    Unlimited FPS?

    Probably. Similar thing happens in Minecraft (where I even get some coil whine because V-Sync isn't applied at the game menu, only when you load in to the world) and the graphics card is going crazy pumping out hundreds of FPS because Minecraft is a piece of shit.

    That's exactly what it is. Hearthstone makes my computer hotter than any other game. ;_;

I literally play osu!, CS:GO, and WoW. None of those are particularly graphics intensive. (In fact, I could probably get by with an IGP/APU.)
    Yeah Linus did a review on it and it unfortunately just could not keep itself cool. You're better off going with the Zotac alternative.

    Just forced VSync on in CCC for hearthstone, let's see if that helps.

    I own some pretty big fans. You underestimate the size of my fan collection. Really.

    There's hardly space left inside the unit though. And if you place them outside it kind of ruins the concept.

    Forcing VSync on for Hearthstone via Catalyst Control Centre seems to have worked, btw

    d) I've been wanting to replace my AX 850 for a while now due to coilwhine. So if I bought that I could use it to play around with the mini build and throw it in my main build when I grow tired. Also, Platinum rating and modular cables (have extra set of white sleeved cables to go with it). :>

    The idea would be to basically have just really compact, quiet and low power machine I could use during summer to reduce the heat. Dunno what the hell I'd do afterwards. Maybe seat it in the living room and use as media PC? Only problem is that I don't really have a living room nor TV atm.
    What motherboard is in your main build? That might be why.

    Depending on whether you mean computer or room temperature, I would advice you to go water cooling instead. Especially since you don't have a plan for it outside of summer computering.

    Also, my Hearthstone caps FPS at 60 automagically. Which is great, because it used to be 30. It annoyed me for no reason.

    It happened to me way too much when playing BF3 on Windows 7 even with 2GB cards. The fix is just using Windows 8, the desktop in windows 7 still runs at dx9.

    Because you'd be most likely cpu bound in your other games therefore the gpu load would be drastically lower.

    With that many fans, your room temperature must be -20°C. You should put them next to an H100i.
    Speaking of fans, I realised yesterday that I have an AC unit that is really great. I've only lived in this apartment since early April.. Oh well. Never been in a house with an AC unit before, it makes me feel oddly special. In the short school bus type of way.

    And off-topic, but what does the acronym "smh" mean? I've assumed it meant "somehow", but it just doesn't seem to fit the contexts, and a needless shortening.

    I'll drive up to Illinois to indulge if it's any good. I've been meaning to look more into home brewing. I'm subbed to the Homebrewing subreddit, and my Chem professor does, so huh... Seems like a fitting hobby for tinkerers and stuff. What are you making?

    It's a 100% Columbus hop-based Rye IPA. No malt though, however some priming sugar will go into all of the bottles. It's very active this morning, I can happily say!

    The Rye IPA choice was the voted for choice recipe. (This was a successful Kickstart campaign!)
