    CPU temp and that gel on the heat-sink?

    I think ill just run it on the ps3, every so oftern, doing my little bit :) and its around 200watt for a 6 hour simulation (average WU time on PS3) so I can leave on overnight, it shuts itself down after the WU. As I lost my job the other day I cant be pushing watts out of all my tech all day :(

    SOLVED CCleaner Drive Wiper?

    You can recover information after formating the drive several times if you have the correct software (not cheap, FBI use it) but could you not get a cheap hd and put windows on? I never give my old hd away even if I format, I'm way paranoid about data/id theft.
