  1. Case recommendations

    What specific components do you have in mind for each scenario? Where are you shopping/located? Budget?
  2. CM Masterbox pro on sale

  3. Nzxt AEF non rgb 140mm vs corsair ml140 non rgb

    Aer are middle of the road fans with an aim at quiet and ML's are relatively quiet high performance fans. Why are you looking at these fans in particular and where are you planning to use the fans?
  4. Help with my fan setup

    Either would be fine. If you want to control the fan, it'd be better to couple the fan with other 3pin fans instead of the pwm cpu fan.
  5. Overclocking with i5-8600k

    What case and ram are you using? What's your budget?
  6. can i use a y cable for 2 different fans?

    This won't damage the header but will result in 100% fan speed for the FN V2 if you're using pwm. If you use dc, that won't be an issue but why would you use dc for your noctua pwm fan? When splitting a header, the signal is duplicated to each header. The NF-A14 uses 12v and a pwm signal for its fan speed. If you're using pwm, any 3pin 12v fans that aren't using pwm like the FN V2 will run at 100%. Why not run the case fan off of another header on the motherboard and run the header in dc mode instead?
  7. Airflow and aftermarket fans

    2, 3, and 4pin fans can all be controlled. It's dependent on the header you're powering them from that determines whether or not you have control. What headers are you powering the case fans from? As for case cooling layout, you should place the rad at the front for intake and use the stock case fans at the top and rear for exhaust.
  8. Intel i5 7600k 50 degrees idle

    It looks like your cpu is oc'ed to 4.5ghz. Have you tried reverting to default motherboard settings and turning off Multicore Enhancement?--it's a feature turned on by default that is effectively an auto oc which generally uses more voltage than necessary.
  9. Thinking of replacing my CPU cooler

    The DRP3 is great but there are cheaper alternatives that would be plenty of cooling for the 8700. The SR Slim is good: https://www.newegg.com/global/il/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA68V21E0643 The best cooler overall would be the NH-U14S for an easy time mounting and a slim form factor that's easy to work around. https://www.newegg.com/global/il/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835608041
  10. A Good Upgrade?

    If you're getting a 360mm rad, it'd only fit at the front and you should have it as intake. You can use the stock fans for top and rear exhaust. Depending on your preference, you can decide to replace the stock case and AIO fans with quieter ones.
  11. Where to buy GPU

    Where are you located?
  12. Is My Build Quiet?

    It's not going to be loud.
  13. That sounds like the graphics card fans although it could be any fan. Are you using a custom fan curve in Msi Afterburner?
  14. Is My Build Quiet?

    Unless you leave the mic right next to the tower, that won't be an issue.
