i took out my internal audigy card, and am using onboard sound...i also took out the blower, as i thought the gfx card might overheat too....i have the fans set a lot higher though...do you have smart fans disabled in the bios? i did, because if i start the system, at least it starts cool, with both fans running at 100%
right now the cpu fan is running at 99% and the system fan at 66%...i just set them to 50% each now and see what happens - i do think that the software utility reports the cpu temps a little too low though
can you tell me what your voltages are at from the bios? mine are borderline...a modder friend of mine told me that it was at best a fairly unstable system from the sound fo things.
anyway, let me know those voltages if you can. how do you like the onboard audio?
any more issues with your machine? id be interested to hear.
well, thanks again. i feel less like i just wasted a load of money
