  1. group: casual skyping

    Do you have discord?
  2. Friends and I do Arma, but we don't take it seriously. We lack any semblance of an attention span. If you don't care let me know.
  3. I don't, I let it heat up the room. I hate the cold.
  4. My dad was riding with me while we went to pick up his truck. He told me not to downshift so much because it wears out the car faster. Don't think he knows that I'm rev matching while downshifting so there should be minimal wear, but oh no high revs! If he wasn't such a cranky old man I would have given him some education.
  5. In the quest to fix my civic's gross under-steer, I have come across this. What do you guys think, worth the buy? Ebay car parts have a bit of a reputation.
  6. Case airflow top and front intake?

    With a restrictive front panel design like that it will be difficult to get positive air pressure with just front fans alone. At the same time, I'm afraid that having all the top fans as intakes will hurt airflow more than help. Too much positive pressure can bring in just as much dust as negative pressure. Set the rear top fan as an exhaust with the rear fan and set the rest to intake and see how that plays out. You can use some dry ice to check for airflow around the various gaps in your case. Are you doing a custom loop on all the components (I assume so with that many rads)? If so, GPU thermals are less of a concern.
  7. Show off your setup!

    Yes, I do plan on getting a new desk... a bigger desk.
  8. [SOLVED] SP or AF on Meshify C?

    I would move both of your case fans to the front of the case as intake, or to the back as exhaust. You will want to have a fan blowing towards the GPU (middle position) and another right above it to blow air towards the CPU. I would recommend buying just two additional fans, you don't need to fill the case with fans but having just two extra would help. This is assuming that your thermals need work, double check your thermals to figure out if you need cooling and where.
  9. I would suggest getting a new power supply, your transformer is too weak to deliver what the amp is asking for. You can get them for fairly cheap online. You could also chop up an old wall wart or power brick that has the right voltage output for your amp and splice it into the PCB.
  10. USB fan controller

    I just returned the fan yesterday, I will just have to look for something more coventional.
  11. USB fan controller

    They are controllable but through voltage control only. The PWM fan runs at full speed. I have no idea why they put a 4 pin header for a voltage controlled fan. I've attached the manual for the board, pate 1-27 is the section on fan headers. 7760v3.0(G52-77601X9)(X79A-GD45 Plus).pdf
  12. USB fan controller

    These are the system specs. The fans that I bought were a single ML120 and ML140 each.
  13. USB fan controller

    Not trying to be picky here, but I'm being picky. My motherboard only has one PWM fan header, and that's the one for the CPU fans, While the CPU gets hot, it's not the problem I'm trying to fix with the new fans. The GPUs get really hot while gaming so I need air down at the bottom of the case and gaming loads rarely stress the CPU to a level where it needs to spin up. The board does better with the fan headers for case fans for whole system temps (not linked to CPU temps) but they aren't able to control the PWM fans. I was hoping for a USB controlled device that I could set for certain temps. As it stands now, I'm probably just going to return these fans. The LED isn't white (more like a yellowish white), the fans are stupid loud the light projection isn't very good, they are really loud, I have no way of controlling them with my current setup, and they are really loud.
  14. USB fan controller

    Can anyone help me find a USB fan controller for driving 4 PWM fans? I have been looking around and the only ones that I found seem to be manual control in a 5.25 inch bay or something that costs $30 or more. I don't really want to spend more than $15 USD as I can easily return the fans for $7 which is what I'm ready to do, I figured I would give them a shot.
  15. Looking for people to play games with (Australia)

    Not Australian, but my group does want an Australian to talk to. We love the way they speak, and their sense of humor. A discord link has been sent.
