    I used to do something similar in my reviewing days. I had a lot of Molex-Molex adapters (they came from fans). Simply remove the 12V line, and if necessary move the 5V line. When you have a Molex...

    Oklahoma Wolf did a review of that PSU on this website in 2009. I remember it because that review caused me to buy the blue LED version of that PSU. The original had trouble -- it was 2010 so I don't...

    Are we to suppose that people in India are satisfied with 1100W input (5W x 220V) since nobody needs that much (/sarcasm)?

    Some people clean their IHS's with alcohol. Although the recommended wipe is coffee filters (lintless and inexpensive), there are some benighted souls who use TP for cleaning up their TIM.

    I suspect by TP you men 'thermal paste,' but I always thought of TP as an initialism for 'toilet paper.' I've seen thermal interface material referred to as TIM.

    I don't know about that, but a long time ago someone advocated putting 12v together with -12v to get 24v. Never tried it, myself.

    Edit: but occasionally fan-makers got 7v by combining 12v and 5v....

    Funny. I always thought that AIO developers had picked the best fans for the purpose. As for quietness: it depended on the AIO. A single-fan AIO would at best cool even with a heatsink. This was...

    Having tested both heatsinks and AIO's, I must take issue with the 'AIO's are quieter' message; they are not. An AIO merely moves the heat transfer from next to the CPU (heatsinks) to a remote...

    What you are describing is close to the setup I used to test heatsinks: I had an i7 8700k OC'd to 5.0GHz with AVX2 enabled. The software was the LinX 0.6.5 frontend for Linpack. The Vcore was 1.37v...

    Let us imagine that everyone has gone to ATX12VO. How is the 5V for standby and SATA generated? USB3/3.1, for that matter?

    OK. I have looked through the forum, and the posts assume information that I do not know. I did a websearch and found an Intel PDF on ATX12VO PSUs. So, the information I am lacking: is this going to...
