    Acually, ive learned that head spreaders can be taken off, then reapplyed, I did it on my old AMD K6 wihtout a problem

    Head spreaders huh?? OooooOOOO!!:D

    you guys talk about 20 degrees comfortable. I think.. 20 degrees and water freezes at 32.. brrr.. but then it's C and not F. I like 74 F for most of the winter.

    Does it ever snow in Australia? How cold does it really get??

    I've seen one morning in Western Nebraska about 14 years ago that I woke up and the temperature was -50 degrees F. The record low was only 9 miles away in Oshkosh at 49.77 degrees BELOW ZERO! Was kind of cold out that morning.. Ya didn't drive around much as the seat felt like a board. Foam don't give at that temp and oil don't pump well either.

    I can only imagine pumping in air at that temp to the inside of the computer case!

    Yes it does snow along the Great Dividing Range (that's the name of the range runnin' north/south along the whole eastern seaboard and I live in the middle of it) and part of that to the south of me is called Snowy Mountains. Rarely will we see 0F though (-18C :eek:, water freezes at 0C, boils at 100C, at sealevel anyway) but 20C is around 70F. The kids are hoping to see some snow flakes here over the next few months (if they're lucky).

    Out here in Michigan, where we moved to, the averate snow fall is around 140 inches. Not too cold because of the Lake Michigan affect on the snow.

    I saw pictures of the great 1949 Blizzard that happened in Nebraska, Wyoming, South Dakota, Colorado and some parts of Kansas.

    There are pictures of 2 story houses and people using the second story windows to exit their houses. Snow came halfway up the side of the barn roof. One picture I saw were 3 guys staning on the level snow and the telephone poles (and wires) were there at their feet. Somewhere aroun 19 feet of snow in one storm. Quite a lot really.

    Can you imagine trying to do internet back then?? Birds sitting on the wire caused problems with voice. Ice on them could degrade the connection. No fiber optics, no buried cable, no satellite.. just plain wires strung on poles.
