    I wonder where I could get a utility that records record uptime :)

    I'm pretty sure the most I ran it straight on for; is about 2 weeks or so.

    I have a question to all; how healthy is leaving it on for long periods of time?

    I have 9 case fans and a total of 11 in all I believe. Volcano 9 running at max speed :D

    no affect whatsoever. look at servers across the world (including this one); they stay online for months straight without being rebooted. one of my servers has been online for 120 straight days without a reboot (and that's nothing).

    Nick, it would work fine. Probably less strain if anything.

    U2Penn, various programs provide this such as Norton Utilities (System Doctor), CoolMon, Samurize, among many others. To use Microsoft's built in tool, simply run CMD and type 'systeminfo.exe'
