comment Are my CPU temperatures too high?
@ap0 I meant, check that he doesn't have fans sucking air in on both ends. Cold air in the front, cold air in the back, hot air gets to stay in the case getting hotted and hotter, it will get pushed out but it won't help to actively cool the case as you want.

comment Are my CPU temperatures too high?
@Bob indeed - the OP should also make sure the rear case fan isn't pushing air in, air needs to come in the front, through the case where it heats up, and then out the back.

comment How can I copy a directories contents alone?
shell scripting is programming, just as much as say, javascript is. However, you'll probably get a better answer on ServerFault.

comment How to enable hardware virtualization on Asus motherboard
FYI on my M4A78LT mobo, it was called "secure virtual machine" under the CPU tab. Sometimes I wish manufacturers wouldn't try to dumb things down.
