you don't put a rice grain drop on the XP's......you're supposed to spread a thin layer on the core itself.......it's only on the AMD64s that have heatspreaders that you do that.

Also, keep in mind that with this warm weather, it won't run as cool as it would in the winter time.

Assuming he doesn't live in australia......in which it IS winter there.....and since he doesn't state where he lives....and considering theres people all over the world here...you cant assume he lives in the US or basically necessarily the northern hemisphere.
