  1. I am looking to build a PC on a very tight budget and I am now looking for a case.

  2. Hi, I am building a pc on a very tight budget. I have found a really cheap Xeon for £20 and I am looking for a really cheap mobo to go with it. I do not need a lot of ram (2-4gb should be fine) and do not need a lot of features (don't need gigabit ethernet, more than 4 ram slot, wifi, usb 3.0, and more than one pcie slot) therefore I do not want to spend more than £30. Does anybody know of a cheap mobo that meets my requirements ? Thanks for your help
  3. Is there any application which will allow me to create an exe application using a GUI interface suitable for beginners who have no understanding of programming ? I have tried googling but have not found anything.

    I have a small Youtube channel with approximately 40 subscribers. Am I allowed to edit the LTT logo and use it for my channel (non-commercial use) or is it copyrighted ? Also, am I allowed to copy the header ? linustechtips-2.svg

    @Volbet Do you think something like this will be ok ? And is the logo/header trademarked ?

  10. How long will a typical CPU cooling fan last before dying ?

    How long will a typical CPU cooling fan last ?

    @dgsddfgdfhgs In theory, it may just be magnets and copper, but there is also control circuits on the bottom of the fan used to control the brush-less motors. That circuitry can also die. By dieng I don't mean slightly worn out. I mean when it stops spinning due to excessive wear and tear. @Jurrunio By common, I mean something that is widely used such as the Noctua NF-A4x10 FLX

Is it a graphics card or something that can just be used instead of it ?

    PC suddenly freeze

    @ReckzoHD I have recently had the same problem when I tried to overclock my computor. Turns out the power supply wasn't capable of supplying enough power and the 12V rail was going down to 5V under load

    Could a broken mobo fry other parts?

    I would recommend that you just send it back and ask for a replacement to be on the safe side
  20. Faisal A

    Could a broken mobo fry other parts?

    Depend on what kind of damage it has done. If it has caused a short, damage may be done. If it is just a scratch breaking a trace, no damage will be done. It also depend on the location of the damage. For example, if it has caused a short on one of the power supply traces, there is a possibility that it may fry your psu. If it has disconnected a CPU trace, you may not be able to use 1 RAM slot or one PCI lane might be missing.
