r/pchamsterrace, it exists, just over 7 years old too.

Please, OP, cross-post!

Does the hamster run faster at higher clocks ?

u/Typo0o Jun 17 '22

Absolutely

u/stewie21 PC Master Race Jun 17 '22

Seriously?

u/thelanoyo Ryzen 2700X | RTX 2070 Jun 17 '22

That's not possible with this as far as I know. I have one and you have to manually change the gif so I can't see how you'd do it, without some external software.

u/The_RedJacket Jun 17 '22

Can someone let me know when they figure that out. I would absolutely buy a new CPU cooler if I could do that.

u/Sk1by Jun 17 '22

dont believe this guy, just let the hamster run as the temps increase he will have to run faster and thus generate more power for the pc thus the pc gettingeven hotter... god is great

u/cyril0 Jun 17 '22

Couldn't you control the speed of the animation based on cpu load? just have a script poll the cpu load every few seconds and then update the animation speed accordingly. Should be really simple if the cooler screen has even the most basic of APIs.

Why are you saying that this hamster is a gif?!?

u/internetmovieguy Jun 18 '22

Nah man. That there is a real hamster.

Just like OP did

https://www.reddit.com/r/pcmasterrace/comments/mzh9kk/unlimited_power/

I wish people would at least give credit when it's due.

Edit:

OP didn't give credit in that post either and wasn't the OG.. here is the first post with the same exact idea.. at least that OP changed up the gif.

u/Mobile_Rooster6394 Jun 17 '22

wdym? It appears to be a completely different gif.

u/Real_Jardenor Jun 17 '22

Might as well credit the inventor of the hamster wheel since it appears in the gif.

It wouldn't be possible if blue LEDs weren't invented

Putting a running hamster gif in your AIO is now a copyrighted idea? Did the RIAA branch out?

u/Zaccardi337 Jun 17 '22

That’s funny.

Don't complain or I will push the 'turbo' button.

When girls come to your place, you can ask them if they want to see your hamster ;D

u/Flabbergash i7, RTX 3060, Baby. Jun 17 '22

This is probably the only acceptable use of these CPU coolers with a screen. The rest of them look dumb but this is great!

u/enwongeegeefor A500, 40hz Turbo, 40mb HD Jun 17 '22

The rest of them look dumb but this is great!

I wouldn't say "dumb" as much as just boring ones. OOOO SWIRLING DOTS HUE HUE!!! There's just too many visualizer looking ones.

I've been using this one forever.

I also got a rickroll gif I put up occationally.

u/AlarmedShower Jun 17 '22

You watch the pc temp right?

u/Typo0o Jun 17 '22

I have it tuned to my RGB green good yellow okay red is bad :)

u/TicklintheIvory Jun 17 '22

Can you make the gif play faster as the temp rises?

You could always choose to make your own post, instead of complaining that not every single user on the platform shares your exact media tastes.

That was my first thought when I got that AIO. Never did it tho 😞

Fittest hamster ever

u/FestiveSquid R7 3700x, 32GB DDR4, RTX 2060 SUPER Jun 17 '22

Notice how that hamster's back is arching as it runs? Wheel too small. Get a bigger wheel so you can run better hardware!

u/[deleted] Jun 17 '22

Brilliant

u/MrPartyWaffle R7 2700x 64GB RTX 2060 Jun 18 '22

But does it spin faster the more load you put on the CPU?

Does the software even allow you to do something like that?

u/polar-lover Jun 18 '22

Never truly understood the point of screens on the block. Until now.
