I really appreciate the temp alarms that gkrellm has. I've been spending a lot of time screwing with video lately, so I get to watch CPU0 go to yellow alert (58C) and CPU1 go to red alert (60C)

So, I'm mpeg encoding Get Smart #5 right now. It's great, it's the one where we meet The Craw. (not The Craw, The Craw!) Using cinelerra and my wireless connection, I can cut out the commercials and actually mpeg encode in the background while I wait for class to start in the morning. Unfortunately, I can't check for a/v sync. This file loses sync towards the end, so that also has to get edited. I wonder if there's any network audio streaming solution I can use that will gaurantee sync with the video that's also being sent over the network. This may be something separate that has to get hacked into cinelerra.

I think I'm going to have to put linux onto my windows box in a dual boot, so that I can harvest its CPU when I'm working in cinelerra, or transcode, or other cluster enabled stuff.

I'm pretty certain your cooling rig isn't adequate at all. I'm 36 idle, 47 after 48 hours of 100% use.

I wouldn't go that far. If my temps were in the 90s, then we would be talking inadequate ;)

What processor do you have, and what's the room temperature?

I've got MP1900+, and it's 30C in here.

My airflow isn't particularly good, but it is particularly quiet. So if that means being 40C under maximum rather than 50C, it's good enough for me :)
