The max fan speed is set to 42% by default and I think that this is a bit low for this rather heavy gaming card. The problem is when I...

    Question Should I Change My Case From Cooler Master MasterCase Pro 5 to the NZXT H500i?

    Title sums it up pretty well. I'm upgrading my PC soon and I really like the minimalist aesthetic of NZXT's H500i, but I am concerned that my thermals might downgrade since the front panel is blocked. I don't really mind that the case is smaller, but it would be a dealbreaker if my thermals go...
