windows slowers down the longer you leave it on the buffers begin to fill up but if you have quite a bit of ram or a ram cleaning program this won't be a problem

Does this only apply to the newer or recent Dells? My friend has a Dell from I think, 3 years ago. And whatever program I installed to monitor it's temps, it doesn't show. Whether it be Everest, Core Temp (found out they don't support P4s), and Speedfan.

No, I don't get temps either. The new dells allow you to read DTS values from C2Ds though, as shown in his screenshot.

****, what are you running to get 100% all the time?

Dell's were previously terrible for cooling. Last time I know about them being overheated would be around 2005-6 so I am not sure, they may have advanced in their technology.

Electricity bill is not a problem so I will bill leaving it up 24/7 from now on and possibly participating in Folding@home or some such. Should I also just leave the hard disk spinning, like not make it spin down after 20 mins??
