    installed an ultra cpu cooler for my amd, its the 80mm one, to replace the weak cooler that comes with the amd processor.

    also a cantec tornado exhaust fan. let me tell u, when they call it a tornado they are not kidding, this thing flows 80cfm, the downside is that it is LOUD.

    are there any good programs to keep an eye on cpu/mobo temp???

    it is, i'll try it out for a few days, if i cant get used to it, i;ll ditch it.

    it flows though, i currently have 2 crappy fans as intake and the tornado as exhaust, i'll try swapping the two crappy ones for another tornado to see what type of gains as far as cooling goes.

    You can just get a potentimeter (variable resistor) from a electronic store for pretty cheap that would do the job nicely.

    As for the temps they are ok. Im getting a little bit lower on my overclocked barton 2600+.
