Overlocking

MSI ARMOR GeForce GTX 1060 3GB OC Edition Review

The MSI ARMOR GeForce GTX 1060 3GB OC Edition already comes with new GPU Boost 3, which automatically push the card as far as it can get and it also factory overclocked, but users can overclock it even further using MSI Afterburner. For my Overclocking I manage to get +40 on core clock which translates into 1584 MHz base clock and 1799 MHz boost, but thanks to GPU Boost and power and cooling headroom because of MSI’s custom design the card boosted up to 1835 to 1850 MHz.
