Shh, nobody tell him about the servers that run the internet with days or weeks of uptime.

My computer have been on 24/7 for the past 8 years.

As long as you cool it properly, it's fine


Things I need help with: *new* What can Facebook do to me? Privacy Inquiries

Spoiler

 

 

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

 

Spoiler

 

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

 

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

 

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

 

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

 

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer monitors, Gigabyte, Seagate HDD, Kingston SSD, Razer (except their mouse), XiaoMi Phones

 

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

No. You're fine. Computers don't need to be shutdown. It's a myth.

 

5:18, for the bit relevant here.

Most likely will be fine most computer parts are made to last (My friend haven’t turned off in 1 week)

Longest i got out of my old pc was a month or close to that.

Didnt bother to turn it off since it had an old hdd and it took the pc a minute to boot so i just left it running.

Ended up turning it off cause i went for a 4 day vacation

It wont do anything, relax

The only time my computer goes off is when I get forced by updates or use my dual boot of linux. This has been the state of my computer since I got my I7-5820k in spring of 2015. This time also includes leaving super heavy compute tasks running the system pinned for days at time.

 

Servers will run indefinitely if nothing needs to be changed or maintained on them.  Basically it all comes down to if the system is properly cooled it will last for damn near forever without issue.
