  1. Extra pc at home


    Hi, I just upgraded my main Win 10 PC with a new motherboard and processor for graphic work. I thought I could put my old motherboard in a case and keep it for emailing and web stuff as I don't want to clutter up my new one. Do I have to buy another copy of Windows for that? If so, how much is that going to sting me?

    :)

  2. PC Build Steps

    Ok just because I like steps i am going to create some steps. Please give me the stamp of approval/disapproval
    • Install system in case
      • Remember to connect SSD and optical to same SATA ports on motherboard
    • Turn on PC
    • setup HDD
    • run blend test in prime95 for 30-60 min
      • run realtemp at the same time
    • While in Prime95 test
      • if CPU goes above 70c in RealTemp, I have a leaky CPU
      • if my system locks up or blue screens, there is an instability in the system somewhere
      • if my system does not lock up or blue screen, my CPU is not damaged and I am in the clear!
    What do you guys think??
