MSI GeForce GTX 1060 Gaming X Smiles for Camera
Twin Forzr VI:The MSI GeForce GTX 1060 Gaming X pictures reveal a dual-fan design based on MSI’s Twin Forzr VI cooler. It will use MSI’s TORX 2.0 fans which produce 22% more pressure and 13% more airflow than traditional fans because MSI has used 2 types of fan blades. This allows for cool and silent gaming performance. The fans will stop spinning when the GPU is under 60 degree Celsius. It also features premium thermal compound and a robust heatsink design.
“Two TORX 2.0 fans of superior quality and design will outperform a triple-fan cooler of lesser quality any day of the week.”
