  1. I'm running 3 Noctua NF-A14 fans on a gigabyte x570 motherboard. I'm using the vrm sensor to set the fans at a constant 70% speed until temps reach 50c, then it starts ramping up. Wandering if there's a better option/sensor to use or if there's a way to use GPU temps to control case fans
  2. I can go as high as $250. I basically want an efficient PSU that would last me a long time. I tend to go for a little more premium products, and Corsair and EVGA are the only two companies I've used in this case
  3. What makes it better? I'll probably go for it if that's the case (and I've seen it for a little cheaper)
  4. Looking to get a new PSU and I've narrowed it down to these two. Wandering which would be better
  5. I moved 1 of the fans to exhaust, but I can get extra fans this black friday
  6. Ryzen 7 3800X with Noctua NH-U12A, Asus strix GTX 1080. I moved one of the front fans to the back (the case comes with 3 140mm intake and no exhaust by default) and was wandering what fan configuration would be best
  7. Do you think a top exhaust or rear exhaust?
  8. I know there's more to this than just the number of case fans, but I'm curious as to how many case fans and what orientation, e.g 2 front intake and 1 back exhaust, is ideal
  9. Started using the splitter so fans are running at the same speed. Actually saw a slight temperature improvement in Cinebench from 78c max to 75c max
  10. I'm in Canada, and it's getting colder here
  11. Other components seem fine. VRM temp is usually around 40c, CPU (Ryzen 7 3800x with Noctua NH-U12a) is usually around 45c - high 60s. The fans are spinning, I checked to make sure. Sometimes, when they spin at max, there's a weird noise though Nope, no OC on the card. It's usually around 1800mhz when gaming I hate the fact that I have to limit power and temps using MSI Afterburner
  12. I'm using a Phanteks P500A case (with 2 front intake and 1 rear exhaust fan), and I can't seem to keep my Asus strix GTX 1080 temperature under control. Playing a game like overwatch drives temperatures to 82c, even valorant was driving high temps while the card was at 60% usage. Not sure what's going on.
  13. I looked at the NF-P14S, and it seems they are about the same, but the A14 are cheaper right now
