Background to the experiment: CPU cooling (LGA775 socket) was provided by the CNPS7700-AICu cooling system. Intel Pentium D930 processor, was purchased in 2005. At that time, quite powerful and expensive. Therefore, I did not save on cooling. Bought a Zalman CNPS7700-AICu. For four years he regularly performed the task assigned to him. There are no complaints about cooling the processor now, but it has become pretty noisy.
Therefore, I decided to send the old man to retire and started repairs. It is repair, because replacement is laziness and squandering, at least in this situation. In place of the noisy fan, I decided to put Floston, because the noise from it is less than from the dead, but it costs a penny in comparison with its predecessor. Continue reading
Assembling a computer, especially a new one, is a lottery game. A number of factors that are not dependent on the builder can lead to the fact that the computer will not work stably or even refuse to start. Factory defects, violation of storage (transportation) conditions, a crude version of devices and drivers for them, as well as the totality of all of the above in different proportions.
Add inattention or negligence when assembling a computer as a possible aggravating factor. What do we have as a result? Assembling a computer is a very complex and responsible event that requires attention, caution, and the presence of certain knowledge and experience. So it’s worth it, so to speak, to be savvy before rushing into battle. Continue reading
The topic Cleaning the computer (judging by the queries in the search engine) from the point of view of the user for the most part involves cleaning the garbage of the operating system. Those. the word computer is identified as an ordinary user with the Windows operating system. And it’s very vain, since if the system breaks down, it can be reinstalled without problems at least a hundred times. But if the computer breaks, then you have to buy a new one.
Therefore, everyone who means cleaning the computer means the process of cleaning the operating system from garbage and viruses, I advise you to think (and read this article to the end), since this approach is fundamentally wrong. Quite a lot of users monitor their Windows, but a very small number of them clean their computers at least occasionally. Notebooks are particularly affected by this state of affairs, as dust clogs the already tiny cooling system. Continue reading
