Re: Suggestions for mid power QUIET gaming PC

Abula - I agree with other, i dont think your card is overheating. But when there is a striking difference between the heatpipes on the CPU cooler and on the GPU cooler, while the reported temps are roughly comparable, then I say that something is a miss.

Re: Some 120mm Fan Reviews: Vardar, Slip Stream, Gentle Typh

Re: FanXpert2 vs ??

You really want to read the manual for the fan header pin out if you want to control 3 pin dc fan. It seems that they really want to move to all pwm.

Re: Suggestions for mid power QUIET gaming PC

Okay, so for more constructive debate - for quiet VGA cooling - anyone know something better that Prolimatech MK-26 cooler?
