    Upgrade to my computer

    Yea, that is true! It depends on who made it. I have a Corsair 750w in mine. But if he bought a no-name brand and didn't really the amps and such, that would be a problem.

    If you have Windows 10, go into your Microsoft store app and type "video to audio". I came up with 2 apps for this. I have an app called "Any Video to Audio". It works pretty well.

    Fail to load?

    One thing about Xodo is, it has an editor in it for free. The whole program (App) is free. I also have Adobe Reader on my computer, I use that to print out r/c plane plans.

    You should have at least 1 in the front and you have the one out the back. It's not just the CPU that heats up in the case. And why take a chance of the CPU ever hit 85c. I always see it as being safe than sorry, when it comes to the CPU.

    This is a general idea of fan placement. When you put the power supply into the case, you had the fan side facing bottom, right? And I have this sitting on my AMD FX 8320 CPU, it is a "Cooler Master 212"...

    Did I get ripped off?

    It's probably never been partition and formatted, just a bare drive. And I know about being on a set income. I wish I can build a new one. I built this one to last 5 years, and now it is 6.5 yrs old. :)
