then you plug the fans into this and it also doubles up as a fan controller all ya need to do is connect it to a 4 pin molex and to control the fan speeds connect it to a usb port
thanks for the link, I might have to check that out...

dont know how good they work but it seems like a good idea , all you need is one spare 4 pin molex and a spare usb port , also dont know how much it costs and where to get it from

surprisingly (or at least I thought so), it was around $30 on TigerDirect, a pretty good deal if you ask me...

this is the "fan" that I have screwed onto my heatsink right now, I took one of the fans off and it seems to be holding it's own at the moment...

that looks kind of liek the heat thingy in my dell desktop

maybe try getting one of those, the green thingy goes over the heatsink on the processor and to a 120mm case fan

yes, that was yesterday after I had just reseated the heatsink with the tiny fan, maybe the heatsink compound had to settle/spread to become more effective...? because after the first hour or so with it running 65+, it has been steadily around 51 (idle) and 56 (under load, which believe me isn't much, I'm not a gamer), with a decent heatsink and fan I think I could probably keep it at or under 40...

I have an Intel pentium4 willamette C1 (1.5 ghz), also, the mobo temp has been around 35 degrees for about the same amount of time, when I do get the heatsink and fan I'm gonna look into OCing this puppy (though I probably won't do it), because I read somewhere that it OCed to about 2.4 ghz, though I can't recall if it was OCed from 1.5 or 1.8 ghz in the article...

That is A warmer running system for not being overclocked.

But it is not too high.

I usually check in the setup when I boot and then run pcwizard once it's up and running...

I'm just glad that the fan connections were the only thing that I fried, I've found ways around that...
