Stuff like this is why I plan on getting Vista for the next computer I build, hopefully during the summer or at the very latest summer of 2008.

Have you installed the chipset drivers and etc. i've heard that its much faster with the correct drivers. Im not too sure about the cpu usage though.

I installed everything correctly, but it dosnt matter now. I put XP back on. So much better for now, atleast until XP gets kick outta the picture.

Come to think of it, being Vista...what were you checking temps with? You might have been getting false readings

Matt

EDIT: lmao, this is like a puzzle everytime I open this thread I see something new in the screenshot...and I quote "I love 2 fart"

Even if the readings were wrong, I could feel the heat coming off my case. And when I start my computer (b4 windows starts to load) it shows my temp.

What's the minimum amount of RAM Vista can support? Isn't it like 4gigs or something?

I don't get you? Minimum? I'm sure you could run it with 512, but 1gb is the normal.

Well, the maximum is like 64gb or something...it's a daft amount that we won't get to before the next Windows release

Matt

EDIT: OK, Just looked it up...it seems the maximum varies from version to version...
In order, Home Basic, Home Premium, Business, Enterprise and Ultimate
Maximum RAM (64-bit version) 8 GB 16 GB 128+ GB 128+ GB 128+ GB

You're Right, the 32-bit versions all have a limit of 4gb...But if 64 bit is available you should use it..
Sorry we're going a bit off topic here lol
