    A few questions

    I just got a new HSF, the vantec with a 60mm Delta, I am wondering how i can control the speed of the fan because it is a tad loud sometimes. What is the best way to monitor my cpu temp? I was using sandra but I found the temps to be very low in comparison to the temps in Bios. I finally got my 3dmark scores up from 2347 to 6806, does that seem low yet? Finally, what is the max temp I should let my chip run at? after about 4 hours of UT it hits 105, with my super orb it would hit that after 15 minutes. Thanks.

    Well, I don't know about controlling the speed of your fan, but for monitoring your temp, most people like motherboard monitor. Sandra is known to be off on the temp readings. That 3dmark sounds good compared to the others I have seen with that card. And 105 for a temp sounds pretty dang good to me. I wouldn't want to let the chip get more than 120 or 125.

    About the 3DMark score: You can go higher! I have a Duron@1000Mhz (10x100), and your processor should still be faster than mine. I can get ~7300 in 3DMark2k, so you should be able to get at least that amount.
