@Liz... Right, as Carfanatic pointed out you can adjust your fan settings in your BIOS. Also make certain you are not plugged into the CPU port with your Main unit, as the temps are variable temps and will slow your pump. If your Push/Pull setup has long enough leads you can chain them together.
As far as snail mail from Performance for TIM. I live completely on the other side of the US from them. I had my last order from them in 2 days.
I order last Tuesday...
2n1 ATX tool
1 ft of 1 inch Heatshrink
1 ft of .5 inch Heatshrink
Checked the tracking number on my USPS shipment on Thursday night.
It was in my P.O. Box by 12pm that day. I happily walked over and opened my letter size P.O. Box expecting to have to go in the next day. It was in my box, I ran home happy as a Loon and started back in on my sleeving.
I don't know where you're at but if it's 2 days for me I can't imagine that it would be much more for you.
If you order a big package from them it takes about 10 days to go cross the US. That's what it took for my big fan order.
