Hello, I had a question about my current motherboard, I bought a pre built pc about a year ago and I want to upgrade. I was wondering if my motherboard is capable of handling a GTX 1060 6gb sc 1 fan, my motherboard model is a G11CD-K. I've googled and couldn't find any info on it.

i would have ordered a 750v psu just to be safe also i would go for evga with atleast 80+b power rating
I ordered a new psu as well (600 watts). My psu is 280watts right now I believe, I don't know the branding. As for my gfx card, I have a 1050 2gb

Hoping this will be helpful, I have GTX 1050 Ti and it doesn't even require a power cable.
(Yup, freaked me out when I opened up the case!)
It is a Dell OEM type card, just a naked PCB with a small bottom fan to look at it.
Having said that, it's still an Nvidia product, with proper architecture, but just bare bones.

The GTX 1060 6gb version you want seems a pretty robust card and the minimum recommend PSU is 400w.
So the 600w PSU you ordered ought to be enough.

However I do agree with austinpinto that more is better, and you won't to go wrong with an EVGA Bronze PSU. Very reliable. But you've already ordered something, and it will be fine.

And you've probably seen all this, but just in case :)
Also see that your motherboard can handle a GTX 1080, all the GeForce 10 series, so I don't see a problem with a GTX 1060 there.

Thanks man, I really appreciate your reply. I actually did order the EVGA Bronze PSU, it came with a deal on newegg today whenever you buy a card you get that completely free, so I couldn't pass up a deal like that.

thanks for the screen shots,
it doesn't seem like your system is overheating, but I wonder if the fan is working at all.
Since you've opened your case, should be easy to tell if the GPU card is actually spinning it's fan.

And did you do a proper uninstall/installation?
By that I mean a proper uninstall of your previous graphics hardware, drivers and all, before you put in the new card.
Again I refer you to The User Guide look at page 8.

But with brand names (like MSI, PNY, EVGA, etc.) you'll often get other software included, which can monitor temps and fan speeds, etc. a benefit of the card's manufacturer.

But what I'm asking is does it all work for you, or are you just worried about the software notifications?

I actually did a little more research and I seen that, the GPU fan will not actually spin up unless I exceed 60C. But yeah everything is all good now I played a match of csgo and the temps stayed around 120-130F, the fans are working just not how I would've thought haha

Well, me neither about the fan my friend, but it seems like every thing is under control.
I too, would have been leery about the "warnings" and I see you've already marked this as "Solved" so I wish you good gaming! :)
