PCs stopped having optical drives by default like 12 years ago and you dumb consolebabies are still clinging to your shitty worthless blurays and optical drives, driving up the prices of your games and your devices

    Anyone on this board should have experience running into specific build shortages when ordering PC parts.

    Flippers and resellers will focus on at least one part of a crucial build and will buy it out entirely, only to resell it for insane prices.

          How old are you? Not only PC games have "settings" but you can play downscaled or even just emulate 30fps like on console. It's not the issue, unless you're zoomer who play GraPHicS and AAA shit.

          You're doing it wrong. If you have more fans you should be running them at like 25% or even 20%. The point is to have the same amount of airflow as less fans, but being able to move that air using lower RPMs.

          • 2 weeks ago
            Anonymous

            So you're saying I should cap them at 25%? I might give that a go sometime, but I think I should probably still let them ones in front run a bit faster as I don't really keep up with cleaning that dust filter I put on there.

              Anonymous

              you should have them running as high as they can while being silent, and then have the fans ramp up with the motherboard gets a bit warm. Ideally you want the case fans to ramp up when the GPU and/or CPU ramp up, but that's not always viable.
              I do not suggest having the case fans ramp up based on the CPU, as you can run into situations where you CPU is running cool while your GPU is choking for fresh air. This is especially likely if you have a beefy CPU cooler.
