Palit RTX 3060 StormX OC Review

For our temperature testing, we measure the peak GPU core temperature under load. A reading under load comes from running Cyberpunk 2077 for 30 minutes.

As for thermals, the StormX OC runs surprisingly cool. I thought it would run hotter, certainly into the high 70s, but out of the box the GPU peaked at just 69C, while the hot spot hit 80C. Yes, this does make it the hottest-running RTX 3060 we’ve tested, but it’s also by far the smallest, and either way, 69C is still a great result.
