I finally took the time to remove the BIOS fan (that one that has been whirring for months) from my motherboard. I think I mentioned earlier that apparently it doesn’t make any difference as long as you’re not overclocking. Well, I’m not overclocking. So far it’s been 2 minutes and it’s all looking good!
I can’t believe how quiet my computer is again. :D I still haven’t reconnected the 120mm fan at the back, either, due to all the dust it sucks in. Maybe I can find a nice little filter or something and slide that inbetween the fan and the case. Maybe I wont bother if the temperature stays alright.
Speaking of temperature, I also took the opportunity to actually move my sound card down a few slots, so that it wasn’t crammed up in the face of my video card. The video card’s temperature has already dropped from 90° to 70° when I try maxing it out with some hardcore 3D rendering. Good times. Maybe BF2 wont fuck up as much now.
I don’t want to go to work today. :(

Interesting copyright article. Stupid copyright protection thing on my Gelbison CDs makes them not play on my computer’s CD drive. Boo.
The bastards are keeping tivo out of Australia?! Wah. :(
What a coincidence- I removed the BIOS fan from my motherboard the other day as well. It was very therapeutic.
