No, not becoming a temp-monkey, just the fan on my gpu has
done it's life work it seems... it sounds trRRRRRrrrrrrRRRRRrrrRRRrrRR
if I don't take the fanspeed below 10 percent.... and that's why
I monitor the temp on my panel.

I am not an idiot a'la "zomfgroflcopter9000, ITS OVER 60 DEGREEEESSSS!!!!111"
but simply need to know if it get's over 100 degrees ;-)

I can already hear the "a new gfx card is what? 20 bucks..."
I'm well aware, but u are prolly not aware of my laziness...
...I run my system on a 80gb IDE disk since I really like my
install (of many many years now) and don't feel like installing
a new system.

whats that? long description containing no valuable info whatsoever?
Yup, that's exactly what it is.

Can't you just clone your drive on to a new hd. I have done this using the tools on hirens cd.(torrent)
You can use a third party gpu cooler or/and pci exhaust above graphics card. I usually dremel out
the grills in the box and add a fan grill as the holes are to small to let out hot air. This will create better
air flow, took my temps down 20 c :)
Yeah I know hirens... used that a lot
at a place I used to work :)

Yeah I know I could change the fan and
do a lot of other cool jiggerypokery,
it's just, I don't wanna spend any more
money on this computer, it will run it's
course and then it's in with new stuff :)

Thx for the suggestion tho, I'm not
sure if you can just simply clone over
the install into a new disk. You are
sure you have copied ('cloned') a
working install into another disk that
is not exactly the same size or
anything? well, it's worth a try at
least when I get around to doing some
updates :)

I used acronis disk director, but it was a while back ext3 days. It asks how you want to redistribute extra space. I cloned 60gb to 500gb.
and you had no problems with it?

give it a serious try then!
