It worked and fit my color scheme. Doesn't come with a back plate, but I'm not sure if any 1060s come with them.
Probably overkill, but her PC should be able to handle some video editing (not super intensive).
Looks great, perform amazingly as well.
This thing is a monster. Looks great, stays cool, and truly unleashes it's power on games ESPECIALLY when overclocked. Picked this up for $199.99 on Cyber Monday but ended up getting away with it for 169.99 after mail in rebate! Barely any performance difference between this one and it's 6GB counterpart. GTA 5, BF1, and Fallout 4 all in the 45-60FPS range thanks to this workhorse.
This is a good value video card that focuses on rear exhaust due to the orientation of the fins without the need for a noisy blower-style fan. Excellent performance in gaming, and the Silent profile in the ASUS GPU Tweak software enables the system to maintain 83 degrees maximum under load in a horizontally-oriented Fractal Node 202. Fans are not distracting at all under this profile although you can hear them slightly.
This video card is insane! I'm not sure if I got a lucky card that just loves high clock speeds or if that's just how they come, but out of the box the core clock runs at ~1950 MHz! Spent a few days tweaking and testing it's overclocking capabilities and ended up with a 2113 core clock and a 500MHz boost to memory. Played through Rise of the Tomb Raider on max settings 1080P(with FXAA and Pure Hair) and this card just pumped out solid frames like it was nothing, peaking at 67 degrees after I tweaked the speed curve of the GPU fan(the stock fan speeds had it in the mid-upper 70s). And I played that game for 6-12 hour sessions, so that's the kind of abuse it can handle. As of right now(a month after originally writing this review) I've been playing The Elder Scrolls Online at 5864x1080 using Nvidia Surround. Very impressed with what this card can do.
The fans can get loud when running at high speeds, but that's pretty much any GPU. It's silent when idle and I highly doubt you'll ever hear it over a game.
This is also the ONLY 3GB 1060 that has 2 HMDI ports, which was honestly a big selling point for me because adapters add to the cost of the card.
looks really good but probably the loudest component in the build
I like the color, the two HDMI ports, and the price!
Good card but would recommend a different 1060 3gb. Chose this one because the white matched my color scheme but I believe it isn't the best. Was more expensive than other brands and is very noisy under load. However, it stays cool and is quiet at idle. Gets the job done.
I've had this card in a few builds now, and it will be handed down to a family member before too long. I've played a number of recent games(BF1, Mass Effect Andromeda, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Paragon, Battlefront and more) on it and it plays anything on highest or nearly highest settings when the GPU is the limiting factor. The 3GB of VRAM does mean it will probably become obsolete sooner than similar powered 4GB cards, but with how I've seen this card perform I'm not concerned. The entire GTX 1060/RX 480 line of cards should be delivering good results for a while.
This specific AIB card runs pretty cool and overclocks very well. Over 2.1GHz on the core and 9GHz memory. It also looks nice with any white or monochrome build and isn't overly loud, even with my custom fan curves that are faster than stock.
Upgrading from the integrated graphics of my 2700k, this card was a massive improvement. Has no problem watching netflix, twitch, youtube, etc at 1080p. None of the games I play are that graphically intensive so I can run most of them at the highest settings. Overall, I haven't had this card for long but I'm loving it.
