    what to pair with 2070 for 3440x1440

    Yes but if you wait and switch you will have to buy a ryzen cpu, which will be at least $80. So either spend $80 now and $300 later or just spend the $300 now. Or don't change to intel at all. Why do you want to so badly? A ryzen 3000 + motherboard will be cheaper for similar performance.

    If you don't want to have to upgrade your motherboard then ryzen 2000 is your only option. A 2600x will be fine.It may need a bios update. If you want to switch to intel isn't now a good time?

    Do you want a ryzen 3000 chip in the future? Or are you fine sticking with ryzen 2000?

    what to pair with 2070 for 3440x1440

    Ah ok, that's surprising. In that case you could try to find a cheap 1600x if you are planning to get ryzen 3000.

    I would continue using that until the new ryzen cpus come out. It may bottleneck a bit but I don't think it will be too bad. Unless you really don't want to wait, in which case either try to find a deal on a 1600 to last until ryzen 3000 or go for a 2600x/2700x.

    Which one do you have?

    2600X will probably be fine, although it may be a good idea to wait for the new ryzen CPUs, assuming your old CPU still works.

    NZXT Kraken G12 questions

    They're fine normally, but too hot to overclock much. Also very loud.

    NZXT Kraken G12 questions

    Ok thanks, looks like I'll need a lot of splitters. Already using 1 for case fans lol. Is the GPU fan connector a standard size, or do I need to find a specific one?

    NZXT Kraken G12 questions

    It's the EVGA gaming. A reference model. I don't see why using the H55 should perform any worse than the EVGA hybrid model, which performs very well. Have seen people cooling 1080ti's with the H55 and it has worked fine.
  11. I'm planning on getting a G12 and Corsair H55 to cool my 1070ti. I'm hoping this wil allow me to overclock it, as I've heard the 1070ti is a good overclocker. Just have a couple of questions I can't find answers for: How is the pump and fan controlled, are they plugged into the gpu fan controllers or simply controlled by the motherboard? I imagine the latter would be an issue since the motherboard can't react to GPU temps. If the fan gets plugged into the motherboard then how do you tell it to respond to GPU temps? Is the single fan enough to cool the power delivery system?

    upgrade to 24 gb ram

    16GB should be more than enough for normal use. Find out why stuff is using so much RAM.
  13. Ok, good to know thanks. I assume since the standard 1070ti hybrids come with a 120mm I could expect the same performance?
  14. Yeah I know, I was wondering if the hybrid option would be cheaper, although it seems not. If I was to get a g12 + aio, would a 120mm be enough to cool a 1070ti, or would 240 be better?
