Ok, all I have is a serous case of dust contamination. This means two things:
I need to start cleaning my case more often.
I need a new processor fan/cooler, because the one I have is now making a ticking noise.
As I remember it, however, I dislike the mounts for the 775 coolers. They use friction pins, which seems to me to be a recipe for cracking your mother board. All cooler/fan recommendations will be considered. Cool vs. quiet debates will be entertained. The cooler & fan I'm using are the stock Intel pack ins.
