Self contained liquid coolers are highly overrated anyway

LOL the dogs didn’t like that at all when you blew it out. I never thought
of using a leaf blower.

barnabyray says:

🙂 this is what i used to do at my old job… not my thing lol.

Surells says:

Interesting, makes me think might be useful to keep some parts of the old
PC for troubleshooting in future.

Guyfromhe says:

You can use a multimeter… Most people with any electronics experience
have one of those.

TheYhano says:

You’re totally amazing!!

CareyHolzman says:

@TheRanblingjohnny No, most users I run into need software that only runs
on windows and they don’t want or don’t have the time to learn something
new.

Michael Kane says:

Thank you so much, I’ve had numerous PC’s over the years and never opened
any of them up because of fear and no need. But when my PC would not do
anything at all I got on my tablet and found this video! It eased my fears
and a $40 PSU later I was in business. Your help was spot on, thank you
again.

Get a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus heatsink, it’s like $25 and provide very
good cooling for overclocking.

Keith Koch says:

What you do for your customer is awesome. I don’t get paid by the hour and
with limited staff, every time we fix something we try to fix other
potential stuff so we can have time to support other user.
