Yeah, it's because GPU-Z is still unable to backup GTX 1060's bioses (and also other features).

I also like to point out that my Precision X OC does not recognice my GTX 1060 as EVGA, therefore no k-boost or other features avaible to me. AMD motherboard here also. So no bios update either.

Please do not forget about us EVGA! I really want to have that zero-fan mode.

This is a known issue with AMD boards, we are looking into ways of fixing that, though a BIOS update to the board may solve the hardware identification issues.

I don't think my motherboard manufacturer is gonna release a bios update for my 7 years old motherboard :(

What kind of temps is everyone getting while gaming with the 1060 SC? At stock settings I hit low to mid 70s but if I put it in aggressive fan mode via precision software it goes into 50's/low 60s

Load 73, Idle 36 (fan at 48% when idle).
Stock BIOS and settings with ambient of 30.
 
I have no intention of changing to the 0 dB BIOS as the cooler fan is silent even on load.  All I hear is low frequency wind sound.

I think that the parameters of the old bios in stress and parameters of the new BIOS without stress. It's the perfect solution for EVGA 1060. Quiet and cool  for a good reputation.

yes, 83ºC is definitely a bit too much.
 
Make sure your case a decent air-flow

Is it? My normal 1060 gets to be 83 playing Warcraft and Overwatch. Normal and 0DB Bios. Makes no difference.

Re: EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 BIOS Update (Single Fan Models Only) 2016/08/29 10:12:22 (permalink)
i hope EVGA release a new bios update which actually gives us a choice of if we want 0DB or not as i prefer have my fan running even if it at 20% on idle as i cant hear it, it gets upto 80c way to quickly and even on 80c the fans only at 45%
 
was told by evga to use the software to make my own curve... but why the older bios was fine for me yes the fan idle at 45% but surely a new bios that runs it at 20% is better than nothing, least the card sits cooler and has air flow instead of none at all and just sitting there getting hot until 60c

There is currently a bug with AMD (motherboards) that may not allow the flash to complete properly. We are looking into it.




Not in reference to this just wanted to get your attention but do these also apply to the GTX 1060 3GB or will there be new/separate BIOS files for that one?

Re: EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 BIOS Update (Single Fan Models Only) 2016/08/30 12:33:34 (permalink)
well got to say thank you EVGA i had a zip file sent to me with two files "fan on" and "fan stops" so can now choose and do tests on which prefer.
 
so far i am gonna use the older bios, the card now sits nicely on idle at 33'c and during gaming the fan doesn't ramp up anymore, also i like fact if do heavy benchmarks on the card the fan is more aggressive and keeps the card alot cooler, less throttling woop woop
 
as the card is in my nightblade mi2 pc it has helped alot for a small case when comes to heat
 
thank you EVGA very happy

Is that zip file for the SC version or non-SC?
 
Also, could you share it with me, please?
 
Thank you.

it for the SC version as they linked it to my serial / bios as to send me the right one for that card so it didn't end up bricking it.
 
not sure if i can share it till someone from EVGA on here confirms it will work with any the SC cards as dont want it bricking any peoples cards

Anyone with a newer card that has a 0dB fan BIOS who would prefer to have an always-on fan BIOS, please contact us directly at support@evga.com, and provide the BIOS revision off the back of your card so we can get you the proper version. Flashing the wrong one could potentially brick your card, so I caution against sharing the files with each other.

MajorDuffus this is why i didn't want to share the bios i got, as for someone like yourself who knows what they doing this is fine, but if someone downloaded my shared zip for the wrong version /rev then there card could end up bricked.
 
but its ok EVGATech_JaesonW will help you find the correct bios like he did for me, thanks once again jaeson

Hi, JaesonW, I have been trying to get a "always-on fan" BIOS trough support for 2/3 weeks now and they have been sending me the wrong BIOses, is there any other way I can get the BIOS?
 
Thank you.

For 3 weeks this has been going on.
 
The reading comprehension of your support team is something amazing, really.
 
Here's what I sent your support team:

i can use SC bios for the normal one? im will use watercooling and i want to boost the frequency. Both are reference design?
Thanks



Yeah, do it at your own risk though. You need nvflash 5.306 & need to override the PCI subsystem ID. I also manually disabled the display driver before flashing. After reboot windows reinstalled the driver like it was a new card in the system. I uninstalled the driver & removed any old device installs from device manager & downloaded the newest driver, 372.70 WHQL directly from nvidia & did a custom -> clean install & updated precision x oc to 6.0.5.
 
I'm not using the stock cooler on my card so I thought I'd put the SC firmware on it but after flashing the SC firmware to my non-SC card, it is not only running at the faster default speed but the temps dropped even more.
 
I didn't understand how that could be at first but then I noticed the max fan speed is a couple hundred RPM higher than the non-SC firmware.

How is it that some of you are getting EVGA to cough up the original BIOS but I am having no such luck. My ticket is still open and I am stressing out as BestBuy only offers a 14 day return policy.

You are not the only one Kluto (bear in mind this applies to the NON-SC version) The card overheats and reach the thermal limit of 83c (limit set in the bios by evga so the card down clocks aggressively. The max thermal limit of the chip is 94c) This takes more time to happen with the default power management in nvidia control panel... Use the "full performance mode" and this will happen almost instantly in demanding games... The heatsink on the NON-SC version can't handle the 1060 GPU... Anyone saying otherwise is either, living on Alaska in the outside, using the fan in 100%, playing light games like Borderlands (1,2,PS), Dark Souls 1,2, CS:GO (Games that don't stress this gpu greatly), or just LYING.
 
I already tested the card on 3 different builds and in all 3 the card reaches 83c... all 3 builds where massively ventilated, and the 4th test was on a open bench (HAF XB). The game for the test was, The Witcher 3 (Ultra settings, hairworks off) (Even on HIGH settings the card reach 83c)
 
Solution: Use an insanely ridiculous aggressive fan curve of like 85%+, Use an Artic Accelero Mono Plus (I know I know x.x dishing out more money for something is plainly bad design and not your fault) or if you are in the return window, just return the card and buy another model with better cooling.
 
P.S. EVGA will do NOTHING for you, even if they say "contact costumer service we will fix your problem bla bla" They will only offer to RMA the card for exactly the same model, which will have the same problems because it's the same lame heatsink or just tell you to return or exchange the card on the place you bought it... NOTHING ELSE!! How do i know? I was one of the people who got tricked with this card LOL... Lesson learned.

the 83C thing happens to me as well but is it really a problem? It doesn't seem to be effecting performance much. The games I currently play is Warcraft Legion and Overwatch. Both within minutes will cause it to reach 83C

In some games the throttling can cause stuttering, frame drops and the likes. As for the temps and durability of the card, is probably a no concern, first once it hits 83c it will throttles aggressively to not pass that mark, and second, most people upgrade the gpu before the 2-3 years marks which i think it won't be enough time to cause any damage? Only time will tell... Just enjoy the card, if you feel unsafe with those temps, buy the artic accelero mono plus and done =]

If your playing World of Warcraft Legion at 1080p - 60Hz, your not pushing the card to the limit most of the time. If your CPU is not something like a i5-6600K or i7-6700K @ 5GHz most anytime you see a frame rate drop it will be from the CPU.
 
I play at 2560x1440 - 60Hz, Graphics Quality 10, SSAO Disabled, MSAA 4x, VSync Enabled. Standing in Stormwind in the Trade District, The GPU is at 51% 60fps, but 98% usage on 1 thread of my i7 3930k @ 4.2GHz. At peak hours it will drop under 60fps as that thread fully maxed out while the GPU usage will drop even more.
 
In the new higher detail Legion zones the GTX 1060 stays more around 70% usage while the CPU still stays near 100% on one thread most of the time. Though in the new Dalaran I'm only seeing 42% GPU usage to keep 60fps right now.
 
At high settings & resolutions, WoW is a very single thread CPU hungry game.

I game on a 5820K @ 4.4Ghz paired with an Acer Predator G-Sync monitor @ 1440 / 144Hz.
 
Now that you mention it I have an issue with Overwatch where my frame rate is above 80 but it feels like its below 60. I didn't think it could be the temperature as I had seen this video where he states that these cards are meant to run at 83C - on purpose. After re-reading whats been said and watching his video again I will give my card a higher fan curve and see what it does for me. 
 
 
[edit]
I would seem that the Overwatch problem is tied to the 10 series cards as outlined here: http://us.battle.net/foru...pic/20748596799?page=2
