I can confirm that the PNY 1060 CG Dell sells fits inside the case perfectly. In fact, it is the exact same dimensions as the PNY GTX 660 that shipped with my x51. Very nearly the same fan case, aside from a slightly larger cutout around the power connector and a couple of stickers. Even still has the cutout for the dual-card connections that the 1060 omits.So glad I found this thread, this is exactly what I want to do. I have R1 with gtx660 330w power
would this 1060 card work?
or this one
Your issue sounds a lot like one I got on my side.How do I fix the CPU Fan Failure problem?
Which kind of 1060 did you get? Was it the Founder's Edition?Installed GTX 1060 easily without modification into an x51 r1 and it locked up on the boot. Installed the same GTX 1060 easily without modification into an x51 R2, and it worked perfectly.
Although my external power supply unit for my x51 R1 is rated for 330W, internally my computer's "printed Wiring Assy,Daughterboard,PWR-BRD,X51,R1" is rated for 240W. I ordered a 45$ "printed Wiring Assy,Daughterboard,PWR-BRD,X51,R2" from Dell, and am waiting for its arrival to see if I can get the GTX 1060 to power up on a R1.
Qcan i use a 1050/1050 ti with a 240w? i have i5 3330 with 8gb of ram and gtx 645
Thank you so much for replying, did you have to buy the 330w power supply or did you keep with the 240w?Can confirm gtx 1060 works in my x51 r1 (original powerboard)
