Default Thermal No No (200k image)

Who says being A+ Certified is a good thing?

lol I say this because appearantly this computer was built by a computer store with a guy who had such certs

EDIT: BTW...appearantly temps were 60C idle and 72C full load, so my friend (The guys hand in the picture ) was asked to inspect this persons computer to find out why

Did all of that grease screw anything up?????????
I think the A+ employee is either a dumbass or he says he got a A+ cert when infact he didnt. But I noticed that the A+ exam has alot of old question son it that do not really matter in the modern computer technology world. There is stuff on there about ISA, and pentium pros. Not really anything recent.

INTEL i7 930

Nope, computer works fine...if it were AS5 it would be a different story.

But yeah that A+ exam is outdated. Pretty much most people here could get it easily

Its like maddox says, an A+ certification ranks somewhere between tying your shoes and not choking to death on your own drool in the spectrum of skills.

This is why you shouldn't trust shops to make PCs for you.

Its something so easy to do anyone can build a PC.

I may write a book on how to put a PC together in easy steps... No wait that would be an A4 sheet. I'll need to think up more content then.
