Overclocking & Temperatures
GPU Tweak II
To switch modes on the ASUS GTX 1060, I used GPU Tweak II. In this program, you can choose between 4 modes for your graphics card. The modes are OC mode, Gaming mode, Silent mode and User mode for custom settings. The card comes factory set in Gaming mode. I ran all my benchmarks in OC Mode with a clock speed of 1847 MHz. There are also graphs to the left to monitor everything from GPU core clock, voltage memory clock, fan speed and more. The Gaming booster optimizes your system by setting the system for the best visuals, killing the Windows services and processes and even defragging system memory. There is also an advanced mode where you can manually tweak everything on your GPU.
The ASUS GTX 1060 9 Gbps hit a max speed of 2145 MHz.
For being a small card, I had expected higher temps that I recorded. The ASUS GTX 1060 hit a max temp of 70°C while overclocked to 2145 MHz.
