Over that past few days i have noticed that my pc has been kicking the fans on high speed, when normally it doesn't...are there any software tools or by physically checking out that may be causing this?

have a look inside your case and check to see that there is no build up of dust on the fans/heatsinks

this would cause the fans to need to do more work.

also what temp is your board/cpu running at (and what cpu?)

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
