  1. Total noob over here

    If you plugged the cooler into the motherboard, you should be able to control fan speeds through the bios in the PC Health Status section.
  2. Artic Fans are they any good?

    As mentioned already, they're decent fans at a low price. If you're mainly looking for quiet, PW2's could be better: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/M6vZxr/be-quiet-pure-wings-2-120-870-cfm-120mm-fan-bl039 Where are the fans being used?
  3. Total noob over here

    30-40c is very low. You're fine up to 80-90c at load. Have you tried lowering fan speeds? Large ram heatsinks may get in the way of installing some coolers. Where are you shopping/located?
  4. Cpu Overheating i5 3470 on stock cooler ..

    Were your temps lower before? Make sure that the cooler is properly installed with the plastic pins fully inserted and locked by rotating them clockwise.
  5. Linus's funny faces

    We already have a thread for this. Locked.
  6. Case recomendations

    If you want a wall mounted case, I'm not sure what to recommend besides the Core P5. The case doesn't have many 2.5" mounts but those can be mounted just about any where with some Velcro or adhesive. If that's not a requirement and you'd rather prioritize airflow, you could go with the PM01: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/ryKhP6/silverstone-sst-pm01br-w-atx-mid-tower-case-sst-pm01br-w
  7. Help w/ fan replacement

    What are your specs and temps? What's your budget?
  8. Total noob over here

    What are your current temps? Have you tried lowering fan speeds? If temps are fine, you could just replace the fan. What ram are you using? Where are you shopping/located? Budget?
  9. Fan Placement Suggestion For Corsair Crystal 460x

    The top intake fan could be cycling warm air back into the case. Try flipping it to exhaust instead. A rear intake under the graphics card could help but it would bring in more dust without a filter.
  10. Can I get into VR?

    VR gaming doesn't have particular differences in requirement than other PC games other than need high and consistent fps since drops in performance can be jarring. Are you planning on working on VR production? --I'm not entirely sure based on your wording.
  11. Can I get into VR?

    What issues are you having with your current system? What programs are you using and what exactly are you doing? You need to quote a post or tag a member or else they won't get a notification you replied to them.
  12. Can I get into VR?

    If you mean VR Gaming, you're fine. If you mean VR production, it will depend on what exactly you're doing. Moved to PC Gaming.
  13. Fan for push/pull on x62

    What are your specs and temps? Where are you shopping/located? Budget?
  14. What nzxt case should i get?

    Either would work fine. If you have no particular preference, go with the cheaper one.
  15. Case recomendations

    What are the rest of your specs and what are you looking for in a case?
