Re: [vox] forget my previous post

Sorry, forgot to ask in my last post.

I just built a new athlon 1.4Ghz system myself.  This is the first time I'd 
done anything like this.  Everything seems to run smoothly, except my 
processor is running like a fireball!  62 degrees Celsius on average and 
it'll creep up to 70 if I really tax the processor.  This over 140-150 
degrees Fahrenheit.

I figure this can't be good and I'm wondering what options (besides 
sticking a few more fans into the case) I have.  Could it be poor contact 
between the heat sink and the processor?

Also, I have a 64MB GeForce2 400/MX.  It's probably nothing compared to 
Pete's, but I'll see if (when I get linux up and running on the new box) I 
can benchmark it.  Will let us know how much better Pete's card 
is >;-).  Yes, I know the nVidia chips aren't the most linux/open source 
friendly, but it was a decent price for the card and I didn't want to break 
the bank.
