    Question Can I unplug one fan from my Ryuo iii 360 to test which fan is squeaking?

    I've recently purchased myself a Ryuo iii 360. One of the fans seem to sqeuak but I want to diagnose which specific fan(s). There are 3 fans which are all plugged into a splitter so unplugging one won't kill the others, it would just mean only 2 fans would be spinning. If I was to unplug one...

    Question Intel Core i9 12900k is so spicy

    Why does this cpu run so damn hot? Doesn't seem like it matters what I do to try to keep it cool under heavy load without throttling the performance. I'm using a liquid cooler with a 360 radiator and the damn thing still runs 90c to 100c on heavy loads. Idle it runs around 27c-35c. Is this...

    Question Which 4070 super model would be a better off solution cooling wise?

    I've recently read some comments about the MSI 4070 super Ventus 2x not being the best at cooling while I found it on sale for a solid 630 euro, would I be better off with the ASUS 4070 super dual option instead? (These 2 are roughly between the same price range for me)
