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.

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
