Great news. What CPU do you have anyway?

It's actually 10 times, lol.

I wish I could afford a Zalman, even if I could though, it probably wouldn't fit in the system I need it in.

That's funny how David has 10 posts in a row. It's ironic proof that something needs to be done about the database/server.

As for the Zalman, I'd like to see temperature under load.

I was looking to buy a heatsink a few months backs and I wanted a Zalman but couldn't afford it. I eventually bought this for about 15 bucks on eBay and it works amazingly.

Jesusfrk611, this may sound weird, but if you want to cool your system down, take off a side wall, put a fan there and just blow air into the case. It will cool EVERYTHING in there down.
