    Aaron1080p reacted to Biomecanoid in Achieving good airflow on a tight budget   
    I guess you are just overthinking. You will be fine, choosing whatever fan won't have any real effect in power consumption as their power draw is insignificant.

    You will be fine - imho the most affordable fans, for your future reference, that have great performance are the Arctic P12 value packs.  I swear by them in the price to performance game.

    Yes that would be correct. You essentially need to look for something like this: https://aerocool.io/product/frost-12-pwm/

    If you like RGB so much just get fans that light up when power is applied

    Your typical RGB fan will have TWO connectors, one for the fan and one for the RGB.

    Quick check of that board on the Asus site suggests that board doesn't have any RGB headers. So to answer your questions, 4pin fan headers are usually the same (in your case they are) and yes your board only supports connecting fans to it and not lighting them up, that is if they require a proper RGB connector the for the LEDs. Some RGB fans that have static LEDs don't require a proper RGB cable for them to light up.

    Aaron1080p reacted to Mick Naughty in DO GRAPHIC CARD BACKPLATES REALLY GET HOT?   
    Depends on the card. Most do get hot. Especially with a poor design. 
     
    I had two identical cards, one on air and one on water. Using a sealed backplate like an ek version was very hot. 70-80c
    A perforated one like evga sat around 60c. The cards have vram on the back too. Contributes to a lot more heat. 
     
    But all of my cards get hot on the back but that depends on how hot they get as well. Tend to keep mine no hotter than 45c ever. And I keep my builds designed with airflow for all the mobo components anyway, so everything tends to stay cool.

    Keep in mind that the backplate is basically pressed against the back of the GPU core, and doesn't get much active airflow, so it's going to naturally run pretty warm. It's not something you really need to worry about - if it's not instantly giving you a bad burn, it's not hot enough to damage your components.

    Depending on the GPU in question the backplate is often connected to the back of the GPU core or the back of the VRMs. Both get toasty fast, it's normal to feel it getting warm in that amount of time. 
    (Some cards have purely aesthetical backplates, those shouldn't get very hot)
    On my Vega56 the backplate gets hotter than the normal heatsink, too. Just the VRMs touch the backplate, though they are not well cooled in the first place...

    A heatsink has a lot more area to dissipate heat. It also has a fan over it (on a GPU) so it is actively moving heat away from it.
     
    A backplate does not.

    If it was dangerous for the card, manufacturers would not put backplates on their GPUs. The last thing they want is an RMA because the backplate caused damage to the GPU. That makes no sense economically.

    If it's getting hot, it's doing its job; absorbing heat.

    It all depends on how the card has been designed. If the card has been designed to use the backplate as an additional heatsink, then yes, it's doing what it's supposed to be doing.

    Thank youuuu. I can sleep now in peace. I rendered one of my 3D projects and a little short while, it began to spin. ❤️

    Aaron1080p reacted to BritScout in DO GPU FANS ALWAYS SPIN?   
    Yes, the RX570 will have fans that only spin at certain temperatures. You have nothing to worry about.

    Check the used market to see if anyone is selling an RX 570. The RX 570 is a few years and couple generations old by now. Stores might no longer be stocking them new.

    bottlenecking has higher fps than what youre getting, but it is until a certain point, it could be 1 fps it could be 100. it all depends on your system
    besides that, i would really suggest either upping the budget or looking for an used rx 570
