3.0Charlie: Do you use the onboard video card? If so, I found that had a slightly slower cpus. This is maybe why you have a TPF higher than me

Yes and no - I use Remote Desktop Connection for GUI access. Or there is a BIOS setting that's different.
Time to buy 2 cheap, fanless GPUs me thinks...

Which low-power GPU manufacturer behaves better with a Linux OS? Team Green, or Team Red? Also, the Onboard chip is from ASpeed, which is a stand-alone (inbedded) chip. I don't think it should have an impact on the CPU usage. Then again, I could be wrong.

I'm using a GTX460 with Ubuntu and never had an issue, so I would think you are good with the green team.

The newer linux OS systems really don't have that many issues with Graphics cards at the most you might have a bit of playing around if you use an ATI card but even then if you have problems ( which I used to) just go to the linuxquestions.org site and you most likely will get all your answers there.
I actually have a question about watercooling this type of system, coul;d someone just use a standard cpu watercooling blockas long as you have the proper plates ( block plate and back back) . also if this can be done do you think a duel rad would be enough to cool both cpus?

I love the way this thread has taken on a life of its own, reminds me of the SR2 thread of not so long ago.
