Running overnight? - Page 3

post #21 of 26
My rig pulls about 250w at idle. I see no point in leaving it on if I'm not using it. That's like leaving 4 lamps on for the hell of it.

The only time I leave it on is if I'm downloading something, but even HD "content" only takes a little over an hour. So the computer is very rarely on when I'm asleep or out of the house.

Plug your pump RPM wire into the CPUfan plug. Then set in the BIOS that if the CPU fan (pump) drops below XXXRPM then it shuts down.

VERY simple and its saved my butt once already because I forgot to attach the molex to the pump after a mod.

My rig's on 24/7, I don't pay any bills though, the joys of living in uni halls. Next year it'll be off more often though.

Only time it goes off is if I'm going to be away for a few days at a time.

Well that's my usage right after going idle. I'm sure it's a bit lower once EIST and C1E kick in on the CPU and the cards go to 2D voltages.

Still though, I see no point in leaving it on if it's doing absolutely nothing while you sleep or are out of the house for a bit.

If you're not using it, though, do the environment a favour and turn it off or put it to sleep.
I have had a D5 die on me after 2 months that is why it's a small concern. I know it's not common.
