So you were just showing off then. Fair enough.
I wouldn't be so quick to blame the case. With thermal paste applied properly and the PSU in place acting as exhaust it seems to be a perfectly acceptable case in terms of air flow, overclocking situations aside obviously.I'm glad to read you are overcoming your problems .... but I think they are largely due to your choice of case (although I'm sure you don't need me to tell you that). I don't recall where I read it, but I have seen something about the PC-Q07 not being suitable for quad core processors, owing to its lack of a case fan.
Yeah, I haven't really heard of that causing issues either... I mean, these things have a fail safe so if it was running fine it couldn't have been terribly detrimental. I was just a bit paranoid since my last computer always had slight issues since day one that I for some reason assumed I had caused by being my usual impatient self during the build.I agree that running with high temps for a bit really shouldn't do any damage. I've never heard of something like that causing lasting problems, even in cases where the overheating becomes critical (computer will shut down before damage occurs).
It's too late for the old case, I had to bend the poor thing all sorts of ways to pry the buttons out of the front bezel.You could fix your old case with this perhaps:
God damnit, my computer issues just won't stop.
This new eSATA enclosure I bought is being stupid, it will only work and show me the drives if it's plugged in and turned on before I turn the computer on.
The enclosure is supposedly hot-swappable, so what could it be? It doesn't seem like there were any eSATA drivers I needed to install.
