Everything else is on stock cooling, so they are only at 50-60%.
GLaDOS is my main rig, although I reinstall the OS every few months or so.
I do like GLaDOS as a name...Portal really is very fun
The X4 certainly is a hot-running chip. I'd say that your C2D and C2Q should be capable of 100% load--if not, do you want a new cooler for the C2Q? I have a flower-style Zalman one that I can send your way if it would help
