Three of what I would consider to be essential pieces of software. Irrespective of what is the intended purpose of a new Rig, these are vital in the post build process.

CPU-Z

CPU Monitor and Component Monitor

Speed Fan

Fan and Thermal Footprint Monitor

Core Temp

CPU Temps Monitor

Sandra 2012

Benchmarking Software Suite

Haven't tried Core Temp yet. Might have to play around with that one a bit. I've used one called Hot CPU for some time, but they want to charge for the newer versions.

Just a thought, but we might give some thought to an area in the Wiki for information and links to some of the various tools and other goodies that we use from time to time. Especially the free ones. It would be handy to have a central location for that kind of resource.

I actually started breaking down the main page into categories. It's a little different than the forum, but on the left side of each page is a Help link that leads to a Help: Contents page. You can get help there for starting pages, formatting, uploading pictures, etc. And if you run into trouble, just leave me a message here.

If you want to play with it a bit, just start a "sandbox" page and jump in. To start the page, go into edit mode and type [[Sandbox]] somewhere on the page. Then save the page and click on the new Sanbox link. It'll take you to the new page in edit mode.

Did I confuse you yet?

I went ahead and created the page. Here's a link, and when you get comfortable with it, jump right in.

Wiki Sandbox

Oh, and remember, you need to sign in to the Wiki still, or even create an account.

You can insert those tags anywhere. Mmm OK, would have thought that was top of the page stuff.

Double brackets inserts an internal url, single brackets inserts an external url.

Code: [Select]
[[CPUs]] - Creates a link to the CPUs page.

[http://somesite.com] - Creates a link to a web source, dont forget the http://

You might open two windows, one to the Sandbox, and one to the help page and just play with it a bit. Once you're signed in, you can open the edit feature on any page to see how the code for that page is written, or if you're curious without signing in, there's a View Source tab at the top.

Well I have mucked about with some CSS and several templates so I will have a look. Having word blindness knocks my confidence when delving into code. Had the same problem when I modded a few game Lua scripts and such like. I was ok with adding units to exsisting game unit lists and mission lists, but if I tried to write my mission scripts or Lua files, I kinda needed a new pair of eyes if see what I mean.

There's a preview feature, so you can take a look at what you're doing at just about any point. The Wiki's probably easier to use than the forum, and if you mess something up, we can undo it. Relax.
