MSI's GeForce GTX 1060 Gaming X 6G clocks in at just 215W power consumption with our entire Core i7-5960X test bed, which isn't too much less than the 250W that the GTX 1080 consumes. But, the GTX 1070 uses only 215W too and is much faster than the GTX 1060 Gaming X 6G.
Still, at just 215W, the MSI GeForce GTX 1060 Gaming X 6G is a power efficient card considering the slight bump in performance over NVIDIA's own GeForce GTX 1060 Founders Edition, which consumes 25W less, at 190W total.
Temperature & Noise
During all of my testing and gaming sessions on the MSI GeForce GTX 1060 Gaming X 6G, the card was running at around 47C average with the fan spinning at around 1200 RPM. It stayed nice and silent, without making noise during heavy loads, which is just the way I like it - and identical to the performance from the GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 from MSI when it comes to acoustics.
The Twin Frozr VI cooler is very efficient, keeping the card both cool, and quiet.
