Fifty-seven is fine. I've got an Athlon 2400+ clocked up to about a 3300+ sorta level, air-cooled with a nice big and under-volted Zalman sink and the case open. Very rarely gets above sixty in general use, and for gaming, I don my surround headset and crank the fans up.

Jobs: sixty is awful for a '64.

They give you a very minor effect, although I think, that it's just in your head (you expect some stronger effect and make your brain think, that it actually works).

in RAID, is it worth it? Post #192473
RAID is very old. Doesn't mean it's obsolete.

RAID0 is about double-performance, but, 'cos you have two drives involved, there's twice the chance of a failure. RAID1 is same-performance, but half the chance of data loss, because everything is written twice. Few people use that at home, though, I'd say. I'll be RAID0ing when I get my 2x300GBs soon.

RAID0+1 (not the same as RAID1+0, if that's the right way to write the other one) has a minimum, I believe, of three disks: two of which are set up in RAID0 (performance advantage) with the third storing some backup data.

Definitely use it, anyway! RAID0 for gamin' an stuff.

I presently have a 9800 Pro too (my 7900 is arriving tomorrow :) :) :) :) :)) and it's, well, fucked. Always doing crazy stuff. I think I mis-installed the replacement cooler I slapped on it.

Try opening the case and blowing cool air at it with a desk fan. If it's still buggered after a while... well, it's more likely to be permanent.
