I run dual 1.4Ghz PIII Tualatins w/1024mb 1066mhz RD-Ram, 128mb ATI Radeon 8500 All-In-Wonder, and a WD 120GB 8mb Cache HD. (Plus 3 cd-rw drives, 1 dvd drive, backup hard drive, zip drive, floppy drive, network card, sound card, etc...). With the 28 fans (only 14 are actually case fans, the other 14 are inside the case cooling particular things, i.e. CPU'*, video card, etc...) I have on my computer my CPUs run ~98*F @ Full Load (give or take a few degrees as each processor is obviously not going to run the same exact temps) overclocked to 1627.5mhz each (155mhz fsb). That is with both CPU'* running Thermaltake Volcano 9 Heatsink & Fan always on high (4800rpms). My rule of thumb for overclocking is to not let them run over 100*F. If they run over 100*F @ Full Load, turn them down until they don't. If you are not overclocking don't let them go over about 140*F because then you will start to get errors, and much warmer than that and damage can be done. I am only a Pentium guy, and I know AMD'* run warmer then Pentiums, but I try to keep the Pentiums (or any intel) below 100 just to be safe, I would think I would want to be about 125 or lower with an AMD.

Bus speed will make a big diff, since that'* where one of the larger bottlenecks are going to happen.

Note: This is only going to make a big diff if you're running very intensive calculation apps. I noticed a big diff from 133Mhz --> 144.

If you just browse the net and E-Mail people, don't even waste the effort, time, or money.

---------------------------

Hell guys, I've got lets see.... 3 comps running in this little room alone. Plus a 19" and a 17".

Go multi-monitor people. It'* the best thing since well, monitors. I was the person that pioneered this in my school, now everyone wants it. My system is actually setup to go triple monitor, I'm just a little short in the space department on my desk. I have both my monitors fulls of crap all the time, I need more desktop! (One at 1600, and one at 1280)

130 F or so is average on my AMD, it'* a 1.4 GHz T-Bird, according to AMD they are designed to run up to 203 F
