Good luck with finals everyone.

You could take some inspiration from some of these channel and make a bunch of crazy **** like them.

Not to be mean, but it would likely be better if you just wrote it in your native language and we can use a translator to better understand your question.

Forum Topic "Gold"

tragiktimes101 1 Build 1 point 1 day ago

Or water. I mean, I guess in the end air. But, if something is cooled via sea water that heat would dissipate through the water more quickly and completely that it would transfer to the air at the surface.

I feel like we're on the same page here anyway so the point is moot.

You like De? Cuz De Fine.

Pretty sure I'm using that right.

Forum Topic "Gold"

tragiktimes101 1 Build 1 point 1 day ago

Air is not the only medium that heat can be dissipated into. Therefore the airs rate of absorption is not necessarily the largest, or even a factor in heat dissipation. In PC cooling, sure. In the heat dissipation of satellite electronics, no. That heat is dissipated through radiation alone. That is the point that I am making.

Forum Topic "Gold"

tragiktimes101 1 Build 1 point 1 day ago

It doesn't change the rate of absorption only how much is available to absorb

You are still limited by the absorption rate of the material used to cool the heatsink.

Of course. But the rate in which the air can dissipate heat is not necessarily the major limiting factor in the dissipation of heat. Depends on a host of factors.

Forum Topic "DVD or Flash Drive?"

tragiktimes101 1 Build 1 point 1 day ago

You got a half baked answer for two and a "dunno" for three. lol. Couldn't really think of more than one reason for my preference.

Forum Topic "Gold"

tragiktimes101 1 Build 1 point 1 day ago

Not technically true. Radiative dissipation does occur, although quite minimal compared to convective and conductive cooling. Otherwise, an infrared camera would not pick up the heat.

That being said, conductivity stops being a factor when equilibrium is met, true. But, that's why I mentioned advective cooling as well, which can renew the imbalance.

Forum Topic "DVD or Flash Drive?"

tragiktimes101 1 Build 1 point 1 day ago

That's condescending. I have only one reason. Does that make me lazy?

Forum Topic "Gold"

tragiktimes101 1 Build 1 point 1 day ago

You're only looking at convective cooling. Not advective, conductive, or radiative.

Forum Topic "Gold"

tragiktimes101 1 Build 1 point 1 day ago

You can just look it up. Conductivity (both thermal and electrical), temperature coefficients, and reactivity are all well known and documented.

Forum Topic "Gold"

tragiktimes101 1 Build 1 point 1 day ago

Gold is one of the most non-reactive elements. It is less prone to corrosion than silver.

Forum Topic "Are your components overclocked?"

tragiktimes101 1 Build 1 point 1 day ago

They were all stable at slightly higher levels, but I dialed them back a bit to decrease the voltage and thermals.

Forum Topic "DVD or Flash Drive?"

tragiktimes101 1 Build 1 point 1 day ago

3 reasons seems like a bit much. Maybe just one reason?

Forum Topic "Gold"

tragiktimes101 1 Build 1 point 1 day ago

Thermal conductivity covers both absorption of heat as well as dissipation, given that all other factors remain constant. The faster a material can heat up the faster it dissipates that heat.

Forum Topic "Gold"

tragiktimes101 1 Build 1 point 1 day ago

No, gold has a lower electrical conductivity than copper, and thus has an increased resistance to electrical flow. Silver, on the other hand, has a higher electrical conductivity and a lower resistivity to the flow of electrons than copper does.

Generally, electrical and thermal conductivity are somewhat closely related (although this is not always the case), so copper is better at dissipating heat than gold, but less so than silver (although copper has a higher melting point than silver, while copper and gold have very similar melting points).

Now, when deciding what material to use for a circuit, you have to weigh many factors beyond just thermal conductivity, temperature coefficients, and electrical conductivity. You also need to factor in the cost of the heat loss to determine if that warrants the higher priced material. For example, many electrical lines in the US use aluminum due to the lower cost and corrosion resistance compared to the more conductive, but higher priced materials like copper, gold, and silver.

Forum Topic "Most beneficial upgrade"

tragiktimes101 1 Build 1 point 1 day ago

I disagree with them. A 6700 wouldn't run much and would be a good place to upgrade. So long as you can find one reasonbly priced.

Forum Topic "Are your components overclocked?"

tragiktimes101 1 Build 1 point 1 day ago

Yes. My 7700K is at 5.0 GHz, RX 580 is at 1450 MHz, and cheapo DDR4 is at 2933 MHz.

I'm not sure if I would recommend Prime95. That may push a CPU too hard.

Forum Topic "Investing in a stock as a teen"

tragiktimes101 1 Build 1 point 4 days ago

Just looked into it:

In 2018, if you are under age 65 and single, you must file a tax return if you earn $12,000 or more, which is the 2018 standard deduction for a single taxpayer.

I guess it's increased quite a bit since I was a teenager, lol. They won't qualify for the personal exemption, though, and will have to be sure to mark that they can be claimed as a dependent on someone else's tax return in the designated field.

Forum Topic "Investing in a stock as a teen"

tragiktimes101 1 Build 2 points 4 days ago

Technically only if over a certain yearly income threshold (I think around 5k). But, it benefits you to regardless so you can get some taxes back.

That's a silly thing to say. NVMe drives are SSDs. But, go on, keep saying how you are such a great builder. While not knowing something so basic.

I'd say it was the first five.

Yeah, it's really simple. I use it for dangerous day trading, lol.

Forum Topic "Investing in a stock as a teen"

Yes, I do. I recommend RobinHood. I've been using it for trading for a while now and I really like its interface. It also doesn't carry the fees some stock trading companies do.

Forum Topic "I'm being unfairly down voted"

tragiktimes101 1 Build 1 point 4 days ago

NVMe nearly never noticeably affects boot times due to the initiation process delay with them. A standard SATA SSD will have nearly identical boot times. Same goes for all but large file transfers due to the already high speeds of SATA SSDs. You are NOT going to notice that .1s second.
