Default My Airflow Mod for Passive R4350

The case is a Rosewill matx .
Newegg.ca - Rosewill R115-P BK Black SECC Steel MicroATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases
Inside is a P4 3.0c Northwood in an MSI 945GCM478,
Newegg.ca - MSI 945GCM478-L 478 Intel 945GC Micro ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards
2g of DDR2 and a 350W Sparkle 120mm PSU
I cut the receiver for a Mediagate Windows Vista MCE Infrared Remote Control into the floppy slot cover with my trusty dremmel.
NCIX.com - Buy Mediagate Windows Vista MCE Infrared Remote Control for Home Premium & Ultimate Black - GP-IR01BK In Canada.

I previosly had anXT1650 that died when I tried running the fan at 5V so I got an MSI R4350 Passive.
I haven't been able to get ATITOOLS to read the temps on it.

I took a cpu airhorn off an old case and bolted it to my sidecover with a blockoff plate and aimed it directly at the gpu.

As you can see in this pic (sort of) the horn is aimed pretty good.

I risked life and limb and snuck a smoke into my office to see if it works and it seems like it is.

I was just going to ask what temps you get, i found HWMonitor works at least with my parent's Pentium D: http://www.cpuid.com/download/hwmoni..._114_setup.exe
