Oh wow, my zalman scores about half as good as the 212, for only 5 euros more. Thanks for the document! Might consider buying it.

I have turned the case fans to maximum myself. But then again, the temperature appears to stay the same with the case fans on minimum speed. I have quite a few cables running on the sides of the airflow. Tried to stuff them away, but I don't have enough place. (should have bought the modular PSU :3 )

1. What does this mean for the airflow? 2. I have a Zalman CNPS7000B-Cu. 4. I clean it regularly (once a month or more often if I have a lot of dust) 5. Might consider that, though I don't have such a unit.

After it booted it happens quite often, though I'm mostly getting it out of sleep (the mode where the pc completely shuts down but keeps the session). Normal boots are way faster. Firefox is particularly slow when starting, but not always. So I just went to check, and it seems to have HDD access issues. It has a lot of connections open with the HDD, but does nothing with them.

I also don't suspect the razer drivers to be resource hogs. Though 2 instances of each of the drivers (one for keyboard and one for mouse) is odd

Tried the procedure.. But it gave me a BSOD. After I rebooted and waited a few minutes, I got another BSOD. The error was: BCCode: 1e BCP1: FFFFFFFFC0000047 BCP2: FFFFF80002EC85FC BCP3: FFFF000003008100 BCP4: FFFF000000000080 OS Version: 6_1_7601 Service Pack: 1_0 Product: 256_1

@ Connor, Ok, I will ;) any guideline for when should I start to worry? When idle it flashes 1-2 times a sec, very briefly.

@Connor Can you point me to any good HDD tests? :) As far as I can tell, it never maxxes out. I use the latest Avast
