    Question Mid tower case with exhaust fan in the front

    Hi all, are there any mid atx tower cases where the exhaust fan is in the front instead of the back? The case will go in a cubby in my entertainment center in the basement. So the back will be covered and the basement is colder so i can use the warm are.

    Question why do we need thermal glue?

    HI all, I know this is a stupid question, but why do we need thermal glue between the cpu and heatsink? the bottom of the heatsink is flat and so is the cpu. why not just put the HSF directly on the cpu?

    Question Zenbook Flip ux362FA noisy. to return or not?

    Question RM650x fan doesn't spin up

    Hi all, i have a Corsair RM650x PSU and the fan doesn't spin up. I know it depends on how much load is on it or how hot it is.

    Question Would this step up in CPU cooler really allow significantly better performance?

    Hi all, I've had a Scythe Big Shuriken 2 Rev. B for a number of years now on an intel 6700k. Initially it was in a mini-ITX case, hence the need for a low profile. For a while now I've been in a tower case & in most usage the limiting factor I am hitting is my CPU in rendering a content...
