My old computer is always on and mainly used to downloading, browsing the Web, shopping and commenting on the SMZDM.

I am not sensitive to the noise while sleeping. At least I have never heard the noise after replacing the fan. I am even satisfied of the “new” computer.I hope theses hardware can last longer.That’s all. Thank you.
