  1. Thank you, so I should flip all 5 of them if I understand correctly?
  2. Am I doing this right if I want intake in the front and exhaust on the top and in the rear? Or should I flip the fans.
  3. That goes against what they wrote here: https://www.bequiet.com/en/case/1854 where it is mentioned you can install 3 extra 120mm fans in the front, you know, IN ADDITION to the one 140mm that is already there.
  4. On the official be quiet! page it is mentioned that you can, in addition to the 140mm fan that is already pre-installed, install either an extra 140mm fan OR 3 120mm fans in the front in the Pure Base 500DX case. Does that mean there can be a maximum of 4 fans in the front? Would it be possible to have 2x 140mm and 1x 120mm installed in the front?
  5. I've only ever used the hybrid mode on this PSU and never heard it kick in until I tried some very heavy game emulation stuff which causes the PSU's fan to emit a rattling noise. I've seen people say (https://www.reddit.com/r/pcmasterrace/comments/cale0n/on_my_third_psu_and_i_still_get_rattling_sound/et9eloq?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x&context=3) that it might take a few days for the fan to "break in (no idea what that means)" and then it stops. Has anybody encountered this and it stopped after some time?
  6. Are there any PCI-E cards like this, ones I could plug the USB-C port on my Pure Base 500DX into? 10Gbps preferably.
  7. https://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-reviews/R2HDMWVI564YLG/ref=cm_cr_dp_d_rvw_ttl?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B01JMEMAE8 is there any truth to this review or is he just a basket case? What do you think.
  8. An unrelated question sorry, is it ok if the case is pretty tightly surrounded on both sides with a wardrobe and a desk? There are no holes/mesh on the side panels, only in the front, upper part and back and those have space.
  9. I can't figure out how to use the RGB on this case, everyone mentions it takes power from SATA but I am just confused. I'm not talking about software-controlled RGB, just the "simple" one since my motherboard does not have an ARGB header. What am I supposed to plug where? Can anybody who has this case please chime in.
  10. Or I could buy a USB hub (https://www.delock.de/produkte/G_64054/merkmale.html?setLanguage=en) which would be cheaper. Will probably do this (my motherboard, B450 Tomahawk MAX has a 10Gbps USB-C connector on the rear IO panel).
  11. I had plans to buy a NVME M2 SSD and put it in a USB box to use as external storage.
  12. Is there a motherboard (with either of these 3 chipsets (no X570 because of the loud chipset fans)) that has a front 10Gbps USB-C connector? I looked at a few MSI boards (B550 Tomahawk included) and it seems they are 5Gbps only. I have a 10Gbps USB-C connector on the front of the Pure Base 500DX.
