Re: Repair or replace

Actually, I already run regular Arctic Silver on the cpu and gpu. It does help, but this thing has a freakin desktop processor in it!

The hinges break on this thing.. This will be the fourth set I have put on there.

I'm probably going to fix it, and then see about a new one after I get my "new" van running...

Underclocking as was said up above will help you then.
I did not know it was a desktop cpu. If its a 3.2 Ghz then a underclock to probably 2.8 Ghz will help loads. A laptop cooler is not designed to wick the heat of a desktop cpu. Another thing one may do is use a Laptop mat with fans in conjunction of underclocking.

Win 8 is salvagable as long as you run Classic Shell to mimic Win 7 or XP's GUI.
