any mention of a virus program, or a firewall
i leave my puter on all time i just turn monitor off when i go to bed or out
I usually just put on my PC to play a game or email and switch it off after an hour or so. I have recently got a broadband connection as well as a long list of pending downloads on my download manager running into Gigabytes. So I am planning to leave it on and let the PC download throughout the day with the monitor on standby or switched off.
Is it safe for the PC? How long can I leave it on continuously without causing significant damage?
My 2 yr old PC:
AMD Athlon XP 1800+ with stock fan and sink.
MSI KT3 Ultra 2 Motherboard.
Kobian Large ATX Cabinet and 350W(?) power supply and I have installed 2 additional fans in the cab.
Asus GeForce 4 Ti4200 128 RAM
384 MB DDR RAM
40 GB Seagate HDD
Samsung 17" monitor Syncmaster 753S
I run PC Alert 4 v 184.108.40.206 and it typically shows
CPU temp at 52 deg. C and System temp at 42 deg. C and CPU fan at approx 5200 rpm
Thanks a lot!
Happy New Year!
