Hahaha I love that idea. Well I guess that if we're comparing e-peens on hwbot, I might as well do what I can. It seems that it pays to be Canadian sometimes!

I thought Intel's TDP were lower than the actual max, to give a margin of safety? Either way I wouldn't want to go past the TDP rated for my CPU.

On that note, how do I know if my CPU is drawing up to the 65 watts it is rated for the TDP? I am unsure how to calculate this. Right now I am at 10x350mhz @ 1.431v (I will be looking this up right after too), and how do I know the TDP the TRUX120 is meant to handle? I've read many reviews that give differing answers without a consensus...

Thanks!
