Oh ok, well at least the midgets and balloons mean you won't have to blatatly ignore the laws of physics. Here I was thinking you were making stuff up.

Maybe at least to the OT section, I'm not sure what use this has in the Intel section at this point... If it talks like a troll, games on 4 screens in 3D on SLI 460's like a troll and understands science like a troll, well, what are we to think?

Inaccurate readings are useful how....? Nifty for their inaccuracy or the shiny widget sitting on your desktop that allows you to destroy your hardware with no inconvenient need for technical knowledge. Now that's progress!

Someone requested to see the exterior of the case.

I know don't say it... the cable management is even worse outside of the case!!!! lol soo many usb devices and cables and yes im using an a/c filter as my case filter, don't hate lol.

This. @OP, if the midgets and balloons don't work out, feel free to shoot me a PM or come over to the water cooling section and we'll get you swimming in no time. Until then, enjoy the 460's and multitude of screens, I'm outta here

I don't call having redundant software to help PROTECT your pc a waste..

Like core temp for example. if the system temps get out of wack it will shut my system down before it gets out of hand.

Now are you trying to say... its best not to monitor at all then to have monitored in accurately, even if it could possible save your pc while your not paying attention to your system?

I dont know about you, but i prefer not to let my cpu get to 100c to where it has to shut itself down or burn itself out.

Software Temp reading's are actually accurate. as their base for reading is a on die sensor.

thats the great thing about this monitoring software... it does what coretemp cant.. displays all the temps you can pull up in the bios not just the cpi .. its f'n sweet.

Monitoring is great, but changing voltages/clocks via inaccurate software isn't. I use speedfan and it has some variance from the true temp, but it's consistent. I'd never use NVControl Panel to adjust anything other than fan speed though Now really, I'm gone. Enjoy the turtles!
