    (actual pictures taken this morning, 10 mins with a hover and the result was a massive drop in CPU temps of nearly 20c!!!.

    Which is hardly suprising seeing that the fins on the fan and heatsink where almost totaly blocked.

    Result:

    Temps in the mid 40's with a OK(ish) overclock for a 2800+ on A Via chipset with crap RAM.

    Moral of this story: check you temps oftern, clean your case oftern and don't get a Areo Master as there a bitch to clean.

    Mine runs at 35 C, it hits 45 C or so the hottest when I'm gaming. I don't have the current generation Pentium 4 though, and those run regularly at 45 C or higher. I'm just using the stock heatsink and fan.
