Hi guys, I'm a little worried about my RTX 2070 super, the highest temp I got is on Sea of Thieves it sits around 80°C and the maximum is 83°C do you think it's normal? I also wanted to replace my fans (now I have the Sharkoon TG5 case fans) with the Corsair LL120 RGB and I also wanted to put 5/6 fans in my case. 3 in the front 1 in the back and 1/2 up. But my mobo (MSI B450 Tomahawk Max) does have only pins for 4 fans and not 5/6. So do you think a fan splitter is safe for my mobo?

You know honestly I have had this issue for over a year now, very close to 2 years, and never ever ever could I find a way to get it below the 80's let alone 70's. I do have a 2070 super, but that GPU isn't having temp issues. My 2080 however has temp issues.

Let me just put it in a simple manner. If you are comfortable with changing the thermal paste on the GPU, get NT-H2. It helped my 2080 tremendously. Previous crypto mining temps went up to the 80's. NT-H2? 40's. Gaming? In 70's, which is safe. I wish I could get it lower, but I'm just unlucky there.

All up to you, but it's definitely worth it. If you plan on doing so, make sure you use the X method when applying the NT-H2. Basically means just make an X on the GPU square thingy (many people call it the "die").
 
Also consider overclocking/undervolting the card. I set up my 2070 Super to a limit of 1920MHz @ 900mV and the card went from floating around 75C if I let it do its thing to about 63C in a room that's usually around 25C. And there was almost no appreciable performance loss for doing this.

Your millage may vary, but I say this is a pretty good option.
