I've never been one to use cooling utilities much but I just tried a very elegant one I downloaded from MajorGeeks.com. Its called VCool and it works superbly.....Download is only 28K and once installed I enabled the idle loop...dropped the idle temps by 7C....Doesn't seem to have any impact on perormance as my Sandra scores stayed the same...

Anyway MajorGeeks has some really good utils..

Yeah...shocked the sh&t outa me too.......even though under stress the chip heats up to its normal temp....most of the time it stays around 1-2C above the mobo temp....(I know my typing is not too challenging for the chip)..at the moment room temp 27, mobo temp 28 and cpu temp 30.

happy Jan

LOL, you may have the largest quicklaunch toolbar I've ever set eyes on, MySTiCuSS!

Hmm.. gonna give that prog a try. At the time of this posting I'm using my Backup system (thanks to a pretty much DOA EPoX 8KHA+ mobo). I'm convinced the 600EB has a relatively POS cooling fan, so anything I can do to help out wouldn't be bad.

No dude, thats insanely inefficient.... That rivals using a one button MAC mouse. If you get 4 windows open you can't read what they are from the toolbar.....

I use a double thickness toolbar with my top 12 selections for quicklaunch in a nice little 2 X 4 rectangle. Any other shortcuts I have I keep handy in the start menu.

Just tried to get that utility but they don't list the Via k7t266 chipset as one that it will work with..

I don't understand why I can't get my load temp below 47, I am using the Dargon Orb 3 7000 RPM copper base Fan plus another rear mounted exhaust case fan... Although 47 isn't in the danger zone I would sure like to get down around 42 on load, any suggestions??

You should try adding an intake case fan which most cases have a position for at the lower front of the case. :smokin:
