Changed out my pc cooling hsfan to a volcano7+. I also compensated my motherboard 5 temp software to read what the bios says on startup.
Temps now for cpu are 46c at startup, but still rise to about 50 after a couple hours of mohaa or rtcw. 2 front fans, 2 rear fans and one side fan now. Also I saw that Thermaltake has a new chipset cooler called the tiger one for a P4 478. Are my temps in line now and has anyone used the tiger one? Oh yes and I overclocked my cpu from 1.8 to about 1.9 and the gf3ti200 is overclocked a little and using a thermaltake crystal orb.

Are you using thermal grease? If so which kind? you only overclocked by 100mhz, did you raise the CPU core voltage? 50c is kinda high but I don't think its a big deal to worry about, especially since you say you are having no problems with stability.
