There is a nice tweak for via chipset users ( AMD and Intel CPUs) The good news is that it really works. The better news is that it is fairly easy to do. The BEST news is that it is FREE. We are SERIOUSLY talking 10-15 c benefit. Check it out and give it a try. I am fairly sure you will be pleased with the results. It is called the "WPCREDIT Cooling Solution" and all of the instructions and download links to items necessary to enable this Tweak are found here: http://www.viahardware.com/haltcooling.shtm This works Wonderfully in WinXP, by the way. Remember to say nice things about me whenever you look lovingly at those nice LOW temps My way to pay all of you back for the help you have given me these past few months.
