I want to know whether PC should be shut down for cooling after it has been continuously used for some hours.If yes what are the maximum number of hours that it should be kept on?
Also what is the average power consumption of 17"Samsung Monitor (Samtron 75E), Mercury SW-880 Speakers, & P4 CPU.
Please help me out

Re: PC Life, no, Power On Time or Cycle time.

With proper design, they run 24x7. Try this. Leave the case cover off. If that cures it, talk to the machine's maker.

BTW, PC Life is about 5 years. Power on tine is what you seem to be asking.

Your computer can run 24x7 and provided its well maintained do that for a very long time, indeed. Protect your system with decent UPS, surge protectors, good compents anf clean it now and then. Being used in an AC enviroment doesn't hurt either. If you use the system intensively like under "gaming" enviroments, expect that the system will push its resources to the max, thus always give it the best you can afford to allow it to remain within its cooling specs. Quality is a value all its own and worth the consideration for prolonged service. Thus, if you buy a piece of dudu, expect dudu results. Sad

good luck -----Willy
