My four-year-old laptop started slowing down about 6 months ago, to the point where I couldn't play any games without a severe drop after several seconds. It felt hot, and sure enough the temperatures skyrocketed to high 90s from 70s (idle) after opening any games. I didn't do anything for 6 months and just focused on studies.
Now that it's summer, I did some more digging. Cleaning out my fans didn't help, so I went deeper and replaced the thermal paste. Nothing is any better.
Do I need a new heatsink, or have my cpu/gpu been fucked from constant overheating?

Can someone please tell me why people pay tons of money for routers? I browse a deals forum and I see people creaming their pants over like $100 ASUS routers. This one in particular is like $75 I believe.
At work I am using some Dlink router, that gosh, it must be over 6 years old. It has wireless and 1 antenna.
At home I am using just some generic one my ISP provided. Has wireless, no antenna.
The only thing hooked up to my wireless are my phone and laptop.
Why do people pay tons of money, sometimes hundreds for a router?
My wifi signal is not bad, I get it all around the house or at work. It never cuts off?
My main PC is plugged in by Ethernet, no connection problems ever?
What am I getting by buying a top router?
Back in the day if I needed more ports to plug in more computers I just daisy-chained routers. Doesn't look like that has changed because most routers still only have 4 ports.
None of my PC's have wireless cards. Why would I use wireless when it's less secure and slower than Ethernet.

Be honest with me for a moment, why do you really hate Macs? Notice the word "hate", I'm not talking to those of you who simply don't care for them, but those of you who act like a gang of Macs shot you in the leg, ran over your father, and raped your mother. Do you actually have legitimate reasons or is it because it's the cool thing to do? Don't worry, no one knows who you are here, tripfags, you can take off your trips. You may get called a faggot for your opinions but in an hour you can go back to siding with the popular opinion to look cool (why you'd want to look cool on an anonymous image board is beyond me but hey, that's your business).
