    At very least bump to a 1030... that GT710 will seriously not be enough for super high res minecraft.

    It's fine. Just like how no LGA1200 CPU is quad channel.
    You have 4 slots to add capacity. 2 DIMM's in a AM4 or LGA1200 board is fine.
     
    Filling to 4 DIMM's slightly increases performance, if (and only if) the DIMM's are single rank. (Memory speed has a bigger impact than this.)
     
    This means, don't worry about it. As long as you have 2 or 4 DIMM's, you'll see the expected performance from the CPU.

    sometimes. it depends on dual rank vs single rank. Im still not sure exactly how ranks work, ill let someone more knowledgeable explain it if need be.

    They'll work, they just don't provide a performance benefit since there's only 2 channels worth of bandwidth. 4x8GB is effectively the same as 2x16GB on 2-channel platforms.

    Ryzen CPUs are dual-channel max.  Threadrippers are "quad-channel"  ..

    Dual channel only, quad channel has ram channels on either side of the board.

    A memory channel is not the same thing as a memory slot.
     
    All four slots will work, and detect the memory. You would have two dimms per channel, and have dual channel.

    svmlegacy got a reaction from Letgomyleghoe in Where to download linux distro   
    Lack of x86-64 limits your choices a lot.
    If you're not familiar with Linux, I'd recommend Debian as your foray into it.
    https://www.debian.org/distrib/netinst
    Pick the i386 version. This version has a smaller download and will require internet connection to install.
     
    Edit: Full install here: https://www.debian.org/CD/http-ftp/#stable
    Again, pick i386 DVD.

    PLC coding isn't too stressful. You'd definitely want the newer laptops with (presumably) better battery life.

    svmlegacy got a reaction from ccccccccc in How hot does the psu temperature need to adversely affect durability?   
    Depends on where/what you measure the temperature of, and the quality of the components inside. Cheaper capacitors do not tolerate higher temperatures as much as some more expensive long life caps.
     
    Airflow, heatsinking, and heatsink effectivness.

    svmlegacy got a reaction from SorryClaire in Running out of (upgrade path) ideas on this one.   
    By far the GPU.
     
    @SorryClaireSee what GPU you can get in your budget. Market's tough right now, Indonesia included. 1060 3 GB or RX 570 would make massive upgrade. The FX-6300 is still an okay CPU for gaming, and definitely isn't holding back an RX 460. It would pair well with the aforementioned GPU's.

    If the existing install is under UEFI, then it should be stored there, allowing for a clean install of the OS, which will automatically become activated post-install.

    @ccccccccc
    I edited the posts I wrote. 
    I was talking about the high temperatures of MWE's SP1 (Bridge Rectifier). Sorry for the confusion.
     
    Literally. It will depend on the quality of each component and the design of the PSU.
     
    For example, in the case of bridge rectifiers, the specifications according to temperature differ depending on the type(#, #, #) and in the case of capacitors, the lifespan varies depending on the temperature.(#)
     
    In the case of EVGA N1, the operating temperature is 25℃ because the unit cost is greatly reduced, such as using an 85℃ cap on the secondary side.
     
    In addition, the fewer cables inside the PSU and the more compact design, the better the cooling because the air flow is improved, and fewer parts that can fail, so we can expect higher reliability of the PSU.
