Hello guys! I think both options were great so I'm very thankful! I finally bought the Noctua from a second hand user, based also in some reviews and opnions in the internet that I saw. It cost me 30€ and only has a year of use, so it's almost new...
I installed the GTX 1070, and it works perfect with my PSU, no problem seen so far. Well, I realized that the two GPU fans didn't start running until I set them up them with Argus monitor. It seems like the Bios set up for these two fans is not working properly. Do you know why is this happening? Do you know a good fan configuration curve for this GPU?
I will let you know how much better does my CPU when the cooler arrives and is already installed.

thanks!

Is it new one or used ? also , get 140 fan and stick it on the door from inside .. make it take hot air out of the case.

use 3M double sided stickers to mount it..
The GTX1070 is second hand. I'll wait for the cooler to be installed and see how temps oscillates while idle or gaming

Try this tool.


don't run both together.
I did it, and now what? everything looks the same, and once I stoped running argus monitor all fans speeded up almost 100% of their maximun power...
GPU stays in a 78ºC average. CPU fan and system fan speeded up too. No errors were found (luckily). So, looks like Argus monitor is measuring correctly, as every temp looks the same.
Now sounds like plane taking off...

PS: I just had google chrome opened and PUBG (but not playing). Once I closed the game, all fans went down a lot and GPU temp went down upto 57ºC. Same for CPU temp went down significantly.

My GPU stays at 62ºC on idle... I read on internet that is too much... What could be causing this?
BTW I recieved Notua Cooler, it fits on the case but I guess is gonna be a bit difficult to install, dut to lack of space... haha

Does the GPU use paste like a CPU and cooler? ... but I don't think so, cause my other grapichs card did the same thing... (I replaced 970 for 1070 as u know)
BTW I installed the Noctua is great the fan! thank you for your advice.

Hi all! I change the paste of the GPU and now is 57ºC on idle instead of 62ºC. I also clean the dust and everything... I think is still too high. I believe it could be the fans of the GPU... I guess they are not working properly, is there anything I can do? Can I replace the fans? or has to be someting with software?

thanks for your advice.
