    Best overall case fan?

    Its not exactly an oxymoron, different fans are constructed differently with different materials, different shaped blades, different overall quality. This will make some fans have a higher ratio between sound and air flow.

    Computer turns itself on

    It could be a bad PSU its a brand new Ultra X2 and I don't remember noticing the problem before. I just didn't think it could cause it to turn on, Once again all wake options are disabled and no input devices are touched when it turns on.

    Computer turns itself on

    I have sat and watched the thing turn on, nothing is doing anything. Right now i'm flipping the switch on the back of the PSU. I've emailed ECS about it, I don't know if they will reply. I've played with the actuall switch with no luck.

    FEAR is the hottest game out there!

    I was also really disappointed in FEAR, the graphics didn't hit me as amazing, and the game play wasn't fun at all, I'll stick to my HL2 and Oblivion.

    Computer turns itself on

    thats the first thing I checked, There is no one else here and the Ghostbusters don't have a branch in Canada. Its the weirdest problem, I've also tried disconnecting the LAN and disconnecting to make sure the power switch wasn't bad. I'm thinking maybe a trojan or some sort of virus, but I...

    LOL! this is what u get when im board

    Yea, my understanding is now the original fan will do next to nothing and the extra fan is going to force air backwards through it rendering it useless.

    Computer turns itself on

    The only help I could find googling this was to change the BIOS power options to not boot on call or ring. All of the booting options are disabled in power management in the BIOS. I can't really think of what else is happening. All I know is when I turn off my computer, when I come back it is...

    "Randomly" shuts off...

    Well, all of your other temps seem normal, it is normal for your PSU fan to be hotter than the back exit, especially under load. I've had PSU's die many times on me and this is always how I knew it was time for them to go. The only weird occurrence I've ever had was once the back power switch on...
