    Thermaltake Riing fans vs Fractal HP Fans

    The Noctua NF-F12 PWM is supposed to be excellent for radiators since it has high static pressure. Also they aren't really loud (22 dB/A) 2.61 mmH20.

    best mini itx z170 for 6700k ?

    I agree the ASUS one is probably your safest choice here. The ASUS pro gaming (ATX version) is one of the most popular boards according to futuremark Motherboard Reviews. I like going with ITX builds but it was because of the lack of choices right now that casued to stray away from it and go...

    best mini itx z170 for 6700k ?

    Those are really your only options. I think the ASRock Fatal1ty Gaming Z170 Gaming-ITX/ac is the best value for money. Lots of usb 3.0/3.1 usb ports, display port, m.2 socket, load of options in the bios. As a bonus: leds which show you which component fail to start. Like you said though the...

    PC Case Fan Comparison Chart

    I did compare other fans but they didn't make it to my list as I was only adding fans under 30 dB/A that I thought to be of good performance. I could easily make an excel spreadsheet but not sure when I'll get the time to make it. Of course if you have any suggestion please share!

    Triple M.2 Raid 0 bandwidth?

    I have another question. "1 x Ultra M.2 Socket, supports type 2242/2260/2280 M.2 SATA3 6.0Gb/s module and M.2 PCI Express module up to Gen3 x4 (32Gb/s) **" Does the M.2 PCI Express module plug into a PCI Express slot or the M.2 socket?

    Triple M.2 Raid 0 bandwidth?

    Well, with faster drives coming out reaching the 32 Gb/s cap there doesn't really seem be a reason to setup a M.2 raid. Maybe 2 drives but 3 would be a waste if you can easily reach max speeds with 1 or 2 drives. That said I'm thinking about just sticking with a single Ultra M.2 slot.

    Most computers should still boot even without a cmos battery. You usually just get an error and your bios settings won't be stored.
