Yeah that CPU will run nice and cool. I ran a Turion on an ECS board a while back and it barely needed tobe cooled. Just some airflow and a heatsink.

One thing I should mention though, is that that CPU probably won't work well for HDTV signals. My 3200+ Sempron AM2, which in any benchies, beat both my ML-30s to hell, struggles with recording and playing at the same time for normal TV. And my 4200+ x2 was just enough to make it run smooth.

That being said, its a nice setup, and nice to see a Turion. I love those little things! Mine OCed like nuts. And then it blew up cause I was just using a modified HSF brtacket and not a special rig. Make sure yours is on TIGHT.
