Message 24503 - Posted: 21 Nov 2017, 13:38:46 UTC - in response to Message 24501.

I live in the southeastern corner of Washington state (tri-cities). And I'm almost 64 :)


Ah okay I'll be 65 next month. It's supposed to be rainy and chilly for you guys this week I think. Chilly with maybe some snow for Kathryn and just cool for me with the high in the upper 50's to low 60's.

I got a new for me computer yesterday but it doesn't work, it's an Alienware, my first, and it weighs a fricking TON!! It's a desktop about 8 years old with an i7-975 cpu in it, that means it thinks it's an 8 core cpu. But it has active cooling fins on top, they actually move up and down as the fans speed up or slow down, liquid cooling for the cpu is a closed loop system so no radiator to keep full. I removed the liquid cooling and put a Hyper 212 LED fan on the cpu but that didn't fix the problem, it turns on then of then on then off quickly likes overheating is why I replaced the liquid cooling. But that didn't fix it so figured out the problem is I have to hold the button down on the power supply to keep it running, I ordered a brand new one for $70 off of Ebay so hopefully that's all that's wrong with it now. It's a 1000 watt power supply, proprietary of course. It came with no hard drive, I have several spares and 12gb of memory and a COA sticker on it for Win7 Ultimate, so I'm really hoping I can get it up and running. It cost me $250 and with the new psu that's about the limit for me to fix this, I will buy a new motherboard and put it in a generic case and use Linux if I have too.


What a power hog! My oldest computer is running a core i7 950; it's next in line for an upgrade. Hope you get it running. What GPU are you going to use?

(Cool we're about the same age.)

Wow! The new firefox is fast. I'm using chrome on the pi. Considering it's power, it's quite snappy.


And speak of the devil, No Script just showed up. Upgrading the rest of my computers :).

Yup posting again before someone else posts means two things happen...1)you invalidate your last post so you are no longer winning, and 2)you owe a round of drinks at the local bar near you. I'll take a bourbon and ginger-ale please.
