Hey everyone, just thought I'd join a forum, not sure if this is the best pc forum to join but its a start.

I'm Travis H.


CPU: Athon XP 3200+
Mobo: Abit NF7s 2.0
OS: Windows XP Pro
Ram: 1024 RAM
Cooling: Extreme Volcano 12 Cooler
VGA: Raedon 9800 Pro (128)

I know that Artic Silver 5 is the way to go, but i was getting rapid increasing cpu temp, so I went to Circuit City today and got some Antec Formula5 compound, and it lowered my cpu from 43 to 35/36 at idle steadily. Of course the old stuff was oem goop that came with the volcano cooler, and I applied too much of it, but still, 35 is quite respectable.

Look forward to posting/reading in the forums.
