  1. It appears I, as usual, couldn't word it properly on the first try... Ugh. There is a CPU input that I am using for the CPU header. The question is about how I should use the one other header. What I take from your reply is that I should use the VRM as input for all case fans? Guess it makes sense. Is it the VSOC MOS or VRM MOS? I assume the latter, but who knows. This motherboard (Gigabyte B450M DS3H) doesn't have a lot of documentation.
  2. My motherboard only has 2 fan headers, one for CPU and the other for whatever. I got a fan hub and a total of 4 fans will be connected to this hub (2x 140mm input, 2x 120mm exhaust). The temperatures that can be used as inputs are Chipset, VRM MOS, VSOC MOS and System 1, on top of an adjustable fan curve. (I assume System 1 is an average or something, I have no clue). Which do I pick to keep this PC as cool as possible? I don't give a crap about noise, as long as there is noise only when under load.
  3. HWiNFO reports the same temperatures. Perhaps I shouldn't have worried if it's normal. Thanks.
  4. I started noticing this because the fan keeps revving up and down, and then I checked HWMonitor, and the CPU (Ryzen 5 3600) keep jumping 10ºC out of nowhere. It then cools down those degrees, and jumps again. What confuses me more is that it only happens on the "Balanced" and "High Perfomance" power plans; with "Power Saver" it doesn't happen. I'm using the stock cooler. According to a bit of research it's normal because Windows, but it is really weird.
  5. That's great actually, it should work. Thank you so much.
  6. Ideally I would be able to do that... But it appears I didn't word myself before properly, sorry. This motherboard only has 2 total fan headers: one for the CPU and one for other fans. So I would probably need a hub since there is no cable that will go from the rear to the front...
  7. Portugal, found a store selling them for 7.90€ but it's out of stock, will have to wait haha. Do you happen to know what is the maximum number of fans connected like this, and if I can connect a different size? Asking because the rear fan I have is 120mm and 3 pin, so this will get confusing to manage.
  8. That wasn't exactly clear in the description I say, so thanks a lot. That seems like a great solution actually. Will have to find some store that sells those where I am. Do you know how many can be daisy chained?
  9. I'm a bit confused. Are the fans daisy-chained, or would it require a splitter? Sorry, bit of a noob, what exactly does that mean and how that work?
  10. I'm using a CoolerMaster MasterBox Q300L and it came with a rear 3 pin fan. No idea what its specs are. Since right now the airflow is terrible for sure, I'm planning on buying two NF-P14S redux-1200 (also 3 pin fans) from Noctua. They for sure will have different specs from the included fan. My motherboard only has 2 fan headers, including the CPU's, so I'll need a fan hub too, and was looking at the DeepCool FH-10. My question is, how would this be plugged in? Like, since the motherboard will only read one fan and the others will do whatever that specific one does, will different specs fuck anything up? Or can I just plug them however I want and it'll just work? Sorry for the dumb question and meh English.
  11. I checked and I think it seems to be an "inline interactive" UPS, so to my understanding of everyone's useful insight, I should be perfectly fine. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Thanks everyone for the useful information.
  12. Not the other guy but your explanation seems pretty good. But what does it mean if nothing shut down by itself? That seems pretty weird
  13. The PC did not shut down by itself, it was me as I got scared... But thanks a lot for relieving me. I don't think I would be able to sleep if I damage by first rig less than a day after building it...
  14. After this happened and I noticed its rating was too low I immediately shut the PC down and stopped using the UPS. But I am really worried because I'm a noob and have no idea if this could have caused any damage.
  15. So, long story short, I was a complete idiot and used an UPS without checking its power rating (it's 260W...). I then proceed to run run a game and there's a chance it didn't provide enough power for about 15 seconds (it warned, honestly could either not have provided it or did it while damaging itself). The PC boots up fine and seems to be working without a problem, but I'm scared I damaged my first build. I'm really worried. If it matters, I'm using a Ryzen 5 3600 and a XFX RX 590 8GB (PCPartPicker estimates 374W). PSU is a Corsair TX650M.
