    Hey. I just finished putting a new pc together and I'm running Prime95. I have a E4500. Core Temp is giving me temps of 54/55 for each core and I'm currently at test 7. Are those temps safe? What would be dangerous? Thanks.

    What cpu heatsink do you use with Stacker?

    I have a CM Stacker Evolution and a Noctua NH-U12F. However I had to remove the door that holds the 4x fans because it wouldn't close. But I'd like to have a heatsink that still allows me to have those 4x side fans. Any ideas? Thanks.

    Cooler Master - fans

    I'm going to be using 4x 120mm Noctua fans on the side panel. Should they be pulling or pushing the air? What about on top? Thanks.

    Dumb question....

    I just received some Noctua case fans. They come with a 3 to 4 pin adapter. Now what's boggling me is that some adapters have only 2 pins at the molex and others have 4. Is still ok to use the ones with 2? Thanks.

    Can this be done?

    Is it possible to use the Ultra-Low-Noise Adaptor that came with my 120MM Noctua fan with other fans? I don't really need them with my Noctua fans as they are dead quiet already. I have some 120 mm Antec Tri cool fans and 120mm Cooler Master Blue Neon LED Fans. Thanks.
