"cigarette smokes are shown to damage fan parts"? is this true?

Yeah, when i worked at a PC repair shop years ago working on PC's that came from a smokers house was just nasty as fuck...everything was yellowed and sticky with nastiness.  Would charge extra for having to clean it up before working on it.

There are hundreds of poor mining rigs out there that are abused every day by kids all over the world !!


Mining rigs forced to work, exhausted by their cruel owner


That's some pretty harrowing imagery. Finally, it's good to see some intelligent posts up in this thread too, seems
 so far there's just been cranks and kids posting shit.

All them posts about "don't rest your card because of thermal stress" are talking nonsense. It's 100% straight up FACT
that resting your card will ease bearing tension in the fan and prolong silicon substrate integrity.

Probably worthhwile keeping strong magnetic fields at bay too, so don't get your speakers too near your rig. With respect
to that guys that said something about Motzart slowing hashrate, that's pretty hard to believe man.



You realize he was being sarcastic.... right?
You have no idea what you're talking about. Especially the refrigerator stuff. Go read every so often instead of posting on the internet.

You want to know why those magical machines keeps beer cold when they're inside? Because it evaporates liquid in order to keep the things inside of it cold. Do you know how you evaporate liquid? A baby knows how - you heat it up. Now ask yourself where does that heat go after its done cooling your beer? Into the room the refrigerator is located. So you can be extremely stupid, keep the refrigator open, and actually be ADDING heat to the room... OR you could remove the refrigerator from the room all together and thus be removing heat from the room.

Your idea of keeping the door to the refrigerator open to cool off a room is almost as bad as the idea of building a computer and putting it in a refrigerator to keep it cool.

I'm not one for donations but if you must go ahead and I will keep you in mind. =)

Most of these tips are bogus. In fact there are arguments that hardware is happier when it can "settle" into a consistent routine, a single constant(ish) temperature and run speed becomes easier on physical parts than spin-ups and spin-downs.

Where did this theory come from? Dude, resting your hardware is the best thing for its health.
Spin that bitch down and reap the rewards.

The more posts this guy makes, the more I believe that is his real picture, not an Avatar.

Why rest? It's hardware, not a human brain. Constant voltage is healthier because a PSU with shifting loads will be more prone to voltage spikes. Still unlikely, but resting a video card is bogus.

It's for the same reason you'd rather buy a car with 150,000 miles that's used only for long-distance highway driving than buying a car with 75,000 miles that's only used for city driving with lots of stops and starts.  When fast-moving parts constantly adjust speed and temperature, things move out of place and materials suffer weaknesses due to frequent changes in temperature.

I'd be more worried about replacing the thermal paste then resting the hardware. But that's me.

2) Try and keep the room extra cool, perhaps put a fridge in the mining room with the door open

Refrigerators are not magical cold-making boxes, they're heat exchangers. Any heat they remove from their contents is expelled through the coils on the back of the fridge. Given that this is also less than 100% efficient, an open-doored refrigerator adds more heat to a room than it removes.

Honestly people, L2Physics

Also, the compressors are designed to run for about 5 minutes at a time, leaving the door open is a fast way to destroy a refrigerator

I'm getting pretty sick of all the pseudo-science and fridge-based conspiracy theories up in the thread! You kooks need
to read a book and undertand before posting all this buffoonary!

Of course fridges *work* - they make shit cool, it's obvious, just open one up! Do you think because a PC isn't made of beer a fridge wont
cool it? Of course it will! The reason a fridge removes heat is because the excess forms drag on the electricity used to run it. Essentially
heat is removed from the server room via the electricity supply cable.

I made this thread in good faith to educate you people in the way of card health. If you can't be civil and praise my shit then I suggest you
keep quiet and don't come crying to me when your cards pop due to ill health!

What is this gibberish? This analogy makes no sense! A PC is nothing like a car, it doesn't even look like one! Its like
comparing chalk and cheese.

Lol.  I gave you the context of the analogy -- moving parts and temperature, not appearance.  A PC is like a car in that it has moving parts and temperature variation.  Chalk and cheese don't have moving parts and melted cheese is just awesome.

You're not even trying now. There's a saying in my country. If one person tells you you're stupid, they might be crazy. If two people say you're stupid, it might be their opinion. But hey, if EVERYONE tells you you are stupid, you should really look into it.

Btw, I think your advices are stupid, and you are intellectually incapable of understanding thermodynamics. Do us a service and "rest" your video card forever and don't post crap on this forum.

Worst troll ever, there isn't anyone who is really that stupid. Even a cursory glance at the Wikipedia page about refrigerator would disprove that and even idiots who don't know anything look things up when faced with overwhelming opposition. I think this guy needs a ban.

Look man, this was a beautiful thread before you and your misinformed brutes came along and made ugly. Y'all need
to learn to be more polite and shit.

With regards to the fridge, you got to understand that it ain't a closed system. There's energy being supplied by the
the power station outside right? That energy lost by cooling the fridge down, entropy is transferred out of the room by
the electrons. Seeing as y'all can't provide no robust refutation other than point to wikipedia etc I think we gonna
have to agree to disagree up in here.

Hey but no hard feelings. I'd like to 0ffer another great tip:
8 ) keep your machine clean inside, dust and cobwebs will reduce heat extraction efficency

Straight up it's true! That tar and shit from the ciggie will build up into deposits and clag up all the internals.
That'll prevent heat extraction and slow down electron flow. Your machine will either overheat or you'll get
timing error crashes.

Pretty much all goes with life philosophy, if you lead a unhealthy life that gonna reflect in the things around you.
So save your lungs and Bitcoins will be your reward!
