    Back when I used my computers more I had a separate UPS for each machine and the router. It's been years, now; time enough for all but the router batteries to age out. The last hours-long power...

    You are, right, of course. But I would ask, why did they choose THAT fan?

    Before you custom make cables, do measure the PSU output voltage at every position.

    I worry about that, too. I will not use a sleeve bearing fan with a heatsink, for example. Yet we have a Yate Loon case fan that has gone for years. I have never had to swap it out for any of the 4...

    Do remember that when you are stripping down a system to the minimum, leave the pin connected that powers the CPU. It is usually a 4x2 socket at an upper-left position on Gigabyte boards.

    I had a Focus with a defective transmission. Turns out there was a nationwide recall. There's a batch failure for you.

    What I glean from your response is that we should replace SATA while we're replacing Molex.

    Forgive me if my info is incorrect, but I thought one could push more amps through a Molex than through a SATA.

    The Seasonic-made video shows that the "hub" is connected to the PSU by a modular cable. The accompanying text says the modular end cables are shorter than normal. This raises the question: if one...

    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...
