  1. Yeah I don't think I will be buying new speakers, I don't really think I will hear a lot of improvement.
  2. As the title says, I'm looking for something to replace my Logitech Z3's with, preferably a 2.1 set since I like to have quite a bit of bass.
  3. 598s uncomfortable? You do realise that these headphones are generally seen as one of the most comfortables on the market right?
  4. I found this 2.1 set: http://www.trust.com/nl/product/20244-vigor-2-1-subwoofer-speaker-set-brown Does that look good enough?
  5. I currently have the Logitech Z3 2.1 speaker set, which I've been using for the past 8 years or so. I'm wondering if it's worth upgrading to a new speaker set, preferably under €100. If so, should I go for a 2 or 2.1 set? I really like having good bass in my music.
  6. Well I just bought a thermal paste that's being made in a large Belgian computer store, I'm guessing that thermal paste will be okay too? It has a thermal conducitivy 7,8 W/mK so that's cool I guess?
  7. Allright seems doable, do you think this will have a positive impact on my temperatures?
  8. So my R9 280 has been getting pretty hot lately (82°C) and quite noisy. I have pretty good airflow in my case (NZXT S340) with 2 intake and 2 exhaust fans. There's pretty much no dust anywhere in my case, including fan filters. I would like to replace the thermal paste on my GPU to see if it makes any difference in temperatures. I know it's usually not very hard to do this (just unscrew everything and that's it), but I'm wondering how this process will go on this particular card. Anyone have any experience with this?
  9. Allright makes sense, thanks for explaining! I don't think I will buy a new hub since it's not THAT loud. Maybe I will just buy another Pure Wings 2 fan and replace the stock 212 fan with a Pure Wings 2. That will work and have about the same cooling potential as the stock fan right?
  10. This is the hub I use, it's a PWM hub: http://www.phanteks.com/PH-PWHUB.html The hub is connected to the CPU header and the fan on the 212 Evo is connected to said hub.
  11. So my Hyper212 Evo fan used to be very silent. I've just installed 4 new case fans (Pure Wings 2) and connected them to a PMW fan hub. Now the fan on the 212 Evo makes quite a bit of noise, a lot more than when I had it plugged directy into the CPU fan header. Any ideas on how this is possible and how I can fix it?
  12. Well I already have 4 fans, so I'm wondering if buying new, decent fans would actually make a difference.
  13. So I have a S340 case with 2 intake and 2 exhaust fans. 2 fans came with the case itself and I got the 2 other fans from another case. They were really loud in the beginning so I modified them so that they run on 5 Volts instead of the usual 12 Volts, making them much more silent but also move less air. All the fans are connected to Molex connecters on my PSU. Now I'm wondering if I would benefit from buying 4 new decent fans (Pure Wings 2) or not. My GPU is getting pretty hot (83°C) so would it make a big difference? When I place a piece of paper on my exhaust fan it hovers maybe 0,5 cm. Any advice?
  14. So I will only be able to control it when I connect it to the CPU fan header? Ok that should work.
  15. I can either go for this hub: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811984004 or this one: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811997110 Which of these would let me set the rpm?
