【Jamesブログ】第4回:パソコンを静かにさせるプロジェクト!

0

    Hi internet people!

    Today I'll tell you about what I did yesterday and why I was so excited about it!


    Warning! The next part is very technical, but I will try to simplify it.

     

    As you all know, I am totally a PC geek.

    Well, my PC has a nice CPU and a nice GPU. [CPU = calculating brain, GPU = 3D brain for games]

    These two parts can get quite hot when I use my PC intensely. 

    So these parts have heatsinks on them, which are big metal blocks with fans.

    When they get hot, the fans spin faster to cool them down.

    The problem with this is that the fans are noisy! And I hate noisiness! 

     

    What can we do then?

    Well, the CPU and GPU are connected to their heatsinks using a kind of paste that transfers the heat.

    The standard cheap kind can transfer the heat kind of slowly.

    For example if you hold a spoon and put it in boiling water, it takes a long time before the spoon is too hot to hold. This is poor thermal transfer.

    But if the spoon was made of copper (Cu) then it would get really hot very fast!

    This thermal transfer speed is measured in W/m/C (watts per meter per degrees Celsius).

    For example, Copper is 398, Wood is 0.13, Lead (Pb) is 35. 

    So you can hold a stick that is on fire and it is okay, but not a copper spoon in boiling water.

    Standard thermal paste between the CPU and the heatsink is 5-10 W/m/C.

    One benefit of this thermal paste is that it is non-conductive, that means electricity can't move through it. So if you accidentally spill a little or put too much on your CPU and it touches other parts of the computer, it wont cause troubles.

     

    Yesterday, I got a new product called liquid metal! [Name: Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut]

    It is conductive, so I have to be very careful when applying it so that it does not cause a short (when electricity jumps someplace it should not go).

    Liquid metal is mainly made of Gallium and Indium, and has a thermal conductivity of 73, which is at least 7x better than standard thermal paste.

    That means that the heat from the CPU and GPU will quickly and easily be transferred to their heatsinks so they can be cooled down more easily.

    And that means that the fans on my computer can spin a lot slower to keep my PC at the same temperature as before, and that means my system will be a lot quieter!

     

    Yay! A quieter computer that has the same performance!

    I am so glad now, I can use my PC and most of the time my fans are actually off for total silence!

    Specifically, my CPU fan is spinning about 15% slower, and my GPU fan is about 20% slower!

     

    This is why I was so excited and happy yesterday!

     

    Was this too difficult? Should I do my old style blog-post?

    Let me know (or tell Kazusa)!

    See you next tim

      Hi Everyone!

      How are you all doing?
      A few days ago Kazusa and I went to see the cherry blossoms at Sumaura Koen.
      It was really nice!
      We got there before the illuminations and music started, so it was still quiet and peaceful, and not too crowded.
      However, it was still a little cold.


      Do most Japanese people go out to see the cherry blossoms every year?

      In other news, Kazusa and I made an intro video for our school so students can feel less nervous about meeting us. We added it to the top of our homepage.

       

       

      About my own hobbies, these days I am trying to think of ways to make my computer even quieter while keeping high performance. It is a difficult balance. I am really sensitive to constant annoying sounds, like a PC fan or the refrigerator buzzing. I wish to have a quiet home!

      I wonder if all the beeping, buzzing, droning, and other sounds contribute to stress for us?

      Anyways, see you next time!
      James

        Hey everyone!

        What's new with me?

        Well I started playing Final Fantasy XV on my PC.

        I've been really into it.

        That's why I haven't done a YouTube Live Stream or a blog post recently!

        Sorry!

        I heard this game wasn't well received in Japan, but I am enjoying it a lot.

         

        Okay now for the computer English series!

        We turn on a computer. We can also boot a computer, but turn on is more popular.

        We shutdown or turn off a computer.

        We charge our smartphone when the battery is dying.

        The smartphone suddenly turns (itself) off or dies when the battery dies.

        We start or open a program, like "Please open Chrome."

        We plug our charger in. "Where can I plug this in?"

        The holes in the wall that are different in some countries are wall (power) sockets.

         

        Okay that's all for today!

        After this post I will take a shower, go eat out with Kazusa, play some FFXV, then do a YouTube Live Stream about liaison tonight at 9pm (JST)!

        Check it out here if you want:

        See ya next time!

          JUGEMテーマ:英会話

          Hey everyone!

           

          Last time I made a blog post Kazusa told me that people wanted to hear about my life, not (only?) about new English!

           

          So this time you get both.

           

          New English for computers!

          When someone is using a map program, or showing a picture, you can use these phrases:

          "Can you zoom in?" = This means to make the picture bigger, to see more details.

          "Can you zoom out?" = This means to make the picture smaller, so you can see what is around it.

           

          What's happening in my life?

          Today I had a last lesson with one of my students who is moving to Shiga.

          It was a little sad because I really enjoyed chatting with her.

          She said in a few years she expects to live near here again so I hope she comes by again.

           

          Also, one of my (Japanese) friends is coming to my house tomorrow to hang out.

          We are going to play old video games together.

          We finished all of the Mario games from the Mario on the ファミコン up to the Mario for the Wii.

          Tomorrow I think we will start the one for the WiiU.

          We also played a game called Kaizo Mario, it was really hard and super fun.

           

          See you next time!

          James

           

          P.S. Kazusa and I made another YouTube video this evening, check it out!

            Hi everyone! 

             

            This is my first time ever in my whole life to write a blog post. O_O

            Shocking, right?

             

            Okay, well, today I will start a series about computers.

            Why computers? Because I am a PC geek!

            I want to teach you things that are not in textbooks, and many of my students don't know how to say.

            So, the first post will be about problems.

             

            It is buggy! = This means something strange is happening, unusual, but still working a little.

            This program has a bug! = This means every time you use it the same problem happens.

            It crashed! = This means the computer turned off, or there is a blue screen, it died!

            It is laggy! = This means that all inputs are slow, like a delay for each action.

             

            That's all for today!

            I will continue the series soon!

            See you next time,

            James
