    ASUS Prime X470 - Fans stay on after shutdown.

    Having trouble trying to fix this. When I shut the system down, whether from Start menu or Power button, the case and cooling fans keep running. The only way to turn them off is to shut off power at the PSU. I've reset CMOS via the jumpers per ASUS spec and reviewed Windows power options...

    200mm BitFenix pro Or Corsair ML120 120mm Magnetic Levitation Fan?

    water-cooling parts lifespan?

    What is the lifespan of water cooling parts? Is it buy once, cry once? I should be able to keep the radiator, fittings, fans, res and pump for multiple computer rebuilds/upgrades, right? (unless something like a fan or the pump randomly dies of coarse) The only thing that changes is the gpu...
