I think im just gunna go with the max orb or big typhoon at tiger direct (i have a store by me). I think pretty much anything is better than what I have now. I bet that 34c in real temp is the real temp of my cpu lol. I would buy vdub's but I really dont want to deal with paypal and shipping and all that.

realtemp is accurate for 45nm. go with its temps.

As long as i have enough money for condoms, computer parts and booze i'm happy. If you have to hold back on any of those, make sure you buy the condoms first, otherwise you are likely to have even less money to spend.

real temp doesnt drop under 31c... why is that? Do I need to calibrate it or something?

maybe your cpu temp isnt under 31*...thats pretty good for idle temps. and no, you shouldn't have to calibrate it.
