Depends on your motherboard. You can check their website for that specific model.

If it doesn't, however, you'll need to go into the BIOS and adjust the fan curve there. One of my PCs doesn't allow me to lower the fan from 100% during operation above 70C. I find this incredibly annoying on that computer because CPUs on air spike all the time, so I just keep the curve more consistent at a sacrifice of constant fan noise. I'd rather more whirling sound all the time then it randomly oscillating.

Noise is one of the main reasons I water-cool my system. As long as any reasonable amount of air is going through the radiator, the fans don't need to ramp up like crazy. They can stay at a constant medium speed, low-noise setting.
Found it in bios.. switched the curve from normal to quiet... which basically lowers the first 4 points and then shoots up to full speed at 5. Seems better, but I may tune it manually. I can still hear the fans kick up momentarily on CPU spikes which is unnecessary because its just gonna calm right back down 3 seconds later.

Thanks for the suggestion, gonna keep playing with it.

Found Microsoft PowerToys, it has a thing called FancyZones and its ****in awesome. Exactly what I was looking for regarding window management. Highly recommended! You hold shift while dragging windows and it shows you zones (which you can customize however you want) to snap to. When you move the window afterwards it can resize back to its original position... peeerfect

Windows key and the arrow keys below del, end, page down etc.
Windows key has a lot of features.

Sidenote - For some unknown reason, my drag and drop is no longer a cut and paste. It is a copy and paste and it is annoying the **** outta me. I cannot seem to get it to cut and paste or why it is happening.

Nice setup. Should work quite well for 1080p and even some 1440 gaming for years to come. Maybe toss a newer GPU in 3-5 years from now.

I read a nice article on CPU effects on newer high end cards and how much they hold them back. The verdict was even the 3600x saw very little drop off in gaming performance and they postulated that those chips and higher will be viable for many years to come.

Software fix?
Look up common fan speed curves for your mobo. You'll have to go into the BIOS to set the speeds, but only takes a minute and can make a HUGE difference. First thing I did with my gf's new 5800x build after I installed windows and heard the fans ramping up way too early.

Yeah I did it already but I wasn't aggressive enough about it. Gonna push the curve further...
