$15000 Buys you everything. EVERYTHING.

Well, I haven't built a computer myself; though I know most components. I don't want to say all, because there may be [almost certain there are] some which I don't (IC's, Resistors, Etc). I know CPU, APU, GPU, RAM, ROM, BIOS, UEFI, DIMM, etc. I've completely taken a several system apart and put them back together (I don't consider this "building"). I just haven't done stuff like OC'ing, POT tweaking, etc.
I do not have a college background per se, I have (I think) 1 semester of college, and that was in '02. I'm currently in the process of using various online resources for learning an extensive variety of interest.
The highest temp I get from my processor is about 61C after 12h of cryptocurrency mining but it'll kick up the dual upper exhaust fans and the temps will drop and average about 55C. Long and intense gaming rarely gets the temp up past 50C. Interestingly increasing my intake and rear exhaust fan speed doesn't improve cooling performance. For whatever strange reason keeping my intake fan moderate, the water pump slow, rear exhaust slow, and the dual upper exhaust fans high seems to work best.
*Does anybody have similar strange experiences with cooling?
*Anybody know a performance and temperature monitoring software that can spit out some charts for me so I can figure out a more precise setting for my fans?
BTW, my fan controller is a cruddy case integrated one that changes the voltage sent to the fans to increase or decrease the speed of all fans connected to it. My water cooling radiator prevents me from using the upper 5.25" slot for a proper fan controller.
Be sure you guys update your Windows XP machines and encourage your families and friends to do so as well. You'll want to upgrade to windows 7 or better before April 8th (yes they could upgrade to vista but that would be a bad idea when windows 7 is so much better). Windows XP is losing support on April 8th and that means a few things:
1.) NO more security updates from Microsoft which means these machines will become more open to malware and nobody will be there to correct the loopholes and nobody will be able to support or help you if you do happen across some malware.
2.) NO more new downloads for microsoft security essentials on Windows XP. If you have it you got it but if you don't then you won't be able to get it for Windows XP any more from Microsoft’s site. Third party download sites might have it but it is unclear if they will activate properly or if they are even safe to use.
3.) Support for Microsoft security essentials on Windows XP will end a few months later. No more updates for new malware so you if you catch something new you'll have a hard time to dislodge it.
4.) Software will slowly over time become less compatible with Windows XP and some programs while they may get updates from their vendors may start to get buggy or unusable after a year or two. You know like your video card drivers or your antivirus programs.
Microsoft has a nice little tool to help with determining if your machine could be upgraded to Windows 8.1 which is linked to in the article. It also links to instructions on how to upgrade a machine with pictures to help novices through the process.
The alternate route is instead of upgrading to a newer version of Windows or buying a new machine you can try and install a flavor of Linux to keep the machine going for awhile longer assuming they are very adventurous or desperate.
If you guys want a good long term heads up on the lifecycle of windows this is a great resource.
Remember folks, computer security is the responsibility of the person behind the keyboard.
Happy Fast Sunday!
We now have over 500 members! A year ago we had about 100 in a short time.
I'd like to bear my testimony to you guys of Christ's healing power and the strength the knowledge of his promises brings to myself. About a few weeks ago now my aunt of 63 years of age had passed away and gone back to her God.
Unlike other deaths I've experienced of close relations this one did not hurt. Its not that there was a lack of love for her, everyone in the family held her dear. I just knew she wasn't lost. I knew her spirit was with God. I knew that I would see her again. There was nothing for me to cry over since she is in a higher state than I. Even for myself I cannot find reason to complain.
My father this morning gave a testimony and spoke about how much The Lord had done to help him bury his sister. How it brought some of his step siblings together with him again (who had some tensions with him and my uncle during my grandfather's funeral). How he was with his brother whom he loves. It shows how much love is in my family even when things had been bitter.
I bear my witness that God's power can heal bitter wounds. His sure promises can comfort us that we cannot remember the smart. That there is a place prepared for us.
In the name of our Saviour Jesus Christ,
