Gaming PC Repair UK

Today we had a Vibox PC in for repair where the power supply had failed.

There was a bang and some smoke on the pretest as a result of the failed components on the power supply.

Having experienced this surcharge we decided it was best to quote the customer for a new power supply rather than trying to fault find and repair the existing one.

Vibox Gamers PC Repair

Anyone that has changed a power supply on a PC will know how long this takes. Especially when the previous build has poor cable management.

It took our technician from start to finish just over 2 hours including testing to get this sorted. It now starts perfectly with no smoke, bangs or surcharges.

Our service includes cleaning all components and applying new thermal paste. If you have a PC that requires repair, whether it is used for gaming or general use. Give us a call on 01494 534 008 or complete our quotes form.

If you are a keen PC Gamer it is important that your PC is cleaned at least once per year - some may even recommend much shorter intervals depending on the gamers usage and playing environment.

Thermal Paste Application on Graphics Card

PC's that are used for gaming generally are used more than the average PC and can build up substantial amounts of dust and dirt more quickly. This can lead to performance issues as the dust is often built up within the fan and heat sink which can cause the CPU and other vital components not to be kept as cool as they should be for optimal performance.

Moreover the thermal paste that is applied to keep the CPU cool can often become brittle in texture rather than smooth and soft. This may mean that the CPU is overheating which can result in system failures.

How often thermal paste should be reapplied is hard to confirm as it will depend on the quality of the thermal paste used initially by the manufacture or the last place that serviced the machine however if you are system cleaning every 6 - 12 months then this should be changed during this service.
