  1. I have EK Furious Vardar 3000RPM 120mm fans and I never really use them above ~2000RPM because of the noise. If I were buying iPPC A14s, I'd probably just go for the 2000RPM versions. That being said, I'd probably just go for a normal A14 Chromax over both of them. Also like @Somerandomtechyboi mentioned, Arctic make some great fans that aren't too expensive.
  2. It would only be 70dB at peak RPM, yes. I would imagine they're still quite loud even at lower RPMs though, so if the performance (in CFM) and fan speed are linear (which I don't know if they are), 150CFM would still be at 2600RPM for a 140mm fan. That would probably still be very loud. Surprisingly enough, someone actually bought them and put them in their machine (the video has a single fan running at max speed):
  3. The problem is that it's extremely loud (70dB versus an NF-F12 at 22.4dB) and is a 38mm thick fan (most standard fans are 25mm thick, with some like EK's Meltemi being 38mm.) Fans like that one can be useful for certain applications such as servers where sound isn't important, but not for your average desktop PC.
  4. Yes, just like the MASSSSSIVE security flaw of Sony supporting non-factory storage devices since the PS3 and it not resulting in a kernel-level exploit allowing for jailbreaking, hacking, etc.
  5. Tesla cards are usually used in workstations or servers to accelerate certain tasks that are otherwise inefficient to run on a CPU. You can use them for stuff like video rendering, 3D modeling and rendering, game development, etc. I don't know a ton about it personally though, and I'm sure there are plenty of other uses that I haven't touched on. Thanks! I've been watching Top Gear and The Grand Tour since I'm a little kid and my favorite was always Jeremy Clarkson.
  6. You can't effectively mine with a card like that. It has enough VRAM but it's very slow, has high power consumption and wouldn't fare well by modern standards. It is Fermi after all. To the right person it's probably not junk, but you nor I are the right person.
  7. Apple: iPhone XS Max is rated for IP68 water and dust resistance (2m/6.5ft of water for up to 30min)

      Yeah, that happens unfortunately. 

  8. This is what I get from my 2TB SX8200 Pro that I bought in May. The Amazon listing explicitly stated that it had a SM2262EN which is nice.
  9. A Ryzen 7 5800X or Intel Core i7-11700K would probably fit best in a machine in that budget (assuming USD), though don't be afraid to consider the Ryzen 5 5600X or Core i5-11600K since it could give you more wiggle room for better components in other areas. However, it's an incredible pain in the butt to get a GPU at the moment. Seeing as you're building a machine from scratch, purchasing a pre-built from a company like NZXT's BLD, Digital Storm's Redux or another machine might be an easier route depending on your ability to get a GPU at or near MSRP.
  10. The Wraith Prism uses the two plastic mounting clips that are preinstalled on your motherboard out of the box. So if you took those off to install the Wraith Stealth that came with your Ryzen 5 3600, you need to reinstall them. Otherwise, it will work just fine.
  11. I have one of these and I have no complaints. I don't use it a ton but when I need it, it works great. I've used it for my Oculus Rift and sensors as well as for USB 3.0 external drive file transfers on my old X58 system and my AMD A78 system. They also make a version with an internal USB header instead of the extra 2 USB ports. The only thing I'm not in love with is it using SATA for power, but it works fine. EDIT: Not sure if this is what you meant. If you don't mean this, disregard.
  12. You can use checkra1n to jailbreak it. I'm not sure of the exact process though so I'd advise searching for a guide of some sort. As for downgrading, I believe you can't.
  13. Your GPU is dual-slot and the PCIe 1x slot on your board is one slot under your PCIe x16 slot, so a PCIe WiFi card isn't going to fit. You'll have to go USB.
  14. Does anyone have recommendations as far as sleeved PSU extensions go? I'd consider going with custom cables but no one makes them for my PSU. I don't know whether I can trust the random brands on Amazon or not given I'm powering hardware that consumes a lot of power (mostly concerned about my GPU.)

      Personally I havent ventured down this path due to pinouts (and me not understanding them enough to look up how to understand them to look and see if pinned the same).  I tried sleeving...NOT for me, I dont have the dexterity in my nimbly bimbly fingers nor the time.  Maybe someone on this forum could take on side work that is trustworthy?  Or a bunch of research (my thoughts)
