If your computer doesn't have a fan, it's not a computer. It's a phone. Posted on May 21, 2023 by Anonymous If your computer doesn't have a fan, it's not a computer. It's a phone.
In your own words, provide a precise definition of "computer".
Is a commodore 64 a computer?
No, it's a programmable gaming console.
I love my cumputer
Nintendo GameCube is a computer
Laptops are computers and don't need a fan.
Right. They need to throttle whenever they perform any computationally expensive task.
>inb4 a laptop doesn't need to do anything intensive
then it's a phone with a keyboard
If your phone can't make calls, it's not a phone, it's a mobile device
what if I watercool my desktop, but instead of a radiator with fans, I just have a giant tub of water that I dump some ice in once every few days?
that means you're retarded
it also means I have a fanless computer that isn't a phone though
there are fanless PSUs now; there weren't in the 386/486 era. IIRC the first ones appeared in the mid-2000s. Even with the poor efficiency numbers of the time you could have made one back then, at least a low-powered one, but there wasn't really a market.
Most retarded post on LULZ in a while. Of course you wouldn't know that early X86 CPUs like 386 were cooled passively. Active cooling was introduced with 486.
They had a fan in the PSU.
My phone has a fan. Just one. My only fan.
>If your computer doesn't emit a fan noise or a coil whine, it's not a GAMING computer.
I always thought it was the cellular radio, being able to make phone calls, that made a phone a phone. Silly me.
modern phones that use voip don't have a radio for calls
I love my computer
I mean, it's got CMake. Must be a computer.
