Say what? does that help? what does it really do?

Everone seems to be avoiding my cooling-OCing question...

Yes you will need mroe fans to OC. Happy? Ocing will cause more heat, you can't have too many fans, so go wild Most people cut their own holes and put fans in, so you could put them whereever. A couple on top and some in the back should give you sufficient cooling, aalong with a good CPU HSF.

Old Specs:
Intel Celeron D 2.8Ghz
80G Seagate Baracuda 7200.7
GeForce FX5500 (PCI) OCed to 300/500
am I missing anything?


Now: Toshiba Sattelite L35-S2161 running Ubuntu :)
