    Not entirely true. Someone came to market with some ceramic bearings a few years ago under a custom name. I'll see if I still have the documents saved somewhere but I remember them flopping pretty...

    Yep, they're not common anymore as 2BB has become cheap enough to cut into pretty much any cost saving 1B1S used to have.

    Bad times, you can damage the PWM IC inside of the fan. You should be able to power any PWM fan at full speed with just 12v and ground as long as your startup voltage isn't too low though.

    SSDs ability to store data long-term is based on the temperature of the drive on when you write to it and where you store it as well as based on existing wear and capacity. So those figures are not...

    To be fair, many video cards add-on a 2nd 8pin connector (when reference is single 8pin or 8pin + 6pin) to make their custom design look beefier.
    Or motherboard manufacturers adding in a 2nd 8pin...

    As the others said, you're looking at old cards. The GTX 1650 Super is a better card (5-10% on average) in general. You can get a good Gigabyte model for only $160 on Newegg right now which is far...

    Depends on the brand, but it basically costs nothing for a cheap sleeve bearing fan. That cost is dependent on how many units you're buying but to give you an example; for 10k units of a basic 120mm...

    Oh no, i agree that at that close it's a problem. 6-10 feet away, not an issue.

    I'd say that more depends on the unit and use case. If noise isn't a concern there's no issue with an 80mm fan in a unit.

    Even then, some of the 80mm fans in SFX units are not awful if you're not...

    I always laugh at number seven cause it basically reads "there's no way two fans could be better than one!"

    I know that they're all pretty egregiously bad, but over time it just seems more silly...

    Depending on if you're buying now or waiting for a sale, there are plenty of better units around that price.

    Corsair HX750, RM650x, RM650, TX650
    Be Quiet Dark Power Pro 11 650w or Straight Power...

    No, I wouldn't say so. You have the Focus+ and unless you're planning on using both computers at the same time I wouldn't suggest getting a new unit. 2 Years old is nothing and it's better to just...

    Inrush current is the current (amperage) that the PSU draws as soon as it turns on. High Inrush current can cause a low amperage breaker in the house to trip if it is high enough or you have enough...

    X50 units meet ErP Lot 2013 efficiency requirements while the X00 units do not.

    He's got the Freezer 34 Esport Duo, not the Freezer 33 version. It's a larger heatsink with better fans. It should be fine for the 9700K.

    9700K has better thermals in general than the 8700K just...

    Yeah, that's a fluid dynamic bearing, but a proper one costs 10x what a basic sleeve bearing does. Fans are $2 parts most of the time, so people don't want to make them $5 parts as the increase to...

    They might be trying to say that their noise-floor is 32.9dB(A) ?

    Depending on the fan and their given information (RPM) in the graph, it wouldn't be an unreasonable assumption. Noise is relative...
