    I'm having a hard time searching for this-- most results return software solutions from within an OS (or say to go into the BIOS). Is it possible to read things like CPU temp, fan speed, voltage, clock speed, etc. directly from the motherboard, not through an OS? For example, is there a port...

    Question SSD How long without power / finite number of write cycles?

    I build 2 PCs quite some time ago and have been using an SSD for years. I never knew that drives will eventually loose their information if they go too long without power. Even USB drives?
