Seems unusual to me that the mobo temp is higher than the CPU (mine is always lower), but all of those temps are within normal ranges.

Well I finally got the card installed in my P180, and the difference is pretty dramatic. I'm seeing a 2-3C drop in CPU temperature just on the replacement of the card alone (from the gigabyte GeForce 6600GT to the XFX GeForce 7600GS, both fanless), down from 45C. System occasionally ran into the 50-...

GeForce 7600 GS

http://www.gpureview.com/GeForce-7600-GS-PCI-E-card-387.html Wondering if this might someday get an article from SPCR...

Since Scythe made the ginormous Ninja heatsink I am currently using, I decided to check it out. Sorry for the lack of formatting, but this is a copy paste of the claims of the new produc...

Error: CPU Fan missing

I recently finished building one a P180 silent PC (phantom 350w, 6600GT, etc), thanks to the research and help I found on this site. Everything is fantastic, except for one slight annoyance, related to the use of the SCNJ-1000 (scythe ninja). Since I built the computer to only use the fans in the P1...
