    [SOLVED] Will GTX 1070 and i7 4790K be enough for 60 fps 1440p ultra gaming?

    Just as the title says. I have a non-overclocked i7 4790K with 16 gigs of DDR3 ram (1600 mhz stock) and looking to get a GTX 1070 for gaming only. I'm not into competitive online gaming (cs go, pubg, etc) so a decent frame rate between 50-60 fps is enough for my eyes not detecting any slowing...

    Makeshift Liquid Cooling for PC?

    Okay, so I dreamt up an idea last night, and I was wondering if it would work.

    Change Kraken X62 to read CPU temp instead of Liquid?

    I've done some reading around recently and heard that the Kraken line of CPU coolers reads the liquid temperatures to modulate fan speed and pump RPM instead of the CPU temperature. I was wondering if it is possible to change this in any way, or if I'm stuck with it. My end goal is to decrease...
