How <NOT TO> Build the Perfect PC!

19 posts in this topic

I just saw something i found odd.

I was surfing the web and came across this:

buildit_block_0.jpg

now Ive built many, many PCs but I have never used my Skeletool CX on a CPU. I might use it on the packaging, but never on the CPU! Id be hesitant to use even the screwdriver on it on any of the internals of a PC.

//for the record, i realize its a Photoshop (the reflections are all wrong -I can tell by the pixels :) ). but it still makes me wonder what compels someone to Photoshop pliers holding the center of a CPU and then label it as "How to Build Your Perfect PC"

definately, and PROTIP: thermal paste is for wimps. use superglue to ensure a tight bond between your CPU and processor.* (also can be used to fill in any cracks in the CPU/motherboard if you get too heavy with the hammer)

Lol should this be in the funny farm? Remember to solder the graphics card to the slot to prevent it from falling out :P

EDIT: @geek: Don't you mean use superglue to ensure tight bond between your CPU and heat sink or socket?

And If the wirelles card is having a weak signal, just plug it in the electrical grid (more copper wiring, better for the signal strength) :)

And to take care of the cooling, shove the whole thing in the freezer (preferrably a professional one!)

A light mist isn't enough, you want to immerse it like a Cray2 for proper cooling. *

* MSFN is not responsible if you use water rather than the recommended fluorocarbon coolant.

:w00t:

You really got me with this topic!

. The language is greek, but anyway, you don't really need to understand them ;)

In this manner one may also patch directly the wall socket with the ATX connector on the motherboard. This insures more stable overclock.

Also, as we all know, the lesser the air resistance, the easier the fan rotates. So in a complete vacuum those fans will last forever.

*go6o_kara and MSFN claims no responsibility for any damage caused by use/misuse or not use at all of any method described above.

agreed. It wasnt very serious to star with but this thread has devolved into utter nonsense, on a related note:

Hate cleaning the dust out of your PC? wrap the entire case in saran wrap to prevent the dust from getting inside the PC in the first place! (additional layers may be added to muffle any temperature alarms)

Everyone should be ashamed of themselves, and you call yourself computer experts! I mean even mygyver knows you need to proper secure all components with duct take and clear caulk and it doesn't hurt to add a few drops of super glue to the inner works of the dvd-rom, this insures no noise and high spin speeds.

Aw, XPerties, it's so much easier to just sprinkle a little sand in the DVD-ROM bearings to slow it down and add a little axle grease to quiet it down. That way you don't have to wait for the glue to dry.

I also find that setting a stack of cinder blocks on top of the the tower reduces fan vibrations.

And if you put a large magnetic C-clamp across your hard drives you can ensure that they will stay in place without worry of the screws coming loose.

I'm surprised that nobody mentioned these:

  • If you plug your PC into an AC electrical outlet wired to a dimmer switch, you can dramatically reduce power consumption by adjusting the dimmer, just as you would with household lighting.
    The main ingredient to a good working PC is the magic smoke contained therein. Many technicians agree; if your magic smoke escapes it will stop working! Building and using your PC in a hot, dusty environment will ensure its long life. Likewise, using your laptop near a large, raging fire will greatly improve performance.
    If you fear that your old PC is nearing the end of its useful life, open the case and use a small propane blowtorch directly on the CPU heatsink and other areas of the case specifically designed to collect heat. This will prolong the PC's life by adding more magic smoke to vital components.

What's even more surprising is that you dug up a year old thread.
