    Question Can't control chassis fan speed

    I recently started my 3rd PC build and have never ran into this issue before. I have Rosewill Prism S-Black case and a ASRock AB350 PRO4 motherboard. For some reason I cannot control any of the 4 pre-installed case fans neither through software nor through the BIOS. I have tried using the BIOS...

    Help me find some paint

    I'm starting a new PC build soon and I plan on painting the case to match the distinctive cream and brown shades that Noctua uses for most of their fans (I like to think if it as coffee and cream, or white chocolate and milk chocolate... Mmm). Either spray paint or paint for an airbrush would...

Fancy motherboard, fancy CPU, fancy RAM, fancy hard drives, fancy cooler, and a fancy power supply. Fancy GPU comes later when miners stop eating all the RX 580s. Now it's time...

    Does anyone know what the input current current (amps) of this fan is? https://pcpartpicker.com/product/x8DwrH/cougar-case-fan-cfd12hbb I checked their website, but they didn't say. I need it to be below .3 amps for what I'm planning with a fan controller. I assume it is indeed below that...

    Is this TOO much positive pressure?

    I've been deliberating on what fans to include in the Thermaltake Core V21 case. I've thought of replacing the stock 200mm fan with one that has blue led, and I've thought of putting a 140mm blue led pwm fan in the rear as exhaust. The 200mm fan's cfm is 148.7 while the 140mm fan's cfm is 20-97...

Initially, I was looking for a PC case, but two things: #1 - I don't ever use pens and paper, and desks with lols of drawers is a waste. #2 - I have limited space. #3 - I wanted one system for my video use and one system to act as my database server...

    Computer won't turn on, possible static electricity from headphone jack?

    Right, so I have a PC that is barely half a year old. I've had few issues with it - every once in a while it would just freeze, but nothing that a reboot couldn't handle. But since two weeks ago, it has just refused to turn on. (Edit) It's not a no post - nothing happens when I push the power...
