Kung home pc, maaring masira nga agad. Lahat naman dadaan sa normal wear and tear. Even yung mga nasa controlled environment. Yun nga lang mas mabilis ang deteriration ng mga pc's na minemaintain sa bahay kesa sa mga nasa opisina.

Better to savor it while it lasts.

...set up powersaver mode for monitor and hard disk

... close websites that are loading things like ads as they will intermittently load things which in turn may cause the hard disk to spin thereby negate the powersaver mode.

... LCD monitor probably draws less power than a standard monitor.

ano kaya mas tipid?...magdamag nakabukas ang pc dahil may dinadownload using 256kbps? or kahit hindi magdamag...pero ang connection naman ay 1mbps?..watcha think people?....

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>



Depends on the size of your downloads and how often you download... and the cost of electric bill vs. cost of internet access cost. Unless you are a "dl wh0re" who will have a definite need for speed a 256kbps connection is good enough for most uses. Just make sure that the upload speed is also fast enough otherwise it will affect things like when you do online gaming or video chats.

Eg. Destinut Kibol which has 512 dl but the ul speeds that I get rarely go over 100kbps. :thumbsdownsmiley:

As for me, am already using a 1Mbps dl access speed... as my choices were either that or dial up. The laptop sometimes stays on for 2 days straight so I can't say that the connection saves me any.. :)

-you should turn the monitor off to save a LOT of power.
-take off the side panels of your unit but make sure no rats or ants will go in to chew the wires.
-install a casing fan
-don't overclock
-avoid putting useless cards inside that crowd the space and limit airflow
-tie the wires and cables properly to get optimum airflow
-check that the pc is not on fire at least once a day.

I also read in the extremetech threads... that those ramchips with heat spreaders don't really do any benefit although there was one modder who had 80mm fans set up to suck the air from his RAM. Maybe in his case the heat spreaders have a benefit but how many of us will mod-savvy enough to do something similar? ;)

depende sa pc! kung overheating pc mo at ang location is humid never leave it open suggest ko wag nalang. kung cool naman ang temperature niya at ang location is cool din ok lang yun. kasi ang on and off malakas din makasira ng parts.

For fans to work longer and woth minimal noise, put one drop of oil sa motor. Pede mo gamitin yung singer sewing machine oil.

Just one drop and youll see a big diffrence.

meron akong pentium 4 na pc na 3 years old na, ang nasira lang in the span of 3 years is yung motherboard(intel 865) nya. then pinalitan ko ng gigabyte(875) na mobo and for 1 1/2 year na, working good pa rin. then i have the second pc which is amd athlon 64, branded lahat ng parts but wala ng ibang add-ons, graphics card lang, ram, hard disk and dvd-rom. restart lang ang patayan ng pc ko esp. yung amd or kung mapuputulan ako ng connection if i fail to pay the bill.
suggestion ko lang is have a proper ventilation ng pc as what everyone is tellin and clean mo yung loob ng pc mo every 3 months, ganun kasi ginagawa ko eh.

Malaking bagay ang power supply, nung generic pa yung psu ko kailangan i shutdown for at least an hour yung pc or else nag hahang. Nung nag palit na ako to enermax na psu yung comp ko 24/7 for two years, reboot lang every sunday morning.
