Hey there everyone,

I just wanted to ask here what your recommendations would be in terms of CPU and case fans and their respective fan curves that you have set them as (for example in BIOS)?

With all those combinations of MBs, CPUs,cses, GPUs etc, it's to generalized question. Some CPUs and GPUs run hotter than others, fan rpms and sizes are all over the place, there are different number of fans and differently configured cases. Then there are tons of diferent CPU coolers.....
