1 TB 3.0 USB External HDD
CoolerMaster Elite 130 case

Although it is primarily an HTPC, I use it occasionally for audio work, as well.

@coachmark2:

I actually have a Dell Dimension Pentium 4 that has been running pretty non-stop for at least 9 years and I have no failures, either.

 

480W Corsair PSU? Do you mean the CX430? I'm assuming so since the '3' and the '8' are both pressed by the middle finger of either hand. Even I almost typed "480" instead of "430" just now. lol

Again, why would it matter if you leave on it 24/7?

All my devices stay on 24/7,

My Desktop.. Overclocked to 4.5 Speedstep off. Been like this since I built the system. Only thing that happens is the monitors turn off after 30 mins

HTPC/Server- Stock clock Speedstep off

Surface Pro- Goes to Sleep only because of battery use
