That's great but buying an aftermarket AIR cooler so you can do the same thing you should be doing with the one you got with the card, especially on a midrange GPU like this, is a horrible waste of time and money AND warranty in some cases.Or.. you can just buy and install an aftermarket gpu cooler and be done with this.
This is what i've done with my Gigabyte 1060 Windforce (because one of the fans died after warranty expired and the other one was making noises), so i decided to buy a new cooler instead of replacing the fans. Besides, the cooler of my Gigabyte card is awful as well.
About 58c Max temp with 100% gpu usage in gaming, with Turbo boost permanently staying betwen 1920-1935ΜΗz. Around 22-23c idle. And 63c in Furmark with post fx enabled.
