    I thought I was bad bending a pin first time I installed a CPU.

    Thats quite an impressive effort by someone I would give them 10/10 for effort and enthusiasm

    No, but your graphic shoves the Quote button (and any long strings of text) off screen. Could you please edit your graphic?

    I'm sure it would still do the job, I doubt an overheated CPU would be the first problem on that system :twisted:

    It still uses more bits n bytes than it should which puts more strain in the servers.

    I beg to differ. :dry
    I've seen many characters employed in an IT role that they have no business being in. This would be a classic example of what happens! :twisted:

    They can unfortunately. I remember a machine brought to me a couple of years ago that was like that. The guy had a whole tube of the stuff, and thought it all had to be used!

    Actually, the heat would transfer to the motherboard... NOT a good thing! :ohmy

    Maybe, but it takes a great deal of time to load, depending on network speed and isn't particularly useful. I removed the link. If you can save a copy of the graphic to your local computer and resize it so it doesn't occupy an enormous amount of the screen, you can post it as an attachment. Otherwise, don't.

    BTW mcrilly, for a newbie, you could try being a tad more polite.

    I'd repost, but your forum's settings don't permit me to edit my OP.

    I'd go into why you're last statement is a bit contradicting, but I can't be bothered. It's 00:40 here :(

    Maybe your cpu needs better cooling, you might be pushing the cpu to hard with settings too high for it capability. Your PSU might be crap.
