    Love all the focus on cooling for this one. Thank you for the review.

    In a perfect world, where such a card would be readily available and on more models than just the 3070, I'd be all over it. One of those upcoming 3090Tis coupled with this cooling would probably be a way better match. Either way, Noctua FTW!

    I think it's a very nice product - if they do a noctua 4090, then im getting one of those.

    I use one of their CPU heatsinks, the temps under load look very nice. I'd pay a premium for a graphics card with this sort of cooling setup.

    Would pay 1500 if it wasn't brown, cuz i recently traded brown for chromax after more than 10 years.

    You can swap out the fans for any of the black noctua ones (or even other brands), it's just that the connector cables on the ones that come with the card are a bit shorter to be more tidy.

    The backplate and shroud have a brown tint to it.

    Great temps and on top of that cooler is almost dead-silent.

    Thanks for the nice review HH!

    Right, guess only a paintjob would fix that.

    It's so wierd to release a 3070 with this cooling setup and with the premium price. Why not start with the 3080 ti and 3090 then work down if it's successful?

    If they do a 3070ti or 3080 version....they you can find/afford i`d consider one but given my Msi 3070 gaming Xtrio is already pretty quiet i`ll stick with it for the time being.

    3080 might need 3 fans to achieve the same goal they're aiming for.

    It's sort of funny to think that Noctua and GPU brands haven't teamed up before. Back when aftermarket GPU coolers were more of a thing (5-10 years ago), people were always mounting up Noctua's to get better performance and silence.
