    Question Help with beefy fan placement?

    I have a FX-6300 (stock cooler), an RX-570, and a single case fan, so my PC gets pretty hot. I just tore down some old E-waste servers and got some beefy fans, I can drill holes and add dust filters anywhere in the case (Its also just an e-waste junk case), so where should I mount them? I have...

    Question Is it worth it buying another exhaust fan

    I’m making a build for myself but i don’t know if i should buy another exhaust fan (nf-f12) or should i just put the extra $20 i have back into other components when my case already comes with an exhaust fan pre installed. The case i’m going to get, as a temporary one at least, is the Mx330.

    Question Is it possible to replace parts of all-in-one watercooling kits?

    I'd like to replace my Noctua NH-U9B SE2 air cooler, that was enough for my seven years old core i7 2600K, but doesn't seem to work well for my new i9 9900KF (core temperature goes up to 85° under heavy load).
