Well I got my new zalman FC-ZV9 (please no fatal1ty comments) but now I have a problem. My sound card kills the performance. With the sound out I get 40C idle and 65C load, but with the sound card in it goes up to 48C idle and 74C load (not to mention the fan gets a lot louder). Anyone got any great ideas?<br />

Well after seeing the nice change in temps without the sound card I broke down and bought one of these. I know it's a lot of money but I gotta have it <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin"><br><br><a href="http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?campid=5337413396&toolid=10001&mpre=http%3A%2F%2Fcgi.ebay.com%2Fws%2FeBayISAPI.dll%3FViewItem%26item%3D190042231850" target="_blank">http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=190042231850</a>

Looks like a fine solution. Well worth the cash if it works and drops the temps back where you want them. Good job!
