Hello, I am trying to decide between these two ASUS GTX 1060 6GB cards. One has a fan-blower cooler, and the other has an open-fan cooler. (I am aware how each one operates: the fan-blower draws air out the back, and the open-fan one spews it into the case.) Basically, I want the quietest experience possible, but I also don't want to heat up my machine and cause the PCI fan to go crazy. I was thinking about the fan-blower type of cooler, given that it draws the heat out the back (and that's probably the type of card that a Mac Pro is supposed to be using); however, they are apparently much louder. Also, I currently have a an ASUS GTX 660, with ASUS open-fan cooler, and I don't have heat issues. The PCI fan goes up a little bit, but not THAT much. I basically don't hear the card itself. If the GTX 1060 outputs the same amount of heat or LESS than the 660 does, then I'll just get the open-fan type, since I have had no heat issues. BUT, if the 1060 does output more heat, maybe I just accept the possibly higher noise levels and get the fan-blower cooler. Any ideas? Thanks, MDD EDIT: I realize that I asked this about two years ago, and, from within, MacVidCards mentioned that there is still a good amount of area from which air can escape out of the Mac Pro. I think an open-fan-style card wouldn't be such a bad idea, even though it means more hot air entering the PCI lane. That intake fan keeps that hot air moving anyway, so it's not as though it's sitting there and being allowed to rise. So, open-fan ASUS GTX 1060? I think it will be cool enough and definitely quieter than a fan-blower-style 1060. Would others agree?
