as not to turn this into a "how to abuse the rep system" thread; which should get locked then.

another manner i've gotten some recognition is posting (what i thought are/were) good, helpful news items. years ago i posted an indepth ananandtech article concerning all that frame pacing fiasco stuff and not so long ago a Hocp article testing a 10 y/o seasonic PSU that pretty much blew all that "capacitor aging" garbage out the water.

in the meantime, don't look for them as much as trying to be genuinely helpful, they'll come and probably when you least expect it.

or you can just get 35 friends and family to join . . .

edit: just keep in mind staff can and will remove rep if there is signs of abuse along with some ban hammer action. i got all happy one night after a benchmarking competition and handed out ~2,500 reps to everyone posting scores.

staff was NOT happy with me and neither were the folks who saw their flames snuffed out. got a "time out" for it also.

Remember the golden rule of statistics: A personal sample size of one is a sufficient basis upon which to draw universal conclusions.
Upload the computer to Dropbox and provide a link to it so others may download it to examine and give advice for repairs.

appraise peoples items in the appraisal section, chances are if they have enough rep to post there, they know how it works.

i'll piggy back on shilka's comment on helping people, sorta discouraging spending hours if not day(s) helping someone to hardly get a thanks. but ya know this isn't toms hardware; where people argue over best answer so they get a precious trophy (been there, done that, have the t-shirt). and most of all, for me, karma has a way of working out.

personally, i got a lot of mine helping folks how to understand bios modding their 980ti in the owners club.

edit: you really don't need to have the latest tech, a lot of problems just need some pretty basic troubleshooting steps to find and correct.
GTX TITAN bios help here 90% of my rep came outta GK110 club.

R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.
