    How hot is too hot for an Intel?

    Silly question, but why are you using the stock fan? Not a good idea to use a stock fan on an expensive processor. Spend the twenty bucks to get a decent fan. It is good sense if you pay a lot of money on a processor to not use a cheap fan on it.

    Anybody else use only the onboard audio?

    There is a difference in opinion between a couple people on whether the onboard sound or sound card requires less system resources. Wish I could see some benchmarks between onboard sound vs. sound card. Prove it one way or the other.
