Hi all,
I have a R9 390X and I'm looking at cooling it with a G12 Kraken mostly for reducing the noise coming out of the beast, she runs hot and is power hungry.
Few questions:
  1. Is it worth it?
  2. I see on the G12 specs that some R9 390X cards require a copper sheath, do I need this and if so what is it?
  3. I've also seen posts on cooling the VRAM and VRM with heatsinks, where can I acquire these?
  4. Would this reduce the dB's significantly?
  5. Which AIO cooler would be best for this?
  6. Should I just go balls to the wall and go full liquid cool with a GPU block?
  7. Or should I throw in the towel and get a RTX2070
That's more than a few really...
Thanks in advance.
