    CoreTemp CPU usage

    Task manager and speedfan both show the CPU use between 10-18%. I just noticed that it is not actually coretemp itself that is using the cycles, it's explorer.exe when coretemp is loaded. ??? Weird. I quit coretemp and explorer goes to 00.

    Why isnt my ISP letting me route my cable connection...

    I have a WRT54G, and it does have an option for cloning the MAC or manually entering it. There is a MAC address clone link on the main setup page. I had the same problem as you.

    Vantec ICEBERQ for chipset cooling

    Not sure about the "Iceberg 4" ones, but this one works well on my nf7. It just doesn't have the bling factor.

    Just for fun, what was your first PC?

    Sinclair ZX-81. It was quite the machine. 1k of RAM combined with a raging 3.5 mhz processor. Eventually upgraded to a Commodore VIC-20. i'm old... :(

    Which HSF?

    You need a 3 1/8 hole saw. And a good drill;) Be warned though, I've made a blowhole with a holesaw, and it can be a pain in the arse. I tried the dremel, and got impatient. If your case material is not too thick, the dremel may be the way to go.

    Which HSF?

    If you are talking about the Silentboost, sorry, it does have copper fins and works very well. The only aluminum part is the fan bracket. The construction is as good as my sp-97.

    Broken cut-off wheels and aluminum in my eyes

    Could be getting a venturi effect through the rad which would cool the air slightly below ambient.

    Is there any utility to monitor the video card fan speed?

    Only if the fan has a three wire connector. If so, you can connect it to a motherboard fan header and read the RPMs with any monitoring program, i.e. MBM. I don't know if any stock fans have this type of connector.

    Tell us why your Linux distro is the best

    You have to reboot. Don't worry, knoppix runs completely in your ram so as to not screw anything up.

    Startup lag in XP

    I've had a similar problem with DSL before. Oddly, I was able to solve it by forcing the DNS address in windows. I know it sounds wierd, but give it a shot. Come to think of it, I was using SBC at the time as well. They have gremlins in their DHCP servers...:confused:

    Pin Modding my 2400 Mobile.

    I did this mod using the "wire in the socket" method. Pretty simple and very effective in my case. I went from 205 FSB to 235 FSB Just by doing this. I couldn't tell you why it works, but it does (for most people, YMMV). Here is a link . That board has several good posts on the pin mod if...

    Best RAM for an oc'd Athlon XP M w/200mhz fsb

    You are correct that pc3200 would be the most appropriate for a 200Mhz FSB system. Higher speed Ram would work as well. You should only need to increase your RAM voltages if you are pushing the Ram beyond spec. As far as brands go, I only personally have used Corsair and Mushkin. They are...

    Thermalright SP-94 good for silent cooling?

    I use the SP-97 (comparable to the 94) with a Thermaltake 80mm smart fan. I use the fan bus to keep it around 3000 rpm when not gaming. At that speed it is practically silent and cools very well.
