Specific situation? No. My psu overheated and shut down when the fan in it died. Great ventilation around it, but without airflow, would heat up. Coolermaster psu.
Like I said, many ignorant posts from ametuer builders. And still, no one has yet to mention a PSU overheating from being placed fan down in a case without holes on the bottom. All insults aside, I believe I've proven my point.
And Caelum is obviously an egomaniac who feels that the few times people have agreed with him are necessary to have in his signature. :-)
Worked better when i strapped a fan to it.
No incoming airflow, no working psu. I believe I've proven my point.
Sorry tick, i tryd reading through first, but was getting fustrated by WOT's. Lol

kb/s is a realistic benchmark of actual download speed in that I'm truly downloading so many kilobytes every second - which will equate to megabytes, and eventually gigabytes and terabytes. Those same numbers are used for my storage drives and every file size in the world. So I can do the math in my head to figure out how long a download will take when seeing file size. I know which file sizes will fit on my hard drives and which won't. This system makes sense and is easy for me to understand, because it all ties together. In the old days, a 7 GB modem told me that it was capable of transferring 7 GB of data over an hour. That's simple for me to understand and again, it all ties together. Obviously modems are much faster now, but that was an example from a decade ago.
I can't do the same with Mbps, as it's not an accurate way of telling me how much actual data I'm downloading per second, per minute, or per hour. Can anyone honestly say that they can translate Mbps into actual download time with various file sizes in their head? To do the math I need a calculator (maybe I'm special that way). I have to convert Mbps to bytes and then back to kbs, in order to understand how much data is actually being transferred and at what speed.
So laugh all you want. Using Mbps for a measurement of data transfer speeds is nothing more than a complicated system of doing what browsers, modems, and ISPs have done for years simply - in my humble opinion. :-)
Here's some help for those who don't understand, or would like to learn more about Mbps:
On a side note, you can't work out how fast a file will download based on your connection speed... ever.
If you have an 8Mbit connection, it doesn't include any overheads at all. It's the absolute peak data that can be transferred.
This is almost exactly the opposite to having a protocol that allows speed-up of data transfer by compression or something similar such as rsync.
In effect the overheads equate to more data that must be communicated (that aren't part of the data you are downloading).
On top of which, the quality of the CDN you are downloading from will have a massive impact on the speed you can download a file 8MBit or not.
After all, how many ADSL2 users who can theoretically transfer much higher than 1MBps get that speed routinely? Maybe when the CDN has files cached locally or within your ISP.

Don't forget this comment, so I doubt he will reply. I have my own theory as to the fate of his computer business. ;)
But as consolation to you, we've retired our computer businesses and I won't be posting here much anymore. Rest in peace! :-)
