So. This PC has caused me much grief, between needing certain parts replaced and then some.
My current issues are :
1 – Power Supply’s getting up there in years.
2 – CPU has some sort of problem. I’m fine on 4 cores, but being on 8 seems to turn my PC off randomly. Either it’s dying, or needs to be re-seated. I did notice some paste on the connectors at one point, so there’s a good chance we just need to do some cleaning. Not smart, but what can we do?
3 – Apparently, I learned of one of the most grave errors. The retard built this PC, he insisted on exchanging PCs at one point, and I’m left with this crapbox. How bad is it?
This was made as a “performace” and “gaming” PC. Powered by those fancy thermal coolant things. Of course, if you run out, and don’t replace it. What happens?
This PC tower wasn’t built for standard use. It has NO ventilation. In fact, I use a large fan because there’s no proper ventilation. Yeah, all fans lead air to go out.
WHAT GOOD IS AIR GOING OUT IF YOU CAN’T PUSH THE AIR TO ACTUALLY GO OUT?
I’m surprised my PC is as alive as it is today. That retard’s poor building made me believe it was fine, when it suffered many problems. In fact, I have to figure out a solution to keep my video card from getting too hot, while also dispersing heat produced from the CPU. It all literally bottles up in the middle of this computer, causing it to overheat.
So, what I have to do is figure out a DIY trick to move an outer-case fan to a specific location, in an attempt to cool down two areas, in hopes of finally being able to use a quiet set-up. It took me a while to realize how bad it is, because the computer cools down fairly fast after an overheat. Ironically. Tracking down the problem for months, and now, I have my solution.
More like.. how would I know all my fans blow air out after he “replaced” them? I didn’t have issues for a while because I didn’t play much games for the past two months.
Sheesh… I been wanting to do nothing but draw last month. I got fed up so much.
So… yeah… on Monday, we’ll begin tackling that. I need to come up with a possible case mod, but I’m an amateur with very poor craftsmanship, so it’ll be a shoddy DIY. I’ll have my boy do some possible rewiring, though there is a single case fan I need him to replace, and my fat hands means I can’t turn a screw-driver, making it moot unless I yank everything out.
Hopefully we’ll finally solve my PC’s problems. By that point, I’ll try pushing my PC to 5 or 6 cores, and replug the second video card in hopes of it all being fine. Sigh. Positioning, wind, science.
