ok, so few interesting points about this build.
this is a internet computer, and it is on 24/7. I use magic jack as a phone service and at $59.99 for five years of service that is really hard to beat. the reason I mention the phone, is to give some understanding why the computer is on and running 24/7. it does not go into sleep mode, or hibernate, as that would render the phone useless. so, this system stays at idol, but it is running all the time. the old D5 pump that went out on this build, was 9 years old, and had been running another internet computer that also ran 24/7, before it stopped functioning. that is not the best D5 pump that I have owned, as that one lasted 10 years, but this one is in second place. I have found that D5 pumps, will last 5 to 10 years under 24/7 operation.
anyone have a idea of about how long a FX8350 CPU will keep running after it starts ticking?
