Hi Guys, 

 

 

Just wanted to ask if it will be safe to do this, leaving my computer open and unattended just teamviewer (for minor monitoring). 

 

Computer specs are below:

CPU: Ryzen 5 3400G forced OC to 4.0Ghz

CPU Cooler: Deepcool Gammaxx 400 Cpu Air Cooler

PSU: Cooler Master Masterwatt 650W TUF Gaming Edition

Case: Cooler Master MasterBox MB520

GPU: Sapphire NITRO+ RX 570 8GB (auto, not OC but manual fans setup via msi afterburner)

Motherboard: MSI B450M Mortar Max

RAM: 16GB G.Skill Ripjaws V DDR4-3200MHz

SSD: Hikvision C100 240GB SSD 

HDDs: 1TB WDC WD10EZEX-00MFCA00 7200RPM, 1TB Seagate ST1000DM003-1ER1C

Mouse: A4Tech's Bloody TL90-TERMINATOR LASER GAMING MOUSE

Keyboard: Redragon K552 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard "Kumara" Red

Headset: Fantech HG12 Solar RGB Gaming Headset

Mic: BM-800 Condenser Mic

Webcam: Logitech C270 HD 720p

Monitors: BenQ G910WAL 75hz 1400x900 (6 years old), Nvision 60hz 1600x900

Fans: x2 DEEPCOOL Windblade 120mm, 1 stock case fan Cooler Master MasterBox MB520, x3 generic Blue 120mm case fan (case fans are setup manually to run at least around 80 to 90 if temps goes as hi as 70 degrees celcius.)

 

Running major application is black desert online (gamezb dot net private server lmao)  which my current temps in game at remastered high settings are:

CPU: 60 degrees celcius (it goes to 40-50 or so when I minize to tray)

GPU: 56 degrees celcius 

System/Mobo: 46 degrees celcius

SSD: 50 degrees celcius (this is where the game is at)

HDD1: 41 degrees celcius

HDD2: 43 degrees celcius

 

I will be back at home after the new year so that's why max will just be 2 days or I'll just shut it down if ever we extend lol.

 

I know my PSU Cooler Master Masterwatt 650W TUF Gaming Edition is
"Tier B - Recommended for entry level gaming systems only, preferably single PCI-e power connection on GPU, desktops intended for prolonged 24/7 usage."

as per the PSU Tier list here but just wanted to make sure before I do anything reckless like this lol.

 

TIA!

I believe team viewer is secured with 256-bit encryption and requires a log in...it's doubtful they'll be able to access your PC though that without your credentials.

 

As long as you have protection turned on via your router and Windows (or a reputable third party) firewall is turned on, you should be okay.

In terms of leaving Team Viewer on, yes, you're fine. Team Viewer requires you to actively allow someone else to access your PC remotely. I couldn't just connect to you and instantly steal everything then wipe your drive.

 

In terms of just leaving the PC on, yes. I had a PC left running for six-ish months straight to mine zcash a few years ago, and it purred like a very loud kitten from day one to day "shit, this isn't profitable anymore".

thanks for the answers :)

You're fine, TV is pretty secure. I use it all of the time on my work laptop and often leave it running. Never had any problems with security.

Actually, I was more concerned on my hardware/computer if it will not blow up or something since I have it overclocked to 4.0Ghz at 1.350v lmao

But I guess its all good, the computer is running fine as I can see via TV :

If your temps are good, you're fine. I have a 2400g oc'd to 3.8ghz and don't worry about leaving it on.

I always left my desktop and laptops on.  Except during my MMORPG maintenance hours which I turn them off and let my APC UPS battery backup cool down and doesn't drain the battery.  However you need to clean your PC to keep the airflow from being blocked by dust bunnies.
