    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.

    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...

    The issues with sleeve bearings, at least any modern ones, isn't really the quality of the lubricant but consistent filling on the assembly line as well as leakage. Speaking with a rep, one of the...

    Patch notes only talk about bugs that they're aware of and that they know they fixed. The issue in Control may not have been known about, or that a fix for either Doom or Tom Clancy's was low enough...

    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...

    As long as the paste is non-conductive and non-capacitive then there isn't really an issue with too much paste besides wasting the paste.

    You can, but both connectors suck in different regards. SATA because the connector can't handle a ton of current and is thin / easy to break. Molex because the connector has loose pins and only a...

    You might have some back flow problems with the grill being open on the sides of the fan frame, but that would need to be tested and can have different results based on the orientation of the unit.

    If designed right, it will have zero effect on airflow or pressure but can have a positive effect on noise.

    Designed wrong, and all of those categories can go bad.

    EVGA's quality is all over the place, but off the top of my head;

    EVGA P2, T2, G2, & G3 units are all worthwhile.

    My suggestion would also be to pick up the Corsair or Be Quiet! units. Seasonic's Focus platform has some...
