    So just wanted to give feedback on trying to improve thermals on Gigabyte 2070.

    Not sure if it's worth it. The TIM on 2070 seems pretty good to begin with.

    I have OC 210/600 on Afterburner, during Division 2 @ 1950-2050 on core and 7600 on Memory runs around 76C fans @ 60%.

    With the Kryonaut and Arctic Thermal 0.5mm thermal pads (6 w/k) dropped to around 69C.

    Dunno if that would be worth it to you, considering it doesn't thermally throttle at 76C.

    What would make a difference is removing the shroud and replacing the fans with 2 120mm fans. But that would require some soldering since the pins on the 2070 are smaller than the normal fan 4 pin.

    Used Afterburner to limit voltage to 0.975 v. Sits at 1980 mhz w/600 on memory. Temps dodo to 65C. Voltage adjustment is the way to go to reduce temps on Gigabyte.
