GTX 1060 Blower or Dual Fan?

Greetings, Im on the verge of buying an 1060. However Im not certain wether to buy a Reference design blower styled cooler. To be specific, this is the GTX 1060 Turbo edition from asus or an aftermarket GPU with an dual fan from EVGA. Specifically the FTW+ edition. I did my fair bit of research, as in where the air comes out, and in which circumstances it should be used. My case would be an carbide 100r with around 2 extra fans.

Thanks <3

  1. Might put one more intake fan in the front if it'll take it but that looks mid-sized enough to support a multi-fan card. My previous card was blower style and I will never do that again - sounds like a jet engine under load. My 3-fan 1070 is near-silent under load.
  2. the 100r supports regular ATX boards.
    any mid tower cases I suggest going for multi-fan designs

    blower cards are only interesting for ITX builds, mini-towers and maybe SLI setups

    A'ight, so I decided to get an Dual OC 1060 from Asus, and my motherboard is an uATX which im going to assume is mATX since its similar size, And I have extra fans. From my research, if I have extra fans by all means I should get the aftermarket cooler.

    it's not uATX it's µATX which is the sign for micro

    it's less about the size of the board or the number of fans as it is about the size of the case.
    but a single 1060 will be fine in that case
