ASK ME ABOUT MY MICRO PENIS


Yeah that DPC is broken-bad. It's a telling symptom but unfortunately so much can affect that... I'd put memtest on a usb stick or cd and run its course (which would be embarrassing since it was my ram and I already did that but still ). How are Australian return policies on motherboards? Because all the parts seem right, and after a fresh Windows install with drivers the next thing I would do is find a donor motherboard.

Hey, I'm posting from the library but my tower at home was turning off and I'm pretty sure the problem was the power supply. The prongs were melted into the power cord and there was evidence of burns and melting and bad poo poo. I took apart my computer to extract the power supply and I was wondering what I need to know when I buy a new PSU? I'm not looking for recommendations right now but do I need to match the new PSU to the other components or can I just buy the best one I can afford? If I need to take compatibility into account, what specs do I need to look for?

Nice almost had a house fire. Seasonic, xfx, and match the wattage on the outside of your burned psu since I can pretty much guarantee you it's inaccurate but yes in general you want to match the wattage with what you need. If you have specs

My coworker is convinced that IE 11 is the fastest, bestest browser and will not accept any other answer. This makes me angry, as we both work at a Help Desk. Do you guys know of any good benchmarking sites for browsers that I can beat him over the head with, before I resort to spare towers?

I've hated IE for a loooong time but IE 11 is supposedly good and very un-IE like.

an idle temp of 60 is uhhh real bad right and is probably why all my games run like poo poo?

Its worse if thats AMD, but either way 60 degrees is bad for idle yes. If your games run like poo poo its probably because its throttling under load. See your cpu utilization % when you're idling (ie not running 100% all the time, bot, malware, virus, etc). If it's just idling at 60 degrees for real re mount your heatsink with new paste
