Saga of the Mighty Whine Might Be Ending

The dual processor workstation that I've been fighting seems to have given up the battle. Temperatures are now decent and staying well within limits. Runs smoothly after swapping chips in sockets, using arctic silver heat sink medium and reconfiguring the hardware. When you have huge heat sinks with definite directional requirements it's best to adhere instead of using them bass-ackwards. Oh well, just another in a long line of mistakes. Tough machine to bench. Yet it is outstanding as far as performance. Rocks Guild Wars for sure. Multi-taskiing is not a problem. All in all a super save with all our combined efforts after replacing the defective motherboard. Shouts out to all those that have helped! Just goes to show with the right tweaks an older unit can still walk that dog! I have little doubt this computer can run Window 7 (32bit) with ease.

That's it. Later!
