    Asus x Noctua GeForce RTX 3070 graphics card seen in EEC docs

    Would you prefer a Noctua beige and brown design, or simply Noctua tech in the cooler?

    Yes please on the GPU, i quiet like the brown & beige, not that i have a windowed case. I hope it's more than just Noctua fans on it, I'd like to see Noctua's take on the cooler itself.

    Colour wise it looks like something you would do in the mid 80ish.. kind of retro, the color does not matter to me, as I am not going to look at it... all this hysteria with noise and whatever, you can solve or reduce quite a bit of it, by just putting the PC under the table or something, no idea why people insiste having it on top of the table.

    Not a fan of the colours in the mock up, hopefully it will be the grey versions, but anything to 'quiet down' the gpu is a good thing imo.

    Considering even with a window that I'm the only one looking at the damn thing I'd take a Noctua brown cooler any day as long as it doesn't come at too much of a price hike compared to other versions.

    Re: Asus x Noctua GeForce RTX 3070 graphics card seen in EEC docs

    I think the beige version could work well.
    I no longer use Noctuas myself and would likely watercool my GPU, but this does look like it could be a good one.

    I very much like the idea of Noctua being involved in the cooler. If it was available, it'd be a very positive point in my card choice.

    Would you prefer a Noctua beige and brown design, or simply Noctua tech in the cooler?
    No, I certainly wouldn't prefer te beige and brown. I have a D15 specified for my system prchse, and I'll cheerfully pay or the Chromax black version. I won't say what that colour reminds me off, but I have no wish to be reminded of it. Sure, it's distinctlively Noctua, but I don't care. I'm not interested in "I've got a Noctua", which is partly why I want a solid-sided case, not a window .... and zero RGB. But their fans? That's entirely different. I'll pay for the tech, willingly. Not the branded colour, which is horrible. To me.

    I also pay for the Chromax D15 but then bought the brown fan shock absorver to give it just a litle touch of true noctua style. It also pairs nicely with the exhaust PPC fan that has a litle touch of brown.

    I think a gpu with full noctua colors would look very weird and bad, but something inspired on the ppc line, chromax black with small touches of brown would look pretty cool

    Ah, nothing much. I even used to make my own. It's a complicated recipe though, requiring whole seconds of intense concentration.

    The full recipe is as follows :-

    - (optional) if you like crunchy, very lightly blend a few peanuts into chunky bits, remove from blender and set aside, then
    - insert peanuts (roasted, preferably) into blender,
    - blitz until at required smoothness.
    - add salt (or substitute) if you prefer a saltier taste (I don't) and blend very quickly.
    - if you created optional crunchy bits, add back in and blend very slowly to mix in.
    - scrape out and add to resealable jar.
    - spend quite a lot longer cleaning blender than you did making peanut butter.

    Short version - stick nuts in blender and whizz thoroughly. Please consider this instruction carefully in the context of the above recipe and don't do anything monumentally stupid, that you will regret. Use correct nuts.

    Extra recipe content - works with almonds, hazelnuts, cashews, etc, too. Which is to say, for the pedants out there, that makes almond butter, hazelnut butter, cashew butter, etc. Trying to make peanut butter with almonds or hazelnuts, cashews etc is not going to taste right.


    Unfortunately, I cannot currently eat peanut butter as it seems to disagree with my current medication, and tends to have an .... unfortunate .... effect on my digestive system, which by a strange coincidence brings me full circle to what the colour of Noctua standard fans remind me of, which is why I don't want them in my PC.

    Hmmm. Not sure about that. If you would care to pop round with several large examples, I will conduct extensive experimentation on what might be wrong with them. Probably, I will experiment until I end up with a caramel and fudge induced version of ..... nah, I won't invoke that mental imagery in relation to caramel and fudge cake.


    Ooops.

    Still, if you no longer want that cake, I can dispose of it for you. I'm helpful like that.

    Asus needs to make a new Sabretooth line of motherboards!


    The new GPU would have a matching colourscheme!

    Oh dear lord. I think I prefer RGB. That's a sentence I never thought I'd say.
