of the OC? how are you clocking your 1060?

Hi , i'm a proud owner of a new Gigabyte Windforce GTX 1060 6 GB variant that i purchased a few weeks ago after my 7950 served me well for over 4 years straight and decided to put it to rest. I'm using with the following platform mentioned below in my signature. My card didn't get past 74 c.

Here's my system configuration :

I'll post in this thread my configuration as well :

CPU: AMD FX 8150 @ 3,3 Ghz ( undervolted to 1.175 vcore)
Motherboard: AsRock 970 Pro3 R2.0
Cooling: Zalman Reserator 3 Max
RAM: Kingston HyperX Fury Black 4x4 GB DDR3 @ 1600 Mhz
GPU: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 6GB Windforce, [email protected]/[email protected] / SAMSUNG Quantum Dot Monitor C24FG70FQU, 23.5" Curved, Full HD 144hz
Case: Zalman Z3 Plus
PSU: Inter-Tech Energon 750W Power Supply
Storage: Intel 540s Series 240GB SATA-III 2.5 inch , 1x Western Digital Blue 500 GB , 1xSeagate 500 GB
OS: Windows 10 Pro
Peripherals : Keyboard: Logitech Orion G810 , Mouse : Logitech G303 Daedalus Apex , Headsets : Kingston HyperX Cloud Core

I used Gigabyte's native Xtreme Gaming Engine with the following results and seems that i gained 10+ fps on average using Tom Clancy's The Division integrated benchmark. I did not expect that much, mine has Hynix memory, i wish that i'd get one with Samsung, but it ended well i suppose. I also want to get it past its previous OC profile , but i think it doesn't make any sense , cause i won't get any significant gains at all , so i'll stick with these settings.

Here's my profile and GPU-Z screenshot attached :

I have the evga gtx 1060 ftw+ 6gb card. My setting are

core voltage--+0
power limit-- +120
core clock--- +110
mem clock--- +300
fan speed---- 80%
Temp running heaven is about 53c---30+ minutes.

The core is stable at 2139 and mem at 4303. When I 1st got this card I also used my 960 for physx and my 1060 would not oc no matter what I tried. So I removed the 960 and no more problems.

Edit: Decided to play around with the oc some more, here is what I've tried.

Tried a few different core clocks, decided to stay with +110 (2139 mhz) +120 Didn't really help, +130 heaven scores dropped, +140 driver crash.

Now for the mem, +300 was ok (which is what I started with) +400 better, +500 better, +600 (4608 mhz) so far so good. But for the night this is where I am stopping. So only changing the mem clock running 3d mark skydiver, I went from a score of 23988 to 27335 and the temps are staying around 55c. That's with the fan at 100% and no crashes.
