I’ve heard conflicting things about turning your PC on and off vs just leaving it on 24/7.

Looking from a purely longevity perspective. I saved for a long time for my build and want it to last as long as possible.

If it matters I can drop specs for you all.

Living in a home with all carpet. Leaving it on is a bad idea. It just collects more dust then usual.

On 24/7. From a longevity perspective, doesn't seem to matter. If anything, turning things on and off in general is harder on them than just leaving them on. Although it probably doesn't matter much anymore. I will say, it seems that every time I've had something go out, it never just fails when it's on. It's always when it's been turned off and it's being turned back on that it doesn't work anymore.

I only shut mine down when i go to sleep, work, or I'm going to be out of the house for a few hours or more.
