I'm really surprised too. I honestly thought it would have caught on fire or violently exploded by now, but like an old Civic it keeps on truckin' along! Plus I never shut off the PC, I keep it on 24/7 and I use TeamViewer to remotely play Fallout 4 from my schools computer lab sometimesI'm really amazed that your machine is actually still running. Almost 2 years on a bad PSU, not bad going eh! http://www.computerforum.com/threads/dying-randomly-blackouts.230333/
Yeah, the only things I've actually gone through with are the new CPU cooler, new RAM, and replacing some bad fans.But looking back through his threads he hardly bought any of that stuff, just the CPU cooler!
Yeah, but unlike a Civic your power supply isn't manufactured using a perfect Japanese manufacturing technique and it certainly doesn't feature a VTEC engine which means that one day it will die. I don't think Civics die as easily as this PSU seems to have. I'm not trying to encourage you to keep going with it, I'm just trying to point that you've had these issues for nearly 2 years now, thought you may have replaced by it now?I'm really surprised too. I honestly thought it would have caught on fire or violently exploded by now, but like an old Civic it keeps on truckin' along!
I do have an old JVC VCR that I use daily to record shows. LOLI was thinking more along the lines of old VCRs, radios in computers, etc.
and I've stopped my dumb spending too. I've been concentrating solely on saving for a few months now.This. It's the non-computer crap he wastes his money on.
