To overclock the GTX 1060 GAMING X we used MSI Afterburner Tool (4.3.0 Beta 4) since it gives extensive options for modifying the GPU and memory clock.
Overclocking the card was easy and we managed to boost the GPU and memory clock beyond the factory overclock applied by MSI. Our result took the GPU clock up to 1729MHz (1945MHz Boost). Pushing the card a little further meant we were able to receive a higher score in Unigine Heaven 4.0 which is shown below.
This is certainly a significant increase; therefore, others should be able to take advantage of a slight performance increase – without taking having a colossal effect on temperatures.
