Man fitting case fan

Don’t get confused by the word “case fan.” It is the same fan you see inside your Central Processing Unit (CPU). It is also referred to as a system fan by many of the individuals like us. The name case fan is given to these fans because it is either attached to the front or back of your CPU case generally.

The primary objective of the case fan is to pull inside the fresh air from the surroundings and blow out the hot air of the CPU outside of the case. You can see a large variety of the fans sizes, but the most popular formats are 80 mm, 92 mm and 120 mm for the case fan.

According to the definition of the case fan, it is known as a device which is used to keep a computer or a computer device cooling by blowing out the hot air from the system outside and taking in the cold air inside the system, to protect the system from the excess heat.

The speed of a case fan is always measured in Revolutions per Minute (RPM). If a fan has a higher RPM rating, then the spinning speed of a fan would be higher. But many of the fans with the higher RPM also sound higher. So if you are going to buy a case fan, then you must check its sound, so that it should not be annoying for you.

Let’s check out the different types of fan used in the system.

Case fan– The fan which is installed inside the case, attached to the side of the matter is called a case fan.
CPU fan– It’s the fan which is installed above the top of the processor to keep the processor cooler.
Power supply fan– The power supply fan is located inside the power supply unit. It blows out the hot air outside the power supply unit and keeping it fresh.
Video card fan– This type of fan is used to cool the video card installed in your system.

How to install a case fan?

A case is always installed at the side of an argument either back side of the case or bottom of a computer (CPU) case. These fans are mounted with four screws generally. The screws used are either made of rubber or steel, but rubber screws usually are preferred. If you buy a case fan, you will get the screws with it for installing it and keeping it in place. Some of the case fans come with drivers also to work correctly. So, in that case, you will have to install the drivers too according to the operating system you are using.

Some of the factors must be kept in mind while choosing a case fan are:-

3- pin and 4-pin

A 3-pin fan connector has wires to connect, and you cannot control its RPM and speed by yourself.
But a 4-pin connector generally comes with Pulse width modulation control (PWM) feature. You can control the speed of these fans by using the software which comes with the fan.

Fan speed

The speed of a fan is always measured in RPM, which means how many times a fan completes a full rotation in one minute. Higher RPM means some revolutions per minute.

Fan size

We have already talked about the different types of fan sizes and the fan sizes used generally. The fan sizes determine the amount of air coming in and going out of the system. More the fan size more the air comes in and goes out.

CFM or Cubic feet per minute

It is one of the best specification to look at while buying a case fan. It means how much amount of air a fan can move in or out. It determines a fan’s cooling performance.

Wrapping it Up

Some Android Marshmallow Features That We Would Love To See in iOS 10

Android and iOS are the two widely used mobile platforms that dominate the entire world. These two companies have totally different business strategies and thus they seldom come into conflict with one another. Both these mobile platforms are extremely efficient and user friendly. I had the privilege of using both these platforms, and though both are my favorites but I found some features of Android Marshmallow that was missing in iOS. When I was using both these platforms simultaneously for many days, I was constantly comparing the features of these two platforms in my mind and that gave me the inspiration to pen down all the features of Android Marshmallow that we expect iOS 10 to have next year.

Virtual Home Button

We know that the home button in iPhones is kind of its signature style, but I feel that if Apple removes it, then it could increase the screen size without compromising with any of the functions of the gadget. Though iOS comes with a virtual back button in some apps in the left corner of the screen, but it is not as user friendly as Android platform’s one.

Location Responsive Device Functionality

Android users already have the privilege of setting the functionality of the device according to its location i.e. the functionality of the device will change automatically according to location like office, home, car or any other place. For example if the gadget detects that you are travelling in your car, the gadget would automatically connect car’s Bluetooth with the phone’s one. Or if it detects that you have reached home, then it disables all the lock screen features. We have hearing rumors that iOS platform is also going to support such feature from a long time, but we are yet to see it.

Multiple Users Support

Android platform supports multiple user support which enables many users to see a single gadget without interfering with the others documents. This is specially useful in a family where more than one can use a tablet and at the same time the parents can keep an eye on the activities of the children when they are connected to the net. Till now we didn’t find this feature in iOS platform and we really hope to see it soon.

Improve Proactive

Proactive and Google Now are the two virtual assistants that even introduced by Google and Apple respectively. After using both it is absolutely evident that Google Now is much better in comparison to Proactive. Google Now keeps you updated about your regular appointments, flight schedule, events and apps and I personally find it really convenient. Though Google Now is also available in iOS platform but it is not as efficient as in Android platform because of Google’s privacy features.

Modify Default Apps  

Though Apple gadgets are preferred by most users because, its range of products is extremely personalized, but while using it you may have the feeling that you are using a stranger’s phone. This is because Apple never allows the users to uninstall the default apps. Most Apple users would be happy to hear that Apple is also allowing third party apps in its gadgets in place of the default apps. Lets hope that this year iPhone users will have the option of uninstalling preinstalled apps and using third party apps.

Wider Range of Wallpapers

Android users can easily change wallpapers and a wide range of 2D as well as 3D theme based wallpapers are available to the users. Android users can easily download it and change it. But iOS users have access to a limited collection of live wallpapers and honestly it is not as remarkable as Android’s wallpapers. This is one of the most serious drawbacks of iOS platform on which it needs to work on.

Free Google Backup

Android users have the privilege of creating a back up of all your data and photos in Google Drive or Photos at free of cost. Any smartphone run on Android platform of any price range will have this privilege only of they have access to internet. However, iPhone users have to pay excess monthly fee for getting access to iCloud. It is time that iOS users at least allow its users to store at least a limited amount of data in iCloud at free of cost.

Better Top of Screen Status Bar

The Top of Screen Status bar of iPhone or iPad mainly consist of unnecessary things like the carriers name, long battery and other things which are not that important. However, the status bar of Android platform mainly displays all the necessary things such as alarm clock if you have already set an alarm, download status, Wi-fi and Bluetooth symbol if they are turned on and other important things that are present in the notification center. This is really helpful for the users and if we iOS adapts this feature, then we would be more than happy.

Change Emergency Alert Settings

Both Android and iOS has emergency alert features. However, in iOS platform there is no option to change the settings of the emergency alert like disable vibration or give reminder only once in two minutes or fifteen minutes. Moreover, there is an option to categorize between ‘extreme threat to life and property’, ‘severe threat to life and property’ and AMBER alerts. In iOS platform users have only two options ‘emergency alert’ or ‘AMBER Alerts’ and with the option of either turning them on or off.

Touch ID Should Not Wipe Away Notifications

One of the main problems with iOS is that whenever the user touches the Touch ID, all the notifications wipe away and are stored in the form of group notification. This is not so in case of Android platform. I have to swipe through them one by one to clear it. I found Android approach to handle this problem which more scientific and user friendly and thus would expect in next generation iOS platform i.e. iOS 10.…

iOS 10 Promises An Improvised and Much Better Siri

If you get annoyed while hearing voicemails, then you are not the only person who hates this ordeal. I find instant messengers and text messages are much better way to converse with someone, when you cannot reach over that person in phone.

Good news is that, Apple developers have come to know how much we hate voicemail and thereby it is trying to improvise Siri in such a way so that Siri can take calls on our behalf and transcribe the voicemail messages as well. This would be a major development that iOS 10 is expected to come with next year.

This service would be named iCloud Voicemail and it would let iPhone to provide instruction to Siri when they are busy. Thereafter, Siri is going to take all the calls on behalf of the user instead of automatically passing it on to voicemail. Thereafter, the caller can leave a message which will be automatically transcribed by Siri and saved in iCloud.

In the present iOS, some major improvements were integrated specially with regard to the virtual assistant feature, which was made all the more powerful. The virtual assistant of iOS 9 platform has become a prototype of Google Now, thereby assisting the users in all possible ways.

However, we could not ignore the fact that Apple’s interest in developing the virtual assistant, developing the iCloud service and launching of the unique SIM card concept might be an indication of the fact that Apple is thinking of starting over a new business. It will be planning to become a mobile virtual network operator in the future and that is why it has started taking all these baby steps.

We have lots more to share, so stay in touch with us for the latest news.…
