comment Overheating issue
BIOS temperature readouts will show processor and chipset temperatures separately. Also, modern systems don't even have a separate northbridge chip.

comment How to install windows on another PC's HDD using my PC?
Your colleagues most likely had an image prepared in advance. The copy+sysprep process might well take only a few minutes, but the advance preparation took a lot longer.

comment Finding the IP address of a walled in router
While it is possible to make a bridge with no IP address, this is not done for devices which have network-accessible management screens. And disconnecting the WAN port has no effect on whether the LAN interface has an IP address.

comment Can a website see/know my MAC address even if I use a VPN?
@Tetsujin: That's not a website, though, it's a game running directly on your computer. Web servers can't see your MAC address, but software installed and running on your computer definitely can.

comment Is it safe to format this partition?
Apply some critical thinking skills, instead of wishful thinking skills. How big is your hard drive? How much data is stored on the computer now? Is it even remotely possible for there to be 1TB of unused space sitting around just waiting to be properly formatted?

comment How do I create a folder name that starts with a dot in Windows 7?
Renaming inside windows explorer can still result in automatic changes to case, etc. Do you know if this is special handling for mkdir or whether other CMD.exe built-in commands work also?

comment How to correlate CPU benchmarks to overall computer performance?
Instead of CPU benchmarks, look for PC benchmarks, that try hard to do their measurements on real-world types of tasks. If you compare system-wide benchmark results on two computers that differ only in the processor, you find the contribution of CPU to those tasks.
