It's not even active or have any video playing, and I'm not even connected to the internet.
I overlock my Gigabyte RTX 3060 12GB OC with MSI Afterburner, with Mem at +550, Core at +55, Voltage at 100%, temp limit at 90C and power limit at 124 (which are the highest possible for temp and power). I stress tested it with FurMark for over 30 minutes and the highest temp I've got is like 67-68C, on very rare occasions it reaches 69 (nice), I got a 70 once and never reach it again. I've read that overclocking reduces the GPU lifespan since it causes more stress and high temp. But mine is no where close to thermal limit so I wonder if overclocking is harmful to the card if the temp is below the thermal limit.
So I was changing the case fans, after I put everything back together, I forgot to plug in the power for the GPU. I turned the pc on and I saw the white LED on GPU power port lid up and heard the fan spins like crazy (I don't know if it was the CPU fan or the GPU fans), I panicked and immediately turned off the power supply.
Everything happened in less than 2 seconds, I've run some stress tests and gamed for a few hours and nothing bad happened (yet?) so I assumed everything is still fine (for now?).
What happens if I had left it on like that for longer? And why did the fan ram up like that?
There is a magnetic top vent filter that comes with the case but it covers the top rear exhaust fan so I don't really want to put it on.
Yes, I know the pc is dirty, but I'm getting a new PSU after Christmas so I'll clean it then.
I have two Orico USB hubs, the powered one has four 3.0 ports, and the unpowered one has one 3.0 port and five 2.0 ports. If I plug the powered hub into the pc then chain the unpowered one into it, will the unpowered hub run into power issues if I plug high-power-consuming devices into it? And does it make any difference if I switch the hubs order?
Given that all of them are all powered hubs so power won't be the issue and you have enough space to put them. How much will it impact performance, latency or other things I don't know about? Or it will straight up kill the port if there are too many hubs?
