Technically you are using a second sound card (or actually amp) if you have speakers on a soundcard and hook up usb headphones. Hardware wise two soundcards should be no problem, but windows might...

It would probably be more like:
"Why aren't the fans working?"
5 minutes pass,
"whats that burnt smell?"
10 minutes pass,

Very true. You have to use way more money and time on speaker systems to get them to sound as good as great headphones and you have to use way more money and time if those speakers are in a car. I...

Usually car speakers don't give a flat sound, the reason being that in the car their response will be nowhere near flat anyway. I'd say get a player with all the touchscreen and other stuff and...

Thats true and I won't be keeping the fans on 12v unless I'm testing overclocks or benchmarking. Guess I'll just keep a finger on the pcb when I do have it at 12v :P

Arc "fan controller" has me wondering

The arc mini/midi r2 fan controller is a 5/7/12v switch. It atleast looks like its just a molex cable that's been made into 5, 7 and 12 volt connections on the switch's PCB. Fractal says there is one...

Love the A/V gear, but your room did have one big plus in 2005:
Nintendo 64 (with golden eye?)
Also wondering how many metres of cable you've been able to hide so well :P

It really depends on the amp. Think of the specs the same way you would look at fans. They are never correct and some brands are more honest than others. When talking about passive speakers, the watt...

Much better then a 2.1 system? I'm guessing you mean a 2.1 system that costs the same? Because you can't get a subwoofer for that price, only a noisy box.

You seem to be set on getting that high fpi rad. High fpi rads need fast fans to get the benefit, but that doesn't mean a low fpi rad can't be as good in high rpms. Seems like your thinking "more...

Asking for temps based on FPI is like asking "I'm buying a used car with a 2 litre engine. How fast will it go?"
In other words it's just one property of rads out of many.

Doesn't the fact that you use fans on max for OCCT prove that 600 rpm doesn't cool the cpu enough on load? I won't comment on the planet side temp because I have no idea how much it uses the cpu.
