3)A suggested Mobo replacement?

The XP cpu was known to run warm. As long as you have air cooling it will still run warm, You may want to look into getting a big Typhoon. It would pull the temps down, but don't look for a big drop. With added volts comes more heat

OH...thats one thing I forgot.....
ATX Demon case, also add another 80mm fan on teh side
I seem to be getting quite a bit of air-flow/exhaust....but I think the Volcano's the ticket...the lights don't create any heat....but I'm thinking of removing them anyway!
If ya noticed the "U" on the side case....YEA I'M A GAMER.....Unreal Tournament
These pics were taken as the project progressed....I'll see if I can get some final ones for ya's



Thanks for the input mechh69!!!
