Not really dead, just incapacitated at the moment. The CPU fan broke for no reason yesterday and I was unaware of it because it's a quiet fan, so i did not hear it shut off, but I think it caused some overheating issues and my computer is much damaged now. I have a technician who's supposed to call me tomorrow to decide when he'll come fix it.......but until then, my time here will be limited........rrrrrrrr

The worst part is that the computer is only a month old!!! I got a crappy fan......:mad:

Anyone else had a problem with the fan in their computer?

J/k, not lucky for you, but it'll give me the perfect excuse to let my parents to buy me a new computer. (I got like 400 bucks saved up already!)

Anyway, hope your problem gets solved quick.

Why bother with fans, there are the hardcore out there that use liquid nitrogen and the like to cool the PC to a lovely - 46 Celcius. That means probably being able to overclock a 3 GHz PC to well over 10 GHz........

Liquid Nitrogen is almost impossible to install if your not a professional, and is not recommended if you aren't either. Even when you install one, Upgrading your machine afterwards can be a hassle, and sometimes impossible. I suggest going with the old fashion fans :p
