Hey guys, i was wondering what heat guns you use to heat up your rig after a session, whether to remove the pot or dry up any condensation. The hair dryer just isn't cutting it.

I don't want to spend a ton, but this is one i was looking at:


Also, what temps should the heat gun be set on to remove/keep away condensation? And what temp for heating up the pot quick enough to remove it easily?

Thanks, rabid

or eBay.

They can go for $15-30 shipped. If you don't use it that often, you don't really need it new....

To answer most of your questions: (1) a fridge cannot cool a PC (2) 64-bit OS for over 3.4GB (3) If a PCIe card fits, it should work (4) Resolution, not screen size (5) Report, not respond to Spam (6) Single-Rail/Non-Modular PSUs are not always better than Multi-Rail/Modular (7) Sequential does not matter as much as random for OS drives (8) Requirements come before hardware for servers

I'm with the others on finding one used if you can. You can get them for pretty cheap and you don't need anything epic!
