MSI GeForce RTX 2060 Gaming Z – MSI Brings The Heat For The Mini Turing.

Power, Thermals and Noise


For our thermal testing, we ran Gaming loads rather than a power virus type of load as this represents a far more realistic loading scenario for those looking to see what you can expect when gaming on your new RTX card.

With the custom cooler on the MSI RTX 2060 Gaming Z, there is one thing we have to remember. Unlike other cards we have tested, MSI uses Zero Frozr which means the fans don’t move when below 60C. This means that we had wildly different idle temps even when under stress it took quite a bit before the card even reached 60C to kick the fans on. When it did it hovered barely above 60C never breaking above 63C even after sustained loading.

Thermals while at max overclock only went up 2 degrees reaching 65C.


New Noise

The fan noise for the MSI RTX 2060 Gaming Z was inaudible when it did actually come on. Even under overclocked load, you would be hard pressed to be able to pick out the GPU fan over the quiet 140mm Fractal case fans.
