@whs, I see. So, my mistake was believing that CoreTemp produced accurate readings, at least for AMD processors. That means CoreTemp readings are useless for comparing Intel and AMD processor temps -- like apples and oranges. As a wise man once said, "...I am not so sure how good the readings of the CoreTemp program are." As I'm typing this, my Q6600 reads 37,37,34,34C in CoreTemp and that means...absolutely nothing because I no longer trust this app.

That about sums it up. But isn't that the case with most nums. It's an approximation. As I type this, I read 44, 38, 43, 45. It may not be accurate, but it's entertaining and fun to watch. The best way to measure the heat of your system is using your fingers - and let me tell you, on my HP laptop I get blisters if I forget to turn the coolpad on.
I use the weather gadget that came with Vista, in my sidebar.
It is set the local town (14 miles away)
Any bad weather coming, comes from that direction.
Nice little early warning system.
Ross, what is it that you like about Mac so much? I'd choose Windows anyday - i know there are loads of problems, but with anything like that there are bound to be, and I don't mind too much anyway - I love Windows and its usability, compatability and everthing else!
Yeah I've heard about boot camp - supposed to be quite good, but I imagine having vista AND os x will use a fair amount of disk space, but then again i expect theses 'super-macs' come with huge hard drives?!
I have been looking deeply into boot-camp..and so far, all i can say is, its really impressive.
i highly suggest to any tech using vmware to use it, thats under the circumstanse of having a >Blazing< fast MAc with alot of hardrvie memory...
Below is a screenshot of someone partitioning Windows XP and using bootcamp! but its the same for Windows vista...
