ok, i know, i am an idiot. But anyway, why do you need a CPU to be at a lower temperature if you are not overclocking. Does a cooler temp somehow increase the speed of the electrons? These oil- and water-cooled systems are awsome (xriz...) but if you are not going to overclock, arn't you just wasting money.

Right now my Athlon 500 is at 75 degrees F. if i cool it more, will i get more performance?

Thanks for helping a newbie,
