Overall Review: Got lucky and got this card from the shuffle! It arrived quickly and seemed to be packaged well. Once I got it set up I ran some benchmarks, under full load this card runs just shy of 70C which is pretty good for a single fan card! During normal gaming sessions I hit anywhere between 40-60C. I upgraded from a GTX 1660 so this is a pretty nice upgrade at not too bad of a markup. Overall I would recommend this card for someone looking to get into ray tracing (if you can get your hands on one of course!) The single fan will naturally lend itself to higher temps but with a good airflow setup they should be perfectly manageable.
Overall Review: Works as expected. Takes up 3 slots since it is short and thick. Single cooling fan is more than capable of keeping the card cool and is fairly quiet even at full speed. Decent over-clocking headroom as well. Even though my build is a mid-tower ATX, this card is better optimized for smaller cases. Overpriced, but that's par for the course these days.
Pros: Never had an issue with ASUS Works exactly as it should
Cons: This cards fan is Loud and annoying even at idle. Fan cannot be lowered past 30% on any application
Overall Review: Would recommend if you don't care about fan noise
Pros: Great little card, installed as easy as it gets, windows recognized it needed the platform and drivers, bam, update in the experience and send it. 12600k, gigabyte mitx ddr4, 32gb Forza 3600, 700w EVGA, cooler master 240mm aio
Overall Review: Great
Pros: - Works reliably - Reaches 60 fps at 1080p in most games when paired with a high-end CPU
Cons: - Costs too much for a graphics card that is only a couple times faster than the 9-year old model it replaced - Fan noise is annoying whenever the card is used for 3D - Fat, this card should be a single-slot design
Overall Review: This card is overpriced. ASUS has put little of value into this 3060 model and the single-fan design may actually make it worse. It's called a "Gaming" card which I suppose is due to its single-digit, unnoticeable overclock. Yet the fan runs too fast under any simple 3D load and is definitely not quiet. Not good for immersive gaming. I would have returned the card except Newegg Shuffle policy disallowed returns. My opinion is buyer beware with this model, it's a poor value decision.

Pros: I could buy it. It's a 3060. "Butter smooth" gameplay, the 30XX series cards are really a step up. Low power draw.
Cons: Only one fan. So far not a problem.
Overall Review: Won the Newegg lottery and purchased this card. Sent it to my nephew to replace his 1060, this is way more card! It matches nicely with the Ryzen 7 5700G I sent him some time ago. Very pleased with the card and the purchase experience from Newegg.
Overall Review: Fits on small tight fits!
Pros: 3060 Newegg Shuffle
Cons: Single fan
Overall Review: Card remains very cool and works like a champ.
Pros: - Fits in very small systems - 60+ FPS at 4K High with DLSS Balanced - Was able to get my card to 107% on User Bench Mark - Card stays below 75 degrees at full load (Typically 70) - Never cap out on V-Ram in games - The Card is Quiet - Low Power Draw - Ray-Tracing seems to be quite good - Great Heat Sink - Back Plate
Cons: - The shroud is low quality - Very Basic design - Not visually pleasing - Super Thick, have to use uppermost PCI-E slot - Fan exhausts into case
Overall Review: - I would definitely recommend this card to anyone with a small case. - With the High V-Ram, this card would be great for Workstation applications.
Pros: Silent Cool Fast Affordable
Cons: Fan died after only 6 months use. This is the second "Phoenix" graphics card by ASUS I have owned in the year 2022 (Originally bought a Phoenix 1650 in Feb 2022). The fan failed on the 1650 Phoenix last month in my other system and JUST TONIGHT the fan died in my 3060 Phoenix!!!! I still haven't got my 1650 back from ASUS yet!!! I have used ASUS products for YEARS!! These Phoenix series of cards must use the cheapest fans on the market or something because that is 2 different Phoenix series cards in under 6 months each!!! Not happy at all.
Overall Review: Love ASUS but will not purchase the Phoenix brand of cards ever again.
