GTX 1060 single or triple fan?

Hi guys!

I'm wondering if it was worth it to get a single fan EVGA GTX 1060 over an ASUS Strix triple fan (both are 6gb versions). Will the temps differ much, and more importantly, will performance differ much?

Before anyone starts spraying me with recommendations (which is what i'm always guilty of doing when I disagree with a choice), my first choice was actually an RX 580, but since they aren't available anywhere anymore in the Netherlands (where I live) because of Ethereum Mining, I might buy a GTX 1060 6GB. But who knows? Maybe when i'm going to be buying my GPU the RX 580 will be back in stock again.

If it helps, here are my parts:

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 1600
Mobo: MSI B350 Tomahawk
RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16gb total (4x4)
PSU: Corsair RM550X
Case: Phanteks Enthoo Pro M

Anyway, if you have an answer or a suggestion, feel free to tell me.

    You're probably better off just waiting, but the Strix will keep cooler, and the EVGA will use less power.

  2. Are you even able to find a 1060? There is a huge GPU shortage going on for mid-range cards.

    Apparently not in the Netherlands. Literally every GTX 1060 has a delivery time of 3 days or less, and the biggest hardware store in the Netherlands has more than 50 in stock for every 1060.
