Well I grabbed an old coolermaster cooler for the CPU, got the temps to 40/55, good enough for a prescott.

The HDD temps baffle me though, I have a 60mm fan that I modded to spin full speed (it was factory modded to run at 5v) that pulls fresh air in from the front, right across the drive. I swapped out the low speed dual 60mm in back for faster ones, cleared all cabling away.

I still get idle temps of 40-42 and load temps of 50*C!

This same drive was in an HP case before in a cramped little 51/4 to 3.5 adapter right below the dvd drive in a 2 slot cage with no fan at all, it never got over 40... wtf?
