And the PC overheated again...


Just to give myself that reminder that at some point soon I will have to upgrade from my 2010 A8 3870k processor to a new PC at some point.

Satisfying myself with a clean of the PC main parts and fresh thermal paste delivered tomorrow for the moment.

It'll keep on working will this ol' battlestation

I'm SO out of practice with this stuff. Good luck keeping it alive!

It seems to be something going around my house currently. I had the PS4s disk drive die on me this time last week which is frustrating as it's about a month past it's 2 month "we'll replace this no questions" warranty.

Just a matter of removing the dust from any fans and heatsink, then cleaning the parts with some isopropyl alcohol and cleaning the old thermal paste off the cpu and heatsink.

Should be good again tomorrow hopefully.

Could just be all the heat lately. It's certainly been bloody warm.

You sure it's not an electrical issue, though?

Yeah, I did wander about that but the kids pc was on at the same time and in a warmer room on the same loop as mine. I appreciate the debugging though

My lappy has a knackered fan and keeps telling me that it's a bit hotter than hot.

I don't want to upgrade just for that, so at some point I'll try to fix it. Hopefully before it dies...

Fun stuff Rychan. I love fiddling about, trying to keep my myriad electronics cool.
