Can I upgrade my PC from a 1050 TI to a 1060 6G | LENOVO IdeaCentre 710-25ISH (90FB0053NY)

Hey,


PC: LENOVO IdeaCentre 710-25ISH (90FB0053NY)

So I want to upgrade my GTX 1050 TI (single fan) to a GTX 1060 6GB. I would like to install a dual fan (handles heat better) or if that is not supported a single fan. 
My first choice is to buy the MSI GeForce GTX 1060 6GT OCV1 (which is a 2 fan design). My second choice is an MSI GeForce GTX 1060 AERO ITX 6G OC (which is a 1 fan design). Is it possible to go for the MSI GeForce GTX 1060 6GT OCV1? 

Power supply: 400W Platinum
CPU: i5 6400
Ram: 8GB
There is a 6pin available.

The PSU is not a problem, so you just need to measure inside your case to see if the card will fit, but it looks like it would to me.

 

According to NewEgg

 

MSI GeForce GTX 1060 DirectX 12 GTX 1060 6GT OCV1

Form Factor                             ATX

Max GPU Length                    243 mm

Card Dimensions (L x H)      9.57" x 4.53"

With that 400w PSU yes but keep in mind limited to 6-Pin card power needs.

 

And 710-25ISH has lots of room... could fit a 2080 Ti if had the right PSU.

Re: Can I upgrade my PC from a 1050 TI to a 1060 6G | LENOVO IdeaCentre 710-25ISH (90FB0053NY)

Hey,

 

Almost a month ago I installed the GTX 1060 6GB, it works great.

But I opened the case yesterday and saw something strange. It looks like the GPU is bending a little bit. 

I added a photo of the GPU installed. Is this normal? And how can I fix this?

 

Thanks in advanced.

Robin

GPU_bending

 

Yeah looks like the PCB is warped but is it certain to lead to problems no. 

 

Do the card's pins going into PCIe slot look fully seated?

 

How are the tempitures look when using graphicaly intensive software? 

 

To monitor temps and yse can use MSI's Afterburner but GPU-Z can keep a log or even better HWiNFO64 can log all of system's components.

Hey,

 

Thanks for you're quick response. 

 

The temperatures of the GPU while gaming are around the 65 - 75 °C.

When I'm working on homework or watching video's the temperatures are around 30 °C.

 

The pins are connected correctly. 

 

Robin.

Well that all sounds good and I would not worry about it.. just looks bad.

 

Edit: If all is working well do not try to correct the the shape of the PCB.

Remove the remaining PCI slot covers, and monitor the temps when gaming.  Long term you can buy some ventilated PCI slot covers.

Look at any of the standard shape cases from companies like Corsair, you'll see that all have ventilated PCI slot covers: 

 

Corsair - mid-tower cases
