    no, it will not overheat your system and in the worst case you add a fan inside your PC case.


    i own a GTX970 and it's a good GPU but GTX1070 is even better, the only thing to check is PSU wattage and if it has enough cables to connect to the GPU.

    surprisingly the 484w power supply runs my 980 ti just fine. If you want a bigger power supply youll need an 24-12 pin adapter. no heat issues and it runs silent.

    Ok uhm, i have checked the wattage and its 500 so what i did was order a 750 corsair GPU and the 1070 is already on its way, how do i know if my GPU fits? Or should it fit no matter what (also idk but it said it came with 8-10 dif cables or something, the GPU)

    Ps thanks a lot for answering!

    Sorry i ment to write power supply not GPU

    The only to know if it fits, is to check dimensions on producer website and do some measurement on PC case.


    i think it will fit but it will be a tight one.

    Your power supply should fit. It will be about 1/2 " to 1" closer to the front than the original but the other dimensions should match up fine
