    My computer has been on for 4 days now.. no problems.
    I'm wanderin if after a week or two it might start over heating
    I never use Stand-by.. and I allways use Hybernate when i actually turn it off.

    Dedicated servers run 24/7

    nothing wrong with doing that. only thing is sometimes my graphics card overheats and i gotta restart, but thats only after a day of intense gameplaying. i just leave it off for an hour to cool off then turn it on again for another 2 wks or so.. id say my computer has been on for about 2 months, with the occasional restart.
    signature removed, check the boardrules.

    hmm, i been turnin mine off every night.
    I got a Radeon 9500 Pro graphics card that required one of those HD power supply cords to be connected to it also. It uses alot of poWer&#33;
    I am guessing mogadishu has a radeon pro card that has the extra power.
    I paid &#036;200 and dont want it to burn up

    edit:
    btw i got a CPU fan (slightly larger heatsink than normal... rectangled)
    and a PCI Slot Fan (than is put at the bottom slot on the computer case that doesnt lead to a PCI input)

    Yeah leave it on....when you turn it off the CPU cools then when u turn it back on it heats up FAST which can cause worping and isnt good...just leave it on..its better

    Dedicated servers are not desktop computers&#33; They are heavy duty machines designed to handle that much stress. If you leave the PC on for several days your chances will increase that your ATA hard drives will burn out, get bad sectors, head crash or overheat. If you have SCSI hard drive then this won&#39;t apply because they are mainly sever hard drives build to be on 24/7.
