    well for how quiet it is its pretty cool, keeps it in the 40 to 50c range when its (keeping in mind its summer were I live and im a poor college student and can't afford AC) but if I take the cover off its drops to low 40's to high 30's other then that it works good Ive read all the reviews I could find and its faster then the fullsized nforce 2 boards esp. the asus one (the one everyone thinks is so great) during the winter or if I replace the 80mm stock fan that came with it I was see massive drops in temps (I live in a valley it gets real hot here and then real cold) so far tho im really impressed with it.

    AMD's are good to about 70° to 80°, tho' the lower the better.
    Got myself a globalwin silent dual-fan for about $30 US from http://www.globalwin.com.tw and haven't looked back, slapped on a bit of Arctic silver and i'm down to 32° to 36° (gaming)

    nice. i can't imagine having an oc'd 3200+ and 5900ultra in one of those... getting almost 20k 3dmarks out of something the size of a shoebox. with all the features of an atx setup, too. mind-boggling.

    my stupid palomino runs up to 60c (it's been over 105f lately, and a/c is used very sparingly), so don't feel self conscious about your temps around me. if my proc fried, i would not be heartbroken. ;) maybe a good temp-controlled 80mm fan would be a nice upgrade for you.

    I would be heartbroken!!! I love my cpu its hits 2.4ghz on air cooling.... when its not 100+ outside I got a good overclocker runs fast and cool (when weather permits) and I don't have to up the voltage on it I got really lucky when I bought it and u don't get good chips like that often :)
