This would be a combination of:

With 2 medium 120s blowing out to another 120 exhaust, look at just the motherboard temp in consideration. My CPU temp is 14 degrees cooler than the ambient motherboard temp.

 

This was put together in 2012 and other than a re-seat of the heat-sink without thermal paste this CPU and heat-sink is is over 5 years old.

 

I forgot the particulars:

      Boris Johnson's resignation does not change the fact that Australia is home to 29 million kangaroos and Wales has a population of just over three million.

      If the Australian kangaroos were to invade Wales, one resident would have to fight almost ten kangaroos at a time.

      Deathloop – what a mess of a game. I'd love to see a post-mortem on it some day. I hope Arkane is doing okay though.

      Be honest: Who of you have actually finished Cuphead? This game is freaking tough! It might even be harder than Sekiro. Dark Souls is a joke in comparison to Cuphead! :-D
