You certainly shouldn't be running it was root.

comment New ram prevents PC from booting up
@Ramhound, sure it does; touching the chassis ensures that there is no voltage between you and it. Unless you are rubbing the chips on the ground, then it doesn't matter if there is any potential between the chassis and ground.

comment How can my program make IPv6 connections?
Well obviously you are either mistaken about it making IP6 connections outside your local network, or the router does support it.

comment CPU power states and temperature spikes
If you mean on average, then yes since there is always some activity waking up the cpu, but during the time when it is actually idle, if it is functioning properly, it is totally powered off and thus generating no heat. While it isn't going to get down to 25C, it should be well below 80. Come to think of it, my cpu ( sandybridge quad core 3.4 Ghz ( 4.3 turbo ) 2500K unlocked and slightly overclocked ) does idle at around 30-32 C, which is getting pretty close to 25.

comment CPU power states and temperature spikes
95 may be normal under full load with performance boost, but certainly not when idle. Either you aren't really idle or your idle is broken and not making use of the processor's C states.

If the cpu is idle though, it's performance state should not matter; it is powered down and not generating any heat.

comment How does fabrication process and compiler quality affect CPU performance
Fabrication means manufacturing the cpu ( silicon ), not software.

comment Difference between cache memory and register?
As the accepted answer from 4 years ago says: cache just sits between the cpu and main ram, which is where instructions and data are stored.

comment How to convert RJ11 to RCA
@BGM, that looks like what you need. A telephone line is only two wires. An RJ11 contains two lines: one on the inner pair of pins, and line two is the outer pair of pins. As for low power, "low" is relative. RCA is something like 3v and telephone voice is like 12v, and that 48v ringing voltage is what would really kill it.

comment How to convert RJ11 to RCA
@BGM, the direction does not matter; the VoiP telephone adapter outputs high power because it expects to be connected to a telephone, not stereo equipment. Only RCA connections are single direction; telephone lines are bidirectional.
