@drakengard24
Thanks for the tips. What software do you recommend I use to check CPU temp - and what level is cause for concern?

Glad to help.
 
To monitor all my components I mostly use CPUID HWMonitor, sometimes it gives false reading on new tech, and sometimes it doesn't properly read some components, but thats normal, all software based monitors do that. As for the temps, the GTX 1060 max temp according to nvidia is 94c, something between 65c-75c is desireable, between 75c-80c is warm-hot but ok, GPU's can take a lot of heat, more than 85c is like a NO NO, AT LEAST FOR ME. Just keep it between 60-80c and you are ok.
 
For the CPU, thats a whole 'nother story, CPUs don't tolerate the amount of heat a GPUs does. I can only tell you for sure about AMDs CPUs, due to the extensive testing, benching, OCing experience i have with them. AMD CPUs Max temps vary, 95W CPUs tend to tolerate temps up to 71c and 125w chips up to 61c according to AMD, but they BOTH start throttling at 70-71c XD. For Intel ones, I'm not that experienced with them but i bet some of the guys in these forums, are experts on them, so you might want to ask for another opinion or simply go to Intel's website and check your Processor specs there.

Thanks, I downloaded CPUID HWMonitor. Here is what it said, left = 1 hour for normal PC usage, (web/emails etc..), the right is abut 10mins of DOOM

Those temps while browsing web, emails are perfect for a 0 db/0 % fan. The ones playing Doom looks good, but try to play for more than 30 minutes, 10 minutes of game is not enough to heat up a GPU :P

In my opinion silent mode is very good, but 80 degrees in the stress is too much. EVGA Please !!! make the BIOS - silent at 55 C and 70 C in stress (~1700 rpm) (SC).

I just played World of Warcraft for about an hour and noticed when I took my headphones off that the 1060 SC fan was audible (in my silent pc), it was about 1,000 RPM and temp about 75 or so.
After about 30 secs it had dropped to 55 degrees and fan was silent again.

Can I use the firmware of 1060 SC in the normal version 1060, because I want to get the frecuency of the SC version but by default?
 
Thank you so much!

Can someone dump the original GTX 1060 SC bios for me, please.
 
Google for NVIDIA NVFlash 5.306 (I'm unable to post the link)
 
EDIT: Well, I tried to get EVGA to send me the original BIOS again, this time they sent me the one for the non-SC version.

At stock clocks, the NON-SC Card with maximum performance profile in nvidia, throttles like there is no hope in human kind XD... because it just overheat!! It hits 83c in Witcher 3 easy peasy (the default thermal limit according to msi afterburner and precision XOC) and start to throttles to cool itself down. The cooler in that card is not meant for overclock, hell i'm not sure if it can handle the gpu at stock settings... So if you want the superclocked bios for the normal card i suggest you invest in a cooler... Like the Accelero Mono plus... otherwise with the stock cooler you will get a THROTTLING FESTIVAL. Beware that raising the thermal limit in after burner or precision xoc IS NOT RECOMENDED FOR THAT CARD EITHER... i did, and got to 89c (the card max temp is 94c according to nvidia) in The Witcher 3 (stock clocks) with all settings in high and no hairworks @1080p on a well ventilated case (3x 120mm intake, 2x 140mm exhaust, 1x 200m exhaust)

Really? Because they just told me they didn't even have the original bios available at all. Funny since other people in this thread claim to have received it.

I can only speak for myself, but I definitely had it.


 
I guess we're gonna have to wait for someone to upload it trough GPU-Z (when it updates).

Hi all, I'm jumping on this thread, as I'm quite interested by a 0dB BIOS update.
 
Only, I'm aiming at the 3G version of the card : 03G-P4-6160-KR
 
Is there any planned releases for this 0dB BIOS on this  card ?
 
Thanks,

Could be wrong on this, but i think any cards in production now, including the 3gb, will come with 0db fan bios already installed.

I hope there is a new BIOS soon that addresses the issue of the fan curve being too low without software installed to control it. I wish I could roll back to the previous firmware now - I'd much rather be safer and stable vs quiet and potential damage to the card...
 
Come on EVGA!!!

First, if you're going to insult, at least use proper grammar. It's "an idiot" instead of "a idiot". It just makes you look very uneducated and foolish.
Second, I didn't state my temperatures. Either way, 80C is NOT an okay temperature for a PC being idle. "You're an idiot" if you think that is fine and passable. I've never had a card from any manufacturer that idles less than 45C to 50C because the firmware of the GPU will properly use the fan. The firmware update addressed one issue and caused another; a request to have both working with no new issues caused is not asking too much when it's a $260 product.

if your gpu is idling at 80c then you have a problem
likely a bitcoin miner 
either that or the cooler is falling off the card because there is no possible way that a 1060 will idle  at 80c even with the fan completely stopped 
and yes you are still 'an' idiot

Once again, you fail to read. I even stated my GPU doesn't idle at 80C; I was quoting the random temperature that you typed.
Before the BIOS update, my card idled at 34C which was fantastic. The fan ran constantly which caused unwanted noise. After the update, it idles at 61C to 65C depending on the ambient temperature, which is still too high for idle. Doubling the temperature while is NOT okay after doing a BIOS update to resolve an issue, especially when there isn't an official rollback option. The fan should kick in, cool the GPU, and then slow and turn off. That is how my past two cards (from EVGA mind you) have operated.
 
Keep on with the petty name-calling, badly typed responses, and poor reading comprehension; I'm stating facts from this card and previous generation cards from the manufacturer and the expectations of a reasonable consumer.

you still don't understand why you are an idiot
let me explain it
the gpu idling at 60c is completely acceptable and has no bearing on anything period end of discussion
 
 
if you have trouble understanding why you clearly aren't very educated on the subject 
ASICs pull current and current as we all know is what kills gpus not temperature so its perfectly happy to sit at 60 or 70c at idle and it won't mean a dam thing 
 
but hey since we both know you are too stupid to use precision to set a fan curve and let it run at 25% who am I to question your sound logic 
you my silly little `consumer` are looking for problems where there are none some people value silence over completely meaningless idle temps

You're reading comprehension, grammatical, and punctuation skills fail you yet again; after this response I'm done, as I can clearly see your intelligence level by your English skills.
 
Before I go, I'll break it down in super simple terms so maybe you can comprehend it:
 
1. A BIOS update that solves a problem, yet creates a new one is not a solution.
2. If no solution to the BIOS update is provided, a roll back method (as others too have asked) should be provided so the end user has a choice.
     a. In a mini-ITX case, heat easily spreads and causes other components to heat up, which can cause overclocks that were stable to no longer be stable due to heat.
3. One should not be forced into using a software (Precision) to rectify a hardware issue; see 1.
4. It's not unreasonable for a consumer to expect what previous generations of hardware from the same manufacturer offered - especially when it can be done. Both have been working at different times on this very product.

you don't know how the laws of thermodynamics work do you ... kay then 
 
a card idling at 40c puts out the same amount of heat as one idling at 60c (assuming the load and tdp are the same) 
 
the net heat output doesn't change simply because the fan isn't spinning if anything the rest of the case will be cooler because the fan isn't blowing hot air around and the `heat` will remain isolated in the card as the heat-sink saturates,you might see a momentary spike in temperature as the fan spools up for the first time but the net energy there does not change 
and if you MATX case is heating up enough to be a problem from a 20W heat addition then you obviously don't have any fans in the case 
 
once again you do not know what you are talking about and still think you are right
worst still you are arguing with somebody that does 
 
thats the text book definition of a idiot 
 
1. you can flash back with nvflash / the update isn't `optional` all cards will ship with the update stock of cards with the older bios should be mostly depleted 
 and seriously whining about having to use a utilty that ships with the card to fix a `problem` that doesn't even exist .... I can't process that level of retarded 
and that is the end of you
 
I thoroughly enjoy taking idiots like you down a peg 
 
thanks for playing

Hello, i'm going to flash my evga gtx 1060 card later today with the idle-0db bios, but I would like to have the current bios as backup if I want to revert, can someone here send it to me or can I get it somewhere?  
 
its not the superclocked version but the regular nonoverclocked single fan one,
 
thanks in advance!

80C is perfectly fine for an NV GPU under load. 90C is perfectly fine for an Intel CPU under load. These temperatures will not decrease lifespan in any appreciably manner.

Even if they're not dangerous, the higher temps will still cause the GPU to throttle the clock speeds resulting in slower performance. I ran FireStrike and Valley benchmarks with the default 0db BIOS fan curve and a custom 1:1 fan curve, I'm sure you can guess which one scored higher.

We'll have to wait for GPU-Z to update and to become available Techpowerup's VGA Bios database.
