Re: Help: HTPC built for Bu-ray and RPG games.

Well. I changed my mind. I'm going to change the Case + Motherboard + Power supply. Then later I change the CPU/Graphic card. I need the most quiet and energy efficient and at the same time, play games like Shadow of the Tomb Raider and RPGs at maximum quality possible. Later I will need a better Gr...

Re: Help: HTPC built for Bu-ray and RPG games.

Hello. Thank you for answering.
I looked for components thinking about buying a new PC. But it´s more expensive than 5 years ago.
I'm going to buy a new graphic card for now.
Thank you.

Re: Help: HTPC built for Bu-ray and RPG games.

Hello everyone. My PC is great until now.
But it's getting a little slow for games. I need to improve it or buy a new one.
I have been out of the technology development. I see that have been improvements, New SSD M.2. and more.
So here I am again asking for your help :)

Re: Help: HTPC built for Bu-ray and RPG games.

The PC is at the store to fix. But they don't sell splitters or any kind of clip to secure the second fan to the cooler, so I will have to buy them myself later. They called me asking me for my password of the SO to do the tests after changing the thermal paste... I gave it to them... but didn't wan...

Re: Help: HTPC built for Bu-ray and RPG games.

Ok, I decided that I will change all the fans. I will do this: - Change thermal paste to ARCTIC COOLING MX-4 4G - 6,50€ - Add 2x NOCTUA NF-A15 PWM 140MM 1200RPM - 24,10€ x2 (for the cooler, there is plenty of space for the second fan) - Add 4x NOCTUA NF-A14 PWM 140MM 1500RPM- 31,45€ x4 (change all t...

It worked. The hour is fine now and the net don't goes down. Now I want to think the best way of controlling the fans. I'm going to ask for your opinion in one idea that I have. My Asus Motherboard have 2 PWM fan connectors (CPU_FAN and CPU_OPT) and 4 4 pin fan connectors (CHA_FAN1-4). Option 1: - C...

Re: Help: HTPC built for Bu-ray and RPG games.

I don't understand this... the mobo have the CPU-FAN and 4 CHA_FAN headers with 4 pins. The PWM controls the fans based on the temperatures, have 4 pins, right?. These have 4 pins why I should buy 3 pin connect fans and connect them to the mobo if they will not be controlled based on the temperature...

Saves you a little. I prefer Crucial to Corsair btw, too bad they don't sell Ballistix Sport or Ballistix Tactical.

Are they Low Profile? Will I be able to change them with this cooler?
