This may be a dumb question, but where in Windows can you see the temp?

some mobos come with a windows hardware monitoring utility. older mobos probably do not have one. there are 3rd party software hardware monitors , maybe micro can tell you i think one was called motherboard monitor.

Uhm.. 22C??

Geez.. My Intel P4 3.0 is at 36-40 all the time with the intel monster CPU cooler. Im confused. At what temp should the CPU be on acutally? 22 seem very nice. One problem I have is that the fan speed up to 5000+ rpm and the whole case is vibrating like a womens toy. And yes.. I got 6 fans in my box, plus 2 on the power, fans on each lian li harddrive casing.. Something smells wrong.. As long as the CPU doesn't go up to 50 C and above and melt im fine however.. but my fiance really hates the sound when this one speeds up..
