    Fan controller or variable resistor?

    So i'm planning on re-hooking my Delta 120x38mm fan (rated at 12v 1.6A).The obvious problem is the noise,which i'll deal with by undervolt the fan.Now should i buy a fan controller with 3-4 channels,each can provide 15W (the cheap model i guess) and only use one channel for the Delta (the other...

    Questions on the HD6950

    So i have a few questions on this one,especially the reference card: 1.Is the reference really loud?Because i got used to non-ref cards for quite some times and i wonder if the infamous vacuum-cleaner noise (on the HD4870) still exists in the HD6950 ref or not. 2.I'm running only on the 21.5"...

    Question on the power consumption

    I don't really know where to put this thread so forgive me if i put it in the wrong section. So my question is pretty simple.Considering my rig draws about 270-300W from the PSU,does that mean it continuously draws 300W every second or every hour?I'm confused with the number as i need to...

    Problem with the CM Vortex Plus

    This HSF uses push-pin mechanic to mount onto the mainboard.But it requires you to tighten a piece of steel to the bracket (the 2nd one from the left,2nd line) to hold the HSF in place.So when i was tightening the screw,one of the push pins just snapped and flew out of the mainboard.Since there...

    Problem with the Seasonic 620W
