    If you do decide to use liquid cooling, I would message WuNgUn, he is the only person that has successfully aplied water cooling to a car pc install. I was going to try it, but thats to scary for me.

    It's only $80 and I just read an article about it in MaximumPC and they rated it a 9.

    I use the bigger version of this in my gaming Rig and must admit CoolitSystems makes very good products.
    That is for a 775 socket. I use a socket p processor. I've seen those products before. After digital open my eyes to thermoelectric coolers.

Technically have a laptop processor now so i dunno what their normal temp is. The datasheet claims that it will work fine if i keep it under its thermal junction temp. The microprocessors i work with at work claim the same thing but i don't really know what kind MTFB results from keeping it at such a high temp.
    most mobile processors are rated for 100C..... 212 farh before anything nasty happens.... if you are worried get make sure the MoBo is extended temp, but then again if you got extended temp mobo you'd know cause they are $$$

    They have different socket adapters, you just have to call them and they can tell you if they have one that will work for you or not.

    I'll have to look into that if my other (cheaper) solutions don't work. Still waiting for a fail. I was running at 60C today without issue but i think the test is coming up this week when it gets to 90F out here. I finally got my XM working. I wish i could tell you guys why it wasn't working but i changed nothing besides turned buffering off then on and then it started working again. I hope centrafuse does something with this shaky plugin. Now it would be nice if i could always use the preamp volume in centrafuse but iguidance doesn't like that so when ever i use iguidance it auto switches from preamp to amp volume. Kinda annoying but i just turned down the volume in iguidance and that helps a bit.

    Really 60C isn't all that hot. I've seen benchmarks with stock heatsinks running an app like Nero and running around 55C so there ya go... Now if you start getting up around 75-80ish C then I'd be worried!!
