    CVT Noise or Something Else?

    Story: my girl's 2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek Limited has (what sounds like) gear or differential noise that increases as the vehicle speeds up. The noise used to be quieter but has just recently gotten somewhat louder. The transmission should be covered until 100k miles but I'm not convinced it's...

    Question My PSU makes this weird noise

    Hi, I'm new here and I wanted to ask about a possible fault in my PSU. I used an air blower to clean it last month (I now know that was a mistake). Since then, it's been making this weird noise. At first it was just after booting and then it would be mostly silent until I shut down and restart...

    Any way to go high end but fully passive?

    I know that you typically have to decide between price / space / noise and performance, but i never see anything about high performance/no noise at the expense of space & price. Is there anyway to make a fully passively cooled (no moving parts, no moving liquid) solution for high end components...

    Bent pins cause excessive heat?

    My desktop PC consists of Intel's i7-8700 non-K, 16GB of DDR4 RAM and Asus Prime Z370-A. It runs Windows 10 Pro. The CPU used to be cooled by Corsair's H80i v2 liquid AIO but now it is cooled by Noctua's NH-U12S. Both coolers keep the CPU cool when they're active and idling in Windows gives...

    Good, quiet ~600W PSU?

    This Coolermaster B500 has finally gotten on my nerves, and I'm looking for something that's not as loud. Be Quiet!'s fans are pretty damn good, got two of them in my case and they make a very quiet whirr, unlike the CM fan that came with my Hyper 412s. Spotted this power supply on Ebuyer, and...

    Logitech Z4 horrible buzz

    Hello! A few months ago my Logitech Z4 speakers started producing horrible buzz when playing sound. The buzz is coming from one of the satellite speakers. I tried changing PC for a phone (to check if it's PC's fault) but the buzz remains. I also tried switching left and right speaker but the...

    How can I build a silent system where (PWM) fans stop spinning on low temps?

    I recently stumbled on silentmaxx.de and the silent PCs they offer and thought about doing a budget DIY thing like they do. When I get a big ass CPU Air cooler like the Alpenföhn Olymp does the fan really need to spin when I am just surfing the web? Maybe I need a even bigger cooler like they...
