Maybe my laptop doesn't overheat anymore cuz it's got a kewling phan.

 

As in it's an 8000 RPM jet engine, I added two more heatpipes, and I used graphite thermal pads everywhere.

 

Yep.

Chuck an RB211 in there. 420/69 cooling performance.

Nah. I've already got a hypersonic wind tunnel in there. I can instantly vaporize people who sit to the left of me (the vent is on my left).

This one time back in 2017 or so I came across a guy who was looking to make a new PC. He had given me a .txt file of his "dream parts list" and it wasn't even formatted right. He had the names of everything though and model numbers and all that. He had a H110M motherboard paired witha 1700x. That paired with a GTX 1050 TI and 32 GB RAM. I kinda just stopped talking to him at that point.

I can relate, one of my friends asked me to come look at his new pc he built because his CPU wouldn’t fit right, so I looked at it and he was trying to put an AMD cpu in an INTEL motherboard

 

he also tried to use laptop ram on the desktop motherboard

this conversation happened between my mom and me just before christmas. she was doing some last minute shopping and asked me for a recommendation for my uncle. he like to take pictures and goes on a trip at least once every 3 months and already has a dslr so i told my mom to get him the ryze tello as it is relatively cheap that captures fairly decent pictures/videos. i then told her that he would only need a mobile phone to connect with it via wifi. then my mom thought it was a great idea because they will have a trip back to the philippines and would be perfect to capture aerial shots but she is worried that it might not work there because the place they are going to does not have wifi. i then told my mom that it does not matter because the phone will directly connect to the drone via wifi. she then reiterated that the place is a bit remote with no/poor internet. this went on for probably 5-10mins before my mom understood that wifi and internet are totally different things. i had to use a bluetooth pairing analogy which thank god i had just explained to her a few weeks before. 😃

AMD processors run hotter than Intel processors and thus are no good.  This was in the Athlon XP to about the C2D days and even persists today.

 

Heard this a lot from non-techie folks who ask me for help in building them a computer and when I bring up AMD, they automatically say: Don't they run hot?

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016

Can relate. Navigation drills help, but some times you just have to treat them like someone who's still in grade school.

 

In my case, my go to line for such an issue: The URL or Address is that spot in Chrome/Firefox/IE where you type the web page or website you want to visit or go to.  You would usually type www first in that spot of Chrome/Firefox/IE.

Yesterday, I successfully put some Conductonaut in my overheating Dell. It's wonderful. But I had to be really careful because that stuff is shiny liquid death.

 

Skip this paragraph if you already know how to apply Conductonaut.

For those who don't know, Conductonaut has a high surface tension and its viscosity is like water. An "o"-sized drop was enough for both my CPU and GPU (both are bare dies), since it spreads very thinly. It's also electrically conductive, and will break your device if you put on even a little too much. Most people recommend electrical tape or conformal coating, but I used a clear bitter nail polish that I used to use to stop my nail-biting (spoiler: I stopped later and my nails are short). Works fine for me. I know because a tiny drop spilled on a covered capacitor on the GPU.

 

So a guy in my class is this classic rich white boi. Gives absolutely zero f[advertiser-friendly content]s about his grades, tons of money, no one likes him, etc. So he's looking jealously at my laptop and says, "I can do better than that." So he immediately orders a 5-gram tube (way too much) and livestreams it on Instagram at around 5:30. I know he's spoiled to the max, but man, I wish I had all that money lying around.

 

So a bunch of us are watching, knowing he'll probably mess it up like his grades, and spamming the comments, begging him not to do it or at least do some background research. He takes one look at the chat and goes like "y'all know nothin about this Pee Cee Science, watch this pro do it!" So he removes his 240 mm AIO, a cooler master ML240, one I recommended to him. He uses a plain paper towel to wipe off the old stuff "eeeeeew look at this sh!t" (I helped apply the paste because he'd be a royal d!ck to me if I didn't) and cusses me off. Several viewers leave, the rest defend me. That was Kryonaut, by the way. That's a 9700K by the way.

 

Then, he removes the GPU, a 1070 Ti. Using the same plain paper towel method, he scrapes it off as well. 

 

"Ya poor people watching this? Watch this gangsta build dis PEE CEE with style!"

 

Then, no sh!t, he literally uses HALF THE TUBE on the CPU and THE OTHER HALF on the GPU! Suddenly, it's a huge blob of each on the CPU and GPU, and we can't help but cringe and tell him to clean it up. He ignores the chat.

 

He then proceeds to re-mount the AIO and GPU cooler. He also forgot to plug in the GPU power connectors, but not that it matters. The CPU was DRIPPING shiny liquid death onto the GPU, more shiny death was rolling off one of the GPU fans. He surprisingly manages to hook everything up correctly, and is about to press the power button, and goes like, "Dis is the PEE CEE MASTER RACE, BOIS!" and presses the button.

 

Suddenly, there's an immensely bright light shining out of the tempered glass side panel that fills about half of the camera with Red 255 Green 255 Blue 255. Loud pops, hissing, and grey smoke are billowing out of the case. It probably dripped into the PSU.

 

He's lost all his cool and screaming like a little girl, running for the exquisite bathroom. He's throwing water onto it (a horrible thing to do in an electrical fire). We're all laughing, and he's apparently forgotten about the live stream for a second. And instead of lamenting about the thousands of dollars of electronics he's trashed, he says:

 

"Y'all been lyin to me! That Conductonaut sh!t is trash!" followed by more ranting and swear words. He then flings his burnt, broken rig straight out his huge window, spraying glass all over the adjacent sidewalk.

 

The next day at school was hilarious.

 

THIS ACTUALLY HAPPENED.

*insert hilarious story about dumb rich people with more money than common sense here*

Honestly, you should have recorded the livestream if you haven't.

 

Not only would it be hilarious, but it would also have served as a textbook example of having a lot more money than common sense.

 

In essence, this is Stefan Etienne, only with Conductonaut.

Work retail for a while. You will then have no trouble believing someone can be that stupid.

So here is one for you, about audio tech - a situation literally from yesterday. No bashing, just humorous accidental disrespect :D

 

Quick background: my girlfriend is very casual about tech. It's just not her thing. She has no idea what hardware sits in a computer, what is considered high quality and more importantly, how much stuff costs. Now, I don't lie to her about the cost of my hobby but I never volunteer the information. She just never asks and doesn't seem to care. It's fine since I have no idea how much the stuff she buys costs as well.

 

Main event: the evening. I'm playing with some music while she goes to the bathroom and suddenly she opens the door and says this to me:

 

"You know, your headphones leak sound so much that not only did I hear your music from the bathroom, I was also able to tell that you were listening to Lindsey Stirling"

 

I look at her sheepishly and turn the volume knob down - admittedly, she was out of town for a couple of days for holidays so being the only one in the apartment, I was listening to my music liberally and perhaps on the louder side. It's entirely possible that it was too loud. Also, I started the track before I put my headphones on so it's possibly she picked it up louder than it really was supposed to be.

 

But she is not done.

 

"Maybe you should consider changing those crappy headphones for something better that will not leak sound?"

 

And there I was, mouth ajar, looking at my $4000 MSRP Focals, looking at my GF, torn between telling her the truth about what kind of gear this is and just suffering in silence. Ultimately, she didn't give me any chance to respond because she went back to the bathroom and later we didn't bring that up at all :D

 

Apparently I will have to explain the difference between closed and open headphones because she is genuinely convinced that because she can hear my music it must mean that my headphones are poor quality.

 

To be fair i only recently discovered about this and i consider myself quite tech literate. Rule 1 of tech support. There will be dumby simple shit you don't know.

I recall helping a guy (with two PHDs) with an issue where his PC was only typing weird characters.

 

I went up to his desk, moved his textbook off the shift and CTRL keys and fixed his issue.

 

I think we've all made a similar "fail basic look for silly stuff" test before.

I haven't seen it, it's very nice. I really like the "Take Flight" track beause it has some parts where you feel like the music is drilling into your skull, esp. on good headphones,

 

Keep meaning to look into more of her stuff, only thing i have ATM is a ripped from youtube copy of her Dragon Age Inquisition cover. Would happily pay for a clean copy with no sound effects from the dragon or a crowd in the background but can;t seem to find it anywhere. And yes i know i'm probably busy committing a perfect example of the story type of this thread.

My stepdad is kinda the reverse, he has a lot of trouble understanding when somthing is stored internet side. Like his e-mail. He tends to thin everything is a program running on his hardware. That said even if he dosen;t remember what you told him, if you go "it'll be fine [insert more talk here]" he accepts the expert opinion, he's also ok when he throws me a curveball i can;t figure the answer out to, (a lot of it is ipad stuff and i'm not super great with those).

When I was young I used to play modded Minecraft on my old laptop. The laptop was having issues playing the game, I googled for an hour and realised the model of laptop has only 2GB of RAM.

 

I asked my father, who works in IT to upgrade the memory, he put in a 4GB SD card.

 

Placebo effect worked for 60 seconds and resorted to playing AoE2. Good times.

My grandfather comes immediately to mind... 

right around the time i bought myself an fist gen i7 i had a little stroke of luck with money and decided on getting him one too. he was already quite 'experienced' with using a computer for his photo and video editing hobby.

to make a long story short... In the years to come i had at least 6 months a year i was there every wkend unbugging/ reïnstalling / figuring out what the hell went wrong this time.
The most unimiginable errors all happend on that silly machine of his, always starting with a phonecall where he started with, i don't know what happenend this time but i just moved the mouse ………..
