My System Specs


I've heard the same thing other then cleaning more often not much of a difference but one thing that has stuck with me for years is about 10 years ago I was told that if you leave a computer running all day it takes approx the same amount of hydro (this was non gaming ofcourse lol) as if you turned off and restarted your machine twice a day.

Not sure if its true but meh. I believe someone did a wattage thing a while back here and its like 11$ a month or something to leave our machines on all the time and do some hardcore gaming 3-4 hours a day or something. If I wasnt at work I'd attempt to find thread.
