  1. I set it that way mostly because the noctua was doing an awful high pitched noise. Turns out that when the fans are in pull they will do that noise, in push they wont. If I tried to do push with the exhaust to the back of the case I would run into clearance issues, as the fan on top of the ram would not let me close the case. I could have done intake from the back of the case, but I settled for the intake on the top, so that the air from the CPU cools at least the backplate of the gpu.
  2. Red fan is intake, white one is exhaust and the d15 is pulling air from the top grill
  3. So I flipped my noctua to intake from the top (imma have a nightmare with the dust later on) and the temps got like 10°C lower.
  4. Hi guys, what do you think about the looks over function we are getting on the latest years. I got an s340 (i know its not that new but the trend continues) and I did some testing of the temperatures under different conditions, here are the results: *The second square should say "Without front panel but with filter" So there seems to be a clear correlation between lacking airflow from filters and front panels and sidepanels, to an increase in the cpu temperature. There was also an increase on the gpu temperature but I do not have the recorded results.
  5. So, I've got this 980ti since I bought it new back on october 2014, I feel that my thermals are good, but I think the card starts to throttle once it starts reacing 83°C. Do you think it is worth changing the thermal paste on it or not. I've never done it.
  6. Hi guys, I need to add more storage to my computer but I am unsure if I should invest more on an NVMe drive. I mostly use my computer for gaming and I know the load times would be better, but can someone tell me if the difference is in reality that much, and if it is worth the money. I know it depends on the brand too, but I want to have a better general ideal.
  7. Thanks bro, I will look into that build but I will also search for a budget new PC build. I want to compare cost benefit.
  8. I need non ECC unbuffered 4gb dimms. I wanted to upgrade the machine to 8gb but it only has 2 slots. I will check that build tho.
  9. I am in Guatemala, that is why I wrote ghetto, the whole country is a ghetto xd
  10. I will check if someone on the ghetto here has one, sometimes you can get cheap systems for about 200$
  11. For what the ddr2 ram costs on ebay I think I would be able to buy an used one, but I am unsure. I habe about 70$ dollar for the ram and I still need to add a gpu, maybe a 1050.
  12. Hi guys, I have an AsRock G31M-S with a Core 2 Quad Q8400 and 4 gb ddr2 ram. The board supports 8gb of ram and I am looking into buying some ddr2 dimms, but they are quiet rare and expensive, as the motherboard has only 2 slots, therefore I am considering if I should upgrade the board and processor to something that uses ddr3 at least.
