comment Safe long-term CPU temp?
I just noticed you mentioned a Higher nvidia card. I would be more worried about overall temp causing problems with the video than the cpu. The dell M series has a seperate nvidia card and it burns out all the time due to improper design/build and poor fan settings for bios. Yourse has onboard video which is about an inch away from the cpu or so, it also shares the heat pipe with the cpu. the more heat one puts out the less cooling the other gets.

comment Safe long-term CPU temp?
athomsfere is correct about lower temp also those # that intel gives out are a "risk management" calculation. intel expects the cpu to last say 5 years so they rate it for maximum temp with a % for saftey that they expect to allow it to live past 5 years. Just turning something on shortens its life, measurable % or not it will ware out. The question is will that affect be soon enough for you to care or notice.

comment Safe long-term CPU temp?
I would say that current cpu's can be intelligent enough to throttle down assuming the os and every thing works correctly. had a dell tech forget the heat sync on a D620 systemboard swap. the pc ran for about 6 months before the user complained to us. PC was running wicked hot [scalding on bare skin] and the os had throttled to 200mhz. It is possible for them to save them selves from cricical failures but I can't immagine how much service life that removed. on the flip side surviving is very different than preforming well.

comment Command Prompt - Accessing “Access is Denied” folder
If the drive is already mapped by gpo this may have issues. you may have to run some complex runas/cmd trickery to get a cmd prompt to work for the stated purpose. I dont have any of the cmd info with me but can provide if needed

comment Safe long-term CPU temp?
you have to look at the cpu specs and verify what the maximum temp is for your chip. my 12core is 58C i believe. I can get it to 55C+ with about 10 threads of prime or another cpu burnin test. In my case currently i cant use over 75% of max cpu if i want to keep my processor alive. I would never run max temp either. another thing Sapalajo didnt mention is that any flaws in the chip will likely be the first to be affected so you may have stability or other quarky issues because that 1 part of the chip couldent handle the heat.

Thank you for the wonderful solution to the question I asked. I tried it out today and was able to get all the tools I needed working properly. I looked through the info and was glad to see it didnt appear to change the pe licencing like dart does so I will be able to use it.

I take that back I believe DART requires software assurance or enterprise licencing.

adding the ability to use the standard windows explorer ui to move and open files is a bonus but not the main issue. Many programs use calls to the explorer.exe api in order to create windows to browse the file system. any thing from office file save as to the browse buttons in things like unstopible copier. if you cause one of those dialog boxes to be called you either get a blank window or nothing happens. like how chm files dont work in win2000 if you tear out ie because they are just webpages stored on your hdd for help files.

comment Windows PE Recovery CD with explorer shell
if other propritary software was not used i could easily use a linux rescue disk but unfortunatly there are other things involved making it a need to use a pe invironment. winpe 3 aka windows7 pe is what i am using right now for the base. DART is not free you need a ultimate? or enterprise licence to use it legally.
