    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Are these ARGB fans AURA sync compatible

    The Spectrum II is a new case to the lineup, so we don't have much info on how case fans are wired. Normally it's one of two ways: Case fans are connected to an ARGB controller, that is in turn connected to the Reset button on the case. Pressing the Reset button cycles the fans through a number...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Stocking filler upgrade?

    Was chatting to wife last night and the topic of Black Friday Deals and Christmas came up, and she asked "Is there anything you might be looking at to add to your PC?"

    Certainly an unique looking case with it's LED disco floor front panel. But what are thermals like?? Front panel appears to be solid, and the top mounted fans/rad are mounted 90 degrees to the top, and have the PSU mounted directly behind. How does any air get exhausted...

    Some previews of the Lian Li's 2022 product releases here: Cases: Fans, cables and s/w: I like the look of the Lancool III case, some nice features to aid building, plus great 360 rad support. Good to see the connected fans are evolving too, be great if other brands could take a similar...

    I know many people post about their PC shutting down when they don't want or expect to, but in the last day or so I've experienced the opposite: when I want to shutdown the PC, it won't! In Windows 10, I got to start->power->shutdown and the shutdown process begins as normal. Eventually the...

    Hey all, While I’m very happy with my build, one thing that did catch my eye when it first arrived was the big “knot” of cabling for my GPU: The appearance is not helped by the PCIe cables having two connectors, so the spare connection on each cable is cable tied back on itself, adding to the...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST CoolerMaster TD500 Mesh Case Fan Upgrade

    Hey all, Hope this is the correct sub-forum, if not mods please move. I took delivery of my 5900X build just before Christmas and while overall I was very pleased with my first PCS/Custom PC, one thing did annoy me: the case fans vs cooler fans, in terms of controlling both the RPM and RGB...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST GPU Support Arm - Missing attachements

    Hey all, So my desktop came with a GPU support arm fitted, but not actually attached to my GPU (Zotac 3070TI) in any way, so it's not really doing anything at the moment in terms of preventing sag. Anyone got a pic of the whatsits that would fit on the arm and support the GPU so I can check my...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST New Gaming PC in 15+ years!

    Hey all, As the title suggests, it's been well over 15 years since I last bought a PC for gaming, and obviously things have come along way since an ATI Radeon X800XT was the best GPU you could get! So I'd appreciate some input from those of you with more knowledge of current specs. The main...
