What are these 5 machines doing...calculating the precise date of the end of the world?

I have a midlevel gaming box that is running around 53C when it gets above 80F or so (AMD Athlon 64 3200+)....not OCed at all. Alarm is set at 54C. Should I worry?

You have no vibration problems relative to the HD?

The proposed idle parameter for desktops is 50~60W AC
Hmm... I have a PIII that pulls down 70W@100%CPU whenever it's on. I've been wondering, does anyone have any experience w/ low power rigs? I was about to pull the trigger and build a Via C3 based computer to take over server duties from the old PIII, but I've read that it'll still pull down 50W, so it would take at least two years of constant operation before it paid itself off. My 19" CRTs since they only pull down ~60W, so given the much higher cost it may take those several years to pay themselves off. I wouldn't be surprised if they died before that. If I could drop the server's power consumption down to ~20-30W it would be worthwhile since it would pay itself off in one year of constant operation, but as it stands, modern chips just are too $$$ or consume too much power to be worthwhile in the role of a server.
