    this made me laugh xDDDDD sry for that.
    most graphics-cards today got semi passive-fans. Get into for example FurMark and after your GPU hits 60 degrees, the fans start spinning up ;D
    Or do you have the gtx1060 founders Edition? When you got a founders edition with a blow-style cooler you have a Problem..
    I can help you more when you tell me the exact brand of the Card :P

  2. The fans only spin once the gpu reaches a certain temperature. There's no reason to be worried about the fans unless they don't spin when it's under a lot of load

    I don't really know if it will fix your problem but you definitely need a better cpu and at least 8gb of ram
