Good deal Spooky. Meghan is one of my favorite individuals at HS that I have dealt with and continue to deal with. She has always been very helpful. Looking forward to your's and Spygirl's reviews.

 Playing DVD (LOTR:TFOTR) - CPU=2.23GHz, temp=58.0C - 60.0C, fans on full time.
[edit again] Interesting... once I switched on hardware accelleration in WinDVD 4, the temp seemed to drop down to about 56.0c - 58.0C.
[edit once again]OK... about 5 minutes of FarCry using native resolution and medium quality gives me full CPU (2.23GHz) and a temp of 63.0C. Fans brought it down to 45.0 in about 2 minutes, tops. Note that these settings are not the FarCry auto-detect settings (not sure if that'll make a difference).
[edit still again]Woah... I definitely don't recommend playing in native mode with full performance turned on. When I exited FarCry this time, my CPU temp was spiked at 70.0C!!! I'll have to play around with those settings a bit more tomorrow.. that's if for me tonight.
