    Best way to cool an Athlon XP Barton?

    Hey, I'm running a Barton 2500+ and was having probs with temps/noise prior with a Volcano 9 attached....put on A1889-01 Silent Boost from Thermaltake and my temps are some 15 degrees cooler and I hear nothing from the case anymore, nothing whatsoever.....I love it, and it costs all of 30 bucks CAD

    computer automatically shutting down

    Your friend has the sasser.a worm which was released this morning at 3 am. It exploits like blaster/welchia but instead of rpc service it crashes lsass.exe or laserve.exe Check www.symantec.com for help on it. I've submitted news on this and it should be up on main later.

    Hmm, I've actually noticed my temps steadily increasing as well. May just be that the ambient temp has been 10-12 degrees higher than normal tho. Not sure, first time using Arctic Silver Ceramique.
