    I'm geology student trying to get masters done in near future. I've been playing around computers since 2002 when we got new machine to replace old P2. My knowledge comes from reading tech magazines and from personal experience. Currently not able to game as much as previously. Daily games are Hearthstone (PC) and Heroes: Charge (Android)

  1. How many active posts is that daily/weekly? Last division from OS and Software was made with forum upgrade to current form. And that was mainly because of Windows threads chucking whole thing. They aren't doing another split unless certain threads are drowning all others, or if others would survive without Linux threads.
  2. Is there need for separation with Linux and all others?
  3. Which fans? As for temps, those are from mobo sensors and they are known to be wonky. So seems like you have bunch of bad ones. Mobo components can take temps much higher than CPU, so only time you should worry about them is when you are going for extreme OC.
  4. Because there is someone to clean offices once a week at minimum. Plus OEM PCs are often part of leasing agreement and providers get money from maintenance when something gets "slow".
  5. You shouldn't look at TDP when shopping a cooler. Manufacturers rating are recommendations at best. You get better results by comparing different coolers, even user results since reviews are often done with CPUs. For example H7 performs bit better than 212.
  6. That wouldn't make any difference in pressure though. Maybe adding bottom intake instead.
  7. Have you set correct minimum values in Speeds tab?
  8. Molex is old power connector. It supplies constant 12V for device. They were used for HDD/ODD before SATA became standard. They were also used for fans, but for obvious reasons mobo headers are prioritized over them. At most you might still see molex as main power conenector for fan controller or hub. But most of them are SATA now since its same style power connector.
  9. Which mobo?
  10. PWM = Pulse Width Module aka sends pulse to fan which tells it to spin one rotation. More pulses, faster rpm. DC sends constant voltage to fan which makes it spin. More voltage, faster rpm. Difference between the two is accuracy of control. But to your original worry. All fans are rated to run at full speed. Any specs saying lifespan in hours is about fan running constant 100%.
  11. Or you could just get 120mm fan and use 212s included clips. You aren't really doing upgrade going from bigger to smaller, even when smaller is Noctua.
  12. Depends on what you are looking for. If you are fine all case fans running at same speed, you should get powered PWM splitter/hub and connect all to PWM chassis fan header. Or use 3-way for CPU header and 2-way for chassis header. Seems like mobo has limited support for controlling 2nd chassis header.
  13. Why do you reply, when you don't know the answer. He has ASUS board, for god's sake. It can control both 3pin and 4pin fans connected to 4pin headers. Only thing it might need is small change of what header is suppose to do.
  14. M9i is alternative to 212 Evo. Evo is bit better, but if you go for smaller case, M9i will definitely fit in.
  15. Its not about seeing anything. Its more like Recent sniping. You get massive epen upgrade if you get first reply. With Recent snipers at worst it was replying to title without reading post itself. With these they don't watch video.
