Ugh that didn't look too good. I hope mine's OK, it's been there for a year now. I guess I will go to air cooling for a but once the CPU comes through and check it then.

Just one more thing, what is the max RAM you can utilize with XP/Vista 32bit? I'm thinking of going with OCZ gold/blade.

A 32 bit OS can recognize a total of 4gb, but that's including VRAM. So take however much your video card has, subtract that from 4gb, and that's about how much the OS will recognize.

EVGA E758 A1 | Core i7 920 @ 4ghz | 6GB DDR3 1600 OCZ Gold | XFX 6870 CF | Corsair TX850 | Cooler Master HAF 932 | Water Cooled
