    Seems like overkill? I didn't think the 970 ran particularly warm?

    As someone who is considering a low end 970 this just seems pointless with 970 - A 390 maybe as it runs a lot hotter but not the 970. Seems like 'big spoiler on a corsa' scenario to me. More about showing off than giving any advantage.

    Re: EVGA GeForce GTX 970 HYBRID GAMING brings LCS to lower-tier

    So they increased the power consumption(extra fan and pump) and size just to keep it at 40°C? Why?

    And another thing. Why is there a fan already on the card when its being liquid cooled? If AMD can find a way to do it with fury x, it should be a standard. do 970's really run so hot they need both?
