Does single fan Gigabyte GTX 1060 6GB work fine?

Hi guys I am currently living in Singapore and recently I am planning to build up my rig. You guys should hear about we got a lot cryptocurrency miners here in Asia right? I manage to get the last piece of GTX 1060 6GB in SG market @ a price roughly before mining without much thoughts.

After that when I pause and ponder about the design of the graphic card I bought I was a little bit anxious.(I ain't got enough time to buy the mobo CPU etc. these days) Cuz it does not look like the other graphic cards in the market since there is only one fan. Anyone could share some ideas about is that card gonna work fine or it has a significant difference regarding of performance or temperature? Quite worries cuz i have not set up my rig yet :(

Besides my worries above actually i am planning to get r5-1600 but with only Corsair 2400mhz RAM that I already bought, and i would like to ask does it matter if i do not use a 3000mhz above ram to maximize the performance of Ryzen CPU?

Appreciated for all the answers and discussion!

  1. Yeah will work fine, just have a less good cooler. So will likely run a bit hotter and louder than a dual/triple fan model.

    Thank u so much bro! And would u mind if i asking is there any performance difference between the single/duel fan? Cuz when i checked their spec the duel fan got the core frequency was like 100MHz+ higher than single fan version. I am kind of wondering how many FPS could it be when it comes to real gaming environment. Or between the single fan and duel fan it is just the capability of OC is different? :)

  3. Even with the single fan model you can OC by 100mhz, should be fine.

    The ones with the better coolers may be able to overclock better as they can hold lower temps better.
