    Motherboard monitor... http://www.majorgeeks.com/download.php?det=311

    I have it and it works great. It monitors you cpu temp and case temp.

    I recently bought a fan that went up to 3500 rpm, and this thing is LOUD! I removed it and replaced it with the older one, since this thing seriously sounds like a real vacuum.

    If you're going to get a hard rive, make sure you buy one that is SATA compatable, and is about 7400 rpm. Anything below that is super slow. Also, make sure it has a 16mb cache.

    Personally, if you're into gaming, I would go with Western Digital, since they have really fast HDDs.

    Sorry bout that man, it's an old HDD, so I was to lazy to look on the cover to see the rpms, so I just guessed.

    Btw, I dont think you're allowed to do that... I think you should've pm'ed me or something.
