We've seen battlestations, but what about desks?
Is yours neat? What you do on it?

My desk is basically the left half of my battlestation. I just unplug the laptop and set it off to the side when I need the deskspace.

The paper is taped to the desk and serves as a mousepad cause my mouse for some reason will spazz out all the time, not sure why but the paper fixes it. Should probably get a lazer mouse cause the opticals can be funky like that sometimes.

Also that is the messiest desk I have ever seOHHaruhi IS THAT A HUGE BUTTERFLY TAPED TO 2 BLOCKS OF WOOD?

You mean you don't have a piece of plywood resting on top of two ammo cans?

Maybe I should skip a couple figs and buy a desk. But where would I put it?
>> No. 8086 [Edit]
the following is on my desk:

two dusty, dirty monitors
keyboard with who knows what lurking beneath it
various pens and pencils
spindle of blank dvds
box of tissues

i also have some shelves that are covered in dusty computer parts and cables

I just use my laptop in whatever room I feel like, but I have a music studio, if you count that. This picture is pretty old, and now I have a much better laptop and an extra pair of generic speakers just in case I need them for something, but otherwise everything is the same.

The heatsink is busted, so I took it apart... decreased idle temperature by about 10 celsius, but it's still too damn high. Overheats if I try to play/process anything heavy, too.
>> No. 8107 [Edit]
I just have a desk with speakers, monitor, and a bunch of books. Hardly worth a picture unless you like classical literature, science fiction, or politics and sociological stuff.
>> No. 8108 [Edit]

You realize how simple it would be to static shock that thing, kill it all, and not even know it? I'd tape some paper over it or something.
>> No. 8109 [Edit]
No, I don't actually... care to elaborate? What would set of the static shock? Dust?
>> No. 8110 [Edit]
Busted how? And if that's the case, why not order a replacement heatsink and change it out yourself?

But it's much more interesting to see a picture instead of reading a description.

You could build up a static charge on yourself all sorts of ways, like walking around on carpet with socks or shuffeling around in your chair or pretty much anything, touch your laptop, and the static shock fries your motherboard.

Well, from what I gathered, there's a hole in the heatsink (heatsinks are hollow and have a vacuum inside, or something?). I'm planning on fixing it, just haven't gotten around to it yet... and I haven't researched what kind of a heatsink it is, etc.. There's also the chance that everything is integrated to each other, since it's a laptop, so I'm not even sure if it can be changed.

>touch your laptop, and the static shock fries your motherboard.
Ah, that's what I thought. I wouldn't ever touch the insides of the laptop while it's on, so unless it can get fried from dust or something, I doubt I need to worry...
>> No. 8113 [Edit]
I dunno who said heatsinks are hollow, but I'm pretty sure they're solid, since solid copper is very good at transferring heat, and it needs to be solid to be able to stay in shape with the force that the screws/clamps hold it down onto the chip. Not 100% sure about it, though I've held notebook heatsinks in my hand before, and if anything they don't really have much thickness to them at all.

If I'm right though, it's a good possibility that you either just weren't getting enough air over the vents, either because of clogged vents or bad fan, there could be a crack in the heatpipe, or the plate itself just ain't firmly against the chip.

Also laptop heatsinks can very much so be changed (though it has to be for that specific model or it don't fit), they're just a bitch to get out and put back in and can have complex mounts sometimes.
>> No. 8115 [Edit]
I just heard some random comment that they have a vacuum inside, so they can rupture if they heat too much, or something. I really don't know jack shit about them either.

And yeah, I'm pretty sure it's the heatsink that's broken. The laptop used to idle safely around 40-50 celsius, but one night after intensive gaming for hours the laptop overheated, and after letting it cool down it started idling around 70 celsius... I removed the top, as seen on the picture, and it's now idling around 55-65.
>> No. 8117 [Edit]
Hey you've got MUSCLE figurines thats awesome!
>> No. 8118 [Edit]
>> No. 8119 [Edit]
Well if it happened that suddenly, then it has to be a crack, Though I don't think that information will change your decision to replace it. Also, get some heatsink compound cause usually it don't come with any.
>> No. 8120 [Edit]
Heatpipes are hollow, they have liquid inside that helps transfer heat by vaporizing and solidifying inside the pipe.

Have you tried undervolting your cpu? My laptop now idles at low 40's and tops out at 55 (even though my heatpipe broke ages ago), and theres plenty of decent software for undervolting.
>> No. 8121 [Edit]
Really? I always thought they were solid. Learn something new every day.
>> No. 8123 [Edit]
Ah, I haven't really mentioned anything about it, but it's not my CPU that's giving me trouble. It's idling just little under 45 celsius (though that's with the cover removed). It's the GPU that has unusual heat... I don't know if it's possible, but could it be that they have separate heatsinks?
>> No. 8125 [Edit]

Open it up and have a look?
>> No. 8126 [Edit]
Ah, yeah your GPU is on a different chip usually a bit further away from your fan and heatsink, though it's usually connected to the main heatsink by a heatpipe, which could be either cracked or just came loose.

This was mainly to describe my mess.. But yeah

I do clean once every two weeks or so when I get figs in, but after that it quickly turns out like this

>theres plenty of decent software for undervolting.
Can you name some? The only one I was able to find was NHC and that's severely outdated
>> No. 8189 [Edit]
K10stat or RM Clock works well for acer, although I use crystal CPUID myself. If you have a newer generation cpu, just google it + undervolt and go from there. Your cpu and gpu are probably on the same heatpipe, so lower temps will help, but it won't cure the overheating issue, eventually you're going to have to replace that broken part.

My desk(s). The upper part of the one on the right doubles as a pan- and dish-drying area because I don't have any room elsewhere. And the bottle of whiskey and the box of cereal have nothing to do with each other.
>> No. 8857 [Edit]
My "desk" is best described as 2.5x2 ft peice of wood on my bed. I can put it on my lap or leave on it on my bed and lye/lie/? down, sometimes I even put it on top of my night stand, then sit on the end of my bed and it's like a small desk.

It works good.
