Tell Your Computer to Chill Out!
Mar 25, 2009
Nowadays, computers are the most direct conduits for information, and that means that they get used quite a bit. While they do have undeniable value, overuse will eventually spoil them unless something is done to counter it. Like many electronic devices, computers generate a lot of heat, so it’s important that they stay cool. And no, we’re not talking about the kind of “cool” you strove to be back in high school.
Since computers come with built-in fans , there’s no need to be overly concerned about overheating. Fans die out after so many hours, though, so it’s a good idea to have them replaced every once in a while. Most people leave their computers running perpetually, which puts a lot of strain on the respective cooling systems. Think of it this way: if you worked for 24 straight hours, you’d become more tired and less able to do your job as the day went on. So, just be mindful of how many hours your fan has put in, and when its shift is finally over, send in some reinforcements. This way, your computer will avoid disaster, and the digital world will be at peace.
