Yeah I know exactly what you mean. I have always tried to keep components extra cool. I even take off stock Video Card heatsinks & fans, then apply some Arctic Silver. Usually stock comes with a little square pad instead of real paste.
This is an older Socket 478 board, so there should be plenty of old HS&Fan combos out there to do an upgrade.
But its pretty low on my priorities right now, in time...
What will probably happen is a friend will need a motherboard or a refurbished computer and I'll pop the ECS in there and do the testing then.
So hopefully by then I'll remember which board was having the issues.

Thanks for the tips
