Can it keep the GPU cool enough to run at reasonable temperatures and to allow the GPU to work at the expected clock speeds?

ASUS GeForce GTX 1060 Turbo 6GB Graphics Card Review

by Ryan Shrout |
www.pcper.com
As mentioned throughout the article, the sound output from the ASUS Turbo card is higher than we might like, but it's well within range of other reference designs like the RX 480 and the GTX 1070 Founders Edition.
The motherboard slot is only pulling 60 watts at peak, with the 6-pin connection hitting 64 watts or so.
And again for the graphics card itself, with the front of the GTX 1060 Gaming X 6G identical to the GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 cards, but the lack of an SLI connector is noticed.
The Twin Frozr VI cooler is very efficient, keeping the card both cool, and quiet.
