It's the mini version, it's only supposed to have 1 fan. Where exactly would you propose putting another?

See the temperatures section of this review to learn that thermals really need not concern you.

Also, the price seems really good, especially considering the state of the graphics card market at the moment. Can you find a 1060 cheaper? This also has the added bonus of comfortably fitting in mini ITX cases like mine.

What a whinger honestly. It's the worst when these people are clueless and embarrass themselves.

Hot, good deal and ideal for fulfilling niche build purposes.

lol, i deleted my comment realising it was acc not that bad, one of them things when u look over your comment and realise, damn i wrong the price is good, im just not into buying a single fan model for the price. I didnt say the deal was cold, i just said it wasn't a 'bargain', maybe we have differing meanings of what a bargain is compared to a good deal...

Everyone can have an opinion. Personally this isn't great. A 3gb 1060 is only about 10% faster than a 1050ti. The 6gb 1060 is the faster card. Also the guy is right about the age. Looks like new cards will be less than 6 months away. £200 is a lot to spend on a card near its end of lifecycle.

" A 3gb 1060 is only about 10% faster than a 1050ti. "


Naw
A 1060 3GB is over 30% faster than the 1050 Ti
Does this draw power just from the board or does it need additional power?

Looks like it has a little 6pin jobbie in the corner from the pics. Not sure if you can get a direct power one of the 1060. Can the 1050Ti though, I'm sure i've seen one.
Single fan cards are fine. Cards pull a lot less power than they used to, on smaller dies and with far better cooler solutions.
I run a 6GB 1060 EVGA SC Gaming and never had an issue with it.
Where as a dual fan Zotax AMP edition 1080 was like a tornado and always ran hot in a similar cased machine.
I have the 1050Ti and it's decent enough. I mostly play siege, I can't get top settings and retain 60fps, but it does use all of the 4gb of ram. So for that game at least I'd be conscious of 3gb limit. I very much doubt the 1060 is 30% times fast when it comes to frame rate etc (personally, I wouldn't consider upgrading to anything less than a 1070.)

The 1050Ti takes its power from the motherboard and I have a very lowly PSU and all works as well as can be expected.
Probably a good card right at this moment in time, not that I would be getting it with things round the corner. And sure, there’s always something round the corner but it is due a replacement. The 3GB cards aren’t in demand by crypto but you probably have high prices off the back of the other cards and the memory shortage.

I understand that point about single fans but it is a mini card as you all said. Just that I had a spate of Mini/ITX card fan failures and you are a bit stuck when that happens. I have a R9 Nano (Fury) that is on the verge of fan failing. It just depends on the quality of the fan as well. Turns out Sapphire’s ITX fans are total **** (but their Pulse and Nitro ones seem decent) and Gigabyte also fit rubbish ones.
I've got the 6GB version of this and it's a great little card, but really wouldn't want to go for the 3GB one.

Temps are fine (58 degrees in furmark in a not especially well ventilated mitx case) and noise levels are fine. I ended up turning into a bit of a Zotac fanboi due to the quality of my 1060 and got a 1070ti mini for my main PC.

Thanks. I have the 1050ti now but nowhere to plug a 6 pin connector in my current board/power supply.

If your PSU doesn't have a 6 pin connector, it probably wouldn't provide enough amps on the 12V rail anyway.
Though if you want to chance it (unwise) molex to 6pin adapters exist.

Also upgrading from a 1050ti to a 1060 3GB isn't worth the expense.

Disagree. Gtx 1050ti -> gtx 1060 is totally worth it.

Reasons:
GTX 1060 is kind of the minimum acceptable graphics card for next generation gaming (4k and VR). This will make it future proof for several more years. The 1050ti simply can't do VR or 4k acceptably.

Some will complain that the 3GB of this card will stop it doing 4k or VR acceptably but this is false. If the memory is bottle necking you can turn down texturing but VR is optimised for 3GB as this is considered the minimum spec. I'd even argue the 1060 is a good 1080p card so 4k is not even an issue as well.
since this is only £10/12 cheaper than elsewhere I cant say its much of a bargain.
Y'all are talking like the only difference between a 1060 6GB and 1060 3GB is the amount of VRAM. While not an unreasonable assumption, THIS IS NOT THE CASE.

The core and SM count is ~10% less on the 1060 3GB compared to the 1060 6GB.

GeForce GTX 1060 3GB: 1152 Shader Processors, 72 Texture mapping units, 9 streaming multiprocessors.

GeForce GTX 1060 6GB: 1280 Shader Processors, 80 Texture mapping units, 10 streaming multiprocessors.

That said, I think this is a good deal and I've added heat. If you're building a small gaming box, especially if you're looking for value (or only play eSports, OW PCMR represent) this is a perfectly reasonably choice.
