    Question I have a 1050ti, but Its idle temps hit 60 degrees, why?

    So i have a 1050TI, in a small micro atx case with no case fans. It sits below my desk. The temperature of my room is around i'd say 30 - 24 degrees. It reaches max idle temp upto 60 degrees (Fans dont spin casue they start kicking in the mark of 60 degrees). When i am gaming the fans do start...

    Question Good Case For Air-Cooling

    Hello all, I am looking to upgrade my PC case as I've been disappointed by the build quality of the one I have now. It is a Corsair 780T and although it gives great cooling performance the build quality seems rather bad. The plastic from which the case is made out of seems flimsy and there are...

    [SOLVED] Ryzen 7 3700X 45C idle temps

    As the title says, I am getting 45C idle temps on my Ryzen 7 3700X with a Cryorig H7 Quad Lumi cooler (according to CoreTemp and CAM). What should I do? I haven't tried reapplying thermal paste yet but I doubt that would cause a 10 - 20C drop.

    [SOLVED] NH-D15 - case fans to support the beast?

    I recently got a Noctua NH D15, and a Phanteks Enthoo Pro M (TG) case, but im having trouble deciding on case fans. 3 would be ideal for space and motherboard headers, and also airflow, but im open to suggestions. I dont know what fans to buy. The CPU cooler can go up to 82 CFM, and ill need to...

    [SOLVED] CPU air cooler for Silverstone RL06 case

    Am looking for a high performance air cooler to fit. I wanted the Noctua D15, however, the specs look like Noctua isn't an option. According to Newegg the Max CPU Cooler Height Allowance is 158mm. Any suggestions for a premium cooler that performs like a Noctua that fits? Many thanks.

    Build Advice Does this build have merit? ($2000 budget)

    Last time I built a PC was in 2014 and it ended up a mess. I want to make another one without any of my previous pitfalls, so my priorities are as follows: Performance Aesthetics/aesthetic cohesiveness General common sense stuff (ending up with clean cables and well chosen parts that don't have...

    [SOLVED] Should I get the Hyper 212 Evo or the Black Edition?

    I am deciding between the Hyper 212 Evo and the Hyper 212 Black Edition. They are both the same price on Amazon. Is there a difference in performance/noise? Are there any other important differences? Thanks! https://www.coolermaster.com/catalog/coolers/cpu-air-coolers/hyper-212-evo/ - Hyper 212...

    [SOLVED] Should I replace the stock Hyper 212 Evo fan?

    I have a 120mm Corsair fan already from the Corsair H75 (2018 Version). Should I use the H75 fan or leave what's on the Evo? Will the fan fit? Does it make a difference in thermals/noise? Thanks! https://www.coolermaster.com/catalog/coolers/cpu-air-coolers/hyper-212-evo/#Specifications - Hyper...

    Question Best Air Cooling Solution for 2066 MB

    I'm working on putting together a new system using a i9-9900x processor with an Asus Rampage VI Extreme Omega motherboard, and 64GB of G.Skill Trident Z RAM. I'd prefer to air cool the system with enough overhead to play with light overclocking (so.. maybe 250w?), but I'm having difficulty...

    [SOLVED] Can top exhaust fans "steal" air from heatsink fans and rear exhaust fans?

    The case setup that I'm planning to have is essentially the exact same as the setup portrayed in the rightmost picture of this Amazon review (you can click the picture to enlarge it). However, instead of liquid cooling, I intend to use a Thermalright Le Grand Macho RT CPU cooler, which blows...

    [SOLVED] Does airflow really work the way I think it does in this case?

    I have a question about the fan setup portrayed in this picture. I don't know if I'm crazy, or if airflow actually works this way, but isn't the air being drawn into the case by the uppermost front intake fan being immediately sucked out of the case by the first top exhaust fan before it has a...

    [SOLVED] What's the best 120mm rear exhaust fan I can get my hands on?

    Originally, I was planning to buy a case that supported a 140mm rear exhaust fan, and I planned to buy a Noctua NF-A14 to fill that slot. However, I recently decided to purchase a different case instead which does not support a 140mm rear exhaust fan, but a 120mm one instead. I'm now looking for...

    Question Which model of the RTX 2080 TI has the best air cooling?

    I'm looking to buy an RTX 2080 TI, and I'd like to know which model has the best air cooling. If I recall correctly, there are liquid cooled models, which presumably cool better than the air cooled models, but I've never been a fan of the risks that accompany liquid cooling, so I want to stick...

    Question Convex heatsink base on convex AM4 chip? Cooling implications?

    I am currently contemplating purchasing a Thermalright Le Grand Macho RT CPU cooler for an AM4 CPU chip; however, I'd like to confirm something before I do. As I was browsing reviews of this cooler, I came across one especially informative review that mentioned the fact that the base of the Le...

    Hi guys, been getting a strange occurrence lately where about 1-2 hrs into a game I'm presented with a black screen for a second or two, and then the game mainly pops back to life or on some occasions causes the game to hang. My GPU is OC'd but has been stable for about 12 months with no...

    I currently have the Asus Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 motherboard that came with the Asus Suite II 2.04.01. I was wondering if anyone knows how to adjust the fan speed with this current edition of Asus Suite? My fans are, at times, obnoxiously loud and I would like to have them run a lot quieter when...
