You don't have to reformat. Just defrag. My brother didn't defrag for six months and I did it for him when I was fixing his computer. I hate doing that. He had four trojan horses and a keylogger. His machine was so messed up. But I was able to salvage Windows without reformating.

That's steep for a good HSF. I'm using stock cooling and it stays below 37C (105F about)/.

I like how COD came up with the tags for each soldier stating their rank, name and type. Then EA had to bite off of that with MOH: PA.
