APH Networks: Thermaltake SWAFAN 12 RGB Review

In recent thoughts, I have had the concepts of awareness and knowledge in my head. What is the necessity of either one? Sometimes ignorance is truly bliss, but in other instances being cognizant is required. What separates the need for realization and for someone to know? Many times, the want to know comes from a place of nosiness or general curiosity. However, there is information in the world that people simply do not need to know about. For example, I do not need to know what is going on in a hospital when I have a five hour wait time. It would be self-serving to be aware, but I do not need to know what is happening behind the scenes. Sometimes, being aware is also necessary for avoiding awkward situations. This could include having the knowledge and foresight to avoid specific conversations with people. I personally am of the belief that there are very few instances where information must absolutely be known. The only information that I could fit in this category would be all personal information of the self. Other people do not need to know this information, but it is up to the individual to share it if they please. Will this stop me from being nosy or curious? No, but it is nice to be self-aware about whether or not I need to know something. The fundamental need to know is applied to the self, just like how a fan needs to know its own purpose: To move air. This week we have the Thermaltake SWAFAN 12 RGB to try out. Does the SWAFAN 12 RGB know its purpose, or will it just be an appealing fan? Keep reading to find out!

IgorsLAB: Cause simpler than thought? NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090, the scorched 12VHPWR connector and how to plug it in | Blind Test

Sometimes you also have to listen to your children and do a blind test once. Apart from the fact that there are obviously three or four adapter types.

Hardware Busters: Thermaltake Toughpower GF3 1000W ATX v3.0 PSU Review

I have already reviewed the Toughpower GF3 1200, GF3 850, and GF3 750, so it was high time to look at the GF3 1000. Like all other GF3 models, the 1000W member is ATX v3.0 and PCIe 5.0 ready, meaning that you won’t have to use 12VHPWR adapters with NVIDIA’s newest GPUs since a native 12+4 pin connector is provided, with a 600W rating. According to the ATX spec, a 1000W PSU should come with a 450W 12VHPWR connector, but no one has followed this rule so far. All brands and manufacturers provide 600W cables because it is easier to keep track of their inventories with only a single type of 12+4 pin connector.
