Noctua NH-U/C12P - Page 73

post #721 of 780
Try having a computer since 1986 "like new". If I didn't lose that Timex-Sinclair in the fire (and yes, when you lose a house to it you also tend to be a tad more aware of heat and wiring!), it too would've been working today.

Some folks like pushing the envelope because they can. Others learned that even though it's possible, it's not always the most wise choice for their investment.

Umm...why would i want to use a computer that's that old? lol

The Noctua does it's job, and makes my Q6600 happy and cool. End of story!

Because collector items are worth a lot more money, later.

When you get older you'll understand what investing is truly about (and it's not selling parts today to pay for some tomorrow, at a loss, either).

Noctua will keep things cool, and hopefully well below 115F, too.

LOL any comptuer hardware is a HORRIBLE "investment"

I could care less if my CPU died..i'd just go i7 anyway..

An investment is something like gold...which BTW i put $7,500 of my money into when it was $410 an oz. Look at it now. THAT'S an investment.

Search eBay for this "Commodore Amiga Video Toaster 4000/040".

Now how much can you sell your memory for today?

Some hardware will always be valuable, and more so due to nostalgia (as the Amiga line can produce -- think a relative still has one of his Amiga 4000 left, too).

Which is why I'll store away this Alpha heatsink (and probably this Noctura in years to come).

I can't seem to figure out what the last 10 posts have to do with "Noctue NH-U12P" .

Lets stay on topic here. People will treat their hardware as differently as they want.

Got one on the way, taking f*cking forever though because the place I had store credit in didn't have it from any of their dealers so they had to get it from newegg, and we have had horrible weather for shipping anything here.
