  1. 158mm cooler

    That's not true. And rather really undervolting, you need to set constant manual voltage. Like 1.2V.
  2. Cooler Master Hyper 212 vs Corsair H45

    It's worth only if you can get it cheap.
  3. Can't slow fans down

    It could be that the particular header doesn't have fan control chip. Does manual say it's controlled like the others?
  4. BeQuiet Coolers

    That's model number and isn't that well known. You ean it's Pure Rock Slim. Its really hard to say where issue is. In all be Quiet! is premium cooler brand. They aren't perfect, there's mistakes. But overall your experience is minority. I can't say if its cooler, mobo or user issue. That would require more in detail temp readings under same testing.
  5. Good thermal paste for 10 bucks or less.

    If that's new cooler, it will come with small tube of thermal paste. You don't need anything more.
  6. windows 10 license

    This isn't quite true. MS did upgrade them, but they remained pirated. They don't fix key if it's from package where package owner is responsible for that kind of care. Which is the case for most cheap keys.
  7. Suggestion for an alarm clock app

    I have Alarm Clock Xtreme. Free version doesn't have pin or fingerprint, but it has some other options. Like scanning QR code to dismiss.
  8. Need Help with cpu temps

    That article mixes K and non-K models. Both have some issues with cooling, but yours isn't related. Your problem is your ambient temp being 20C higher than what it's in northern countries. Bigger heatsink will fix the problem.
  9. Best email app for windows 10?

    notifications For one it's one tab less. Better integration with desktop notifications. More than just email.
  10. what's the difference?

    That might be your opinion and preference. But you can't assume it's everyone's. With aor cooling newbies, they see big numbers and think that's only thing that matters. While you can share your opinion on high rpm fans and benefits of them, giving good advice means telling why some others might not like things that way.
  11. How do I stream in 1080p

    That should be ok. I think 5mb is recommended, might be 8mb. Only way to know is test and see how much frame drops you get.
  12. You'd smell burning. And that's it. Too little stuff to even get flames. If you ever try to start fire, you understand why amount of material is key for keeping flame alive.
  13. Only if it catches fire somehow. But don't worry, you'd need spark for that. There isn't any open surface that would heat enough to cause flames. Or actually there is, inside PSU. But still highly unlikely.
  14. Are LAN parties still a thing?

    I think they haven't gone away. They are actually easier to arrange now when gaming laptops are a thing and decent internet connection plus 4-port routers are common. Plus, its like having friends over to play on consoles. Except you do it over weekend and have more variety on activities. I haven't been at smaller LANs (my brother has, both with desktop and laptop). I have been few times and major local LAN (Assembly) with desktop and once with laptop. Lately my work has prevented attendance so I've been only following events from streams and social media.
  15. If its dust-sized, no. It will eventually be caught into something like heavy dust. And you can wipe it like other heavy dust. Btw, for all who don't have access to canned air or air compressors, a bicycle pump is also great and cheap way to blow dust. If you get one with hose, even better. Or something to make air more directed. Like adapter for air mattress.
