    I see there's lots of threads dealing with video card OCing and Cooling. Think i'm gonna start something for CPU and cooling :cool:

    My system specs are as follows:
    AMD 3200+
    GA-7n400 Pro2 rev2
    Antec PlusView1000
    3 intake and 2 exhaust fans.
    Gigabyte 3d Ultra Cooler GT

    I'm currently idling at 48c and loading at 55c. I guess this is ok but the prob is these temps are recorded during winter. With spring and summer approaching, I'm sure these temps will no longer hold true, especially because I'm planning to do a little bit of OCing :mad: I'm thinking of getting the Thermaltake Pipe 101 Heatsink. What do you guys think?

    I'm currently using a thermal paste from Balance Stars with 10% silver included. Will using artic silver 5 help in lowering my temps?
