    Anyone running a Ryzen 3 2200G? Does it run hot?

    Picked up one of these the other day to use in my HTPC, and the performance is pretty good despite some bugs I'm trying to work out, but I noticed it runs awfully hot. I had an extra Wraith Spire laying around, which is beefier than the Wraith Stealth that the 2200G comes with, so I figured it...

    Noctua NF-F12 PWM not living up to expectations

    TL;DR: Replaced my pull-only top-mounted fans on an XSPC EX240, from Corsair H60 fans to Noctua NF-F12 PWM's. Small noise difference with both at full speed, but a noticeable decrease in air flow. The specs suggest otherwise, and for $30 a fan, this kinda sucks. What's up with this? (I included...
