    Are you sick of poor quality 128k mp3's that sound inferior to regular CD's you buy in the store? Do you long for the exact sound of a CD with absolutly no quality loss, and at practically half the size of a normal CD? CD's get scratched all the time, and FLAC is great for archiving all those good copies of your classic rock, and backing them up to save forever. FLAC unlike mp3, or ogg vorbis is what is called a lossless format. This means that no quality whatsoever is lost from the origianl disk. Lossy formats such as ogg vorbis, wmv, and moreover mp3 are usually flat sounding, and full of hissing and dullness because they discard and literally throw out important information that controls how good the CD will sound. Using FLAC will ensure the crystal-clear clarity that you can expect from a freshly opened CD. Instead of flimsy CD cases that snap and CD's that scratch easily, and are inevitably summoned to a poor scratched up death; FLAC files can be stored in a tough metal box known as your Hard Disk. FLAC putting life back into digital audio. If you own legit copies of CD's and seek for them pre-FLAC'd for all your digital listening needs please shoot me a PM for more information.

    Update on the temps.

    With the pc just running, i get temps around 28-32 degrees

    With something like unreal 2003 running it rises to around 41-44.

    This is a big drop fom what i was getting. Nearer 58+

    Now i just need some extractors or holes drilling in the case to push all the hot air out.

    Thanks all.:cheers:

    This XP2600+ @ 2.26GHz of mine with a room temp of 20C atm has a case/system temp of 25C and CPU temp of 37C under 100% load (SETI never stops here) so the 7+ is doin' it's job well.

    @all

    Sorry forgot to state, My temp's are also achieved when the Volcano is set to medium. The pc has now been running solidly for two days. At some points it been left to download and others i've had a blast or two at forgotten battles. It seems to stay around the high 30's temps wise

    Its not as noisy as i was expecting either. Thanks for telling me to get the Volcano 7+

    Any other recommedations for cooling ?

    @toolbox yes i used the paste that came with the Volcano 7 :am i better of using something else?

    ps. has anbody used hdd coolers?
