Asus GTX 1060 ROG Strix OC Review - Should You Buy?

The Asus ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1060 OC is the perfect graphics card for 1080p gaming - but is the overclock and triple-fan cooler enough to warrant the £300/$330 asking price? Or are the GTX 1070 and RX 480 better options?

    Playing csgo in highest graphics. Using only 12 % of the card with i7-7700

    How do I make the colors on it change?

  • MicahSurf

    Anyone who has the NZXT h400i and was wondering if this would fit besides it’s length not being compatible with the case, it will. You have to take off one of the front fans while installing (re install fan once 1060 is in) there is about a inch clearance between the card and the fan.

  • RedCade

    How much quicker will it break then if it was not overclocked?

  • Spetsnaz Kitten

    *he pointed at the opposite ports

  • Sparxo

    This graphics card is tech porn in component form

  • Benediktas

    lol price in my country is 500 euros

  • Dr. Tiggy

    No shit it's too expensive. This thing is creeping up on 400 euros in Serbia, with no drop in sight. It's absolute insanity. An American is 5 times richer than a Serb on average, yet he can get this for a bit over 300 US DOLLARS, not euros, *dollars*. Similar situation in most of Europe really, but it hits the hardest in lower standard countries like mine. Fuck this world.

  • Flighted

    and there are single fan gtx 1070s lmao

  • funny PFFF

    Does r5 1600 paired for this 8gb ddr4??

    "It's about 11 inches. Just about as long.." missed opportunities my man.. Missed opportunities. Great video. Just bought this.

  • Elemental FIRE

    You don’t have the oc

  • Chiken Nugger

    I have one of these and it works great. When overclocked I can play most games at 1080p max settings with 60fps.

  • dead .dead

    Hi, this card has 2 hdmi ports..that means i shouldn't face any issues connecting 2 monitors with hdmi port. Correct me if im wrong. Thanks

  • Irie Islo

    The reason this card has a good potential exceeding the boostclock is simply because it has the 1080/1070 chipset

  • Tsuni N

    Also note the 1060 version doesn't have a rgb back plate like the 1080 and 1070

  • Woodland Spirit

    is this still worth buying today? considering upgrading from a gtx 960 2g to this. my motherboard is a z97 gaming 5, processor i5 4690k.

  • fawl je baguette

  • Chechen Borz

  • Jaacckkko

  • LuqazDJ

    I am currently using a gtx 950 strix 2gb. Worth the upgrade? I plan on gaming on 1080p.

  • fawl je baguette

    So I'm ordering a i5 8600k and I'm looking for GPU, I'm trying to decide which is better, ASUS STRIX 1060 6gb or an ASUS STRIX RX 580 8gb. Any suggestion?

    Hello there, did you overclock it when you were testing it (more than it was originally overclocked) if so, what settings?

  • Garos97 HUN

  • Wilson Tong

    When I got this, I was like, I can’t afford a 1070 because it was at the time when the 1070 prices were jacked up, so I’ll just get the best 1060

  • Saadov

  • RetroX
