    vukos got a reaction from kelvinhall05 in I found two old laptops from the 90s. How much might they be worth?   
    Depends on their condition. Early-mid 90's IBM Thinkpads in great condition are starting to fetch $200-$300+ prices

    vukos got a reaction from dizmo in Buying a Used PC on ebay?   
    If it is clearly marked as used, then sure I don't see why not if the price is right. However if the price is similar to something new, then don't do it. Likewise, a lot of builders will list "new' gaming PCs that are put together from used parts, so make sure to read the description carefully and also ask questions. There's nothing wrong at all with used parts, but there is something wrong with listing something as NEW when it is actually USED. 
     
    Basically, if they are lying to you right at the start, then don't give them your business. If the seller is honest, then do it. I buy and sell a LOT on eBay so this all comes from personal experience.

    Got it connected to the real internet with native TCP/IP using the mTCP software and a ISA ethernet card. I can post on IRC chats, dabble in BBS channels, and even download files over HTTP. This thing predates the internet and is now online at nearly 40 years old. And typing on that buckling spring IBM Model F is just sublime.

    I'm not on floatplane, but does LTT on floatplane also use the same shitty thumbnails? I would legit rather pay LTT to not have to see that nonsense.

    vukos got a reaction from Zelenia in Reducing cooling to reduce overall noise   
    Sometimes with cooling, particularly with hot parts or when overclocking, it is important to get on the cooling way sooner in the temperature curve. The heat will sometimes run away from you. More heat = more electricity = more heat = thermal throttling. So by the time you are at 80 C and then your cooling starts to kick in it may already be too late to prevent throttling. 
     
    I would instead invest in silent fans, like stuff from Be Quiet! or Noctua
