    Asus ROG Strix 3090 = 400W GPU

    https://www.pcgamer.com/asuss-new-rog-strix-cards-are-400w-behemoths-so-nvidia-ampere-has-room-to-breathe/ That's.... that's a really power heavy card. So, new standard PSU for a rig with it will be 800W minimum? 1000W For a bit of headroom?

    Good Guy Phanteks!

    So I'm having some issues with my front USB ports on my case. It's about 4 years old now, so that's entirely possible, given wear and tear. I e-mailed their support asking if I can order the module from the front of the case by itself. We trade a couple emails with information, and I get a...

    AIO Cooling underperforming

    I've got a 6700k (Still stock, after BIOS flash and complete gutting/cleaning/rebuild) sitting under a Corsair H1156i 280mm Cooler. Arctic P14 PWM fans on them. (Good SP fans) If I stress test the CPU, I can thermal throttle it, at stock speeds. Which is obviously not what a 280mm AIO should...

    Smaller-mATX Cases

    Most mATX Cases don't seem to really be that much smaller than ATX at this point. What're some good mATX Cases that still support a full sized GPU? The Thermaltake Core G3 is an interesting one (Super slim, but still tall) Any others?

    Case Resonating with Voice?

    Yeah, weird subject, but sometimes computers are weird. I've noticed that my Enthoo Evolv can resonate with my voice if I speak loudly, or when I sneeze. The front panel will start vibrating audibly after speaking. It's so weird. Anyone else seen anything like that with a case before?
