    It always happens but it's not just the youngin's that do it either as I have a pc back for the 5th time from a 56yr old who just has to fiddle with things he knows nothin' about. :(

    I've got good temps for my XP
    Its an Athlon XP 1600+ (1.4GHz) Oc'd to 1.6Ghz @ 1.85v with a Modded Dragon Orb 3 running at temps around 27-32c

    Very happy with it indeed.

    btw, got a pipe hooked up the the orb, blowing 100CFM from outside the case all focussed onto the heatsink. (pulled off the 7k fan - too noisy)
