Hello, I know that fans dont spin till they hit a certain temperature but my GPU would hit to degrees of like 80-100 to the point my game starts freezing every 2 seconds and the fan still doesn't start up. right now I have a fan blowing air onto the GPU from the outside and it definitely cools it down and helps with the game freezes but its super loud, I have tried using msi afterburner to manually control the speed of the fan and still doesn't spin. Do I need to buy a gpu fan or something?

Try reinstalling the driver. And what the brand of GTX 1060 ?
