Today I get to test out a 1060 GTX in my Phenom II x6 system and find out if it will be enough to make modern games playable on my aging PC. The maximum CPU temp from stress testing was 72C\161F, average temp was 65C\147F. You can see it hit 72C on the screen during the Unigine heaven benchmark @ 5:18. Its easy to reduce the max allowed temp with the Extreme Engine but the fan will get a little louder.
