After three trips to Best Buy, two trips to Lowe's, a dozen phone calls, a bread knife, kitchen shears, some hair clipper oil, a can of air, some electronics degreaser, three sets of nylon screws/washers/nuts, forty bucks and a little panic, my computer has finally stopped making that horrible "oshi the processor is going to overheat, set fans to kill!$&*$&@*#" noise. Note, the LGA775 heatsink mounting pins suck cocks. I swear they were designed to break if you ever try to remove them. I cut through them with the scissors and knife and replaced them with the nylon screws, which work fine and exert plenty of pressure once I found the right diameter. Oiled the fan motors I didn't replace (video card, processor) with the clipper oil after degreasing the shit out of them to get the dust out of the works. Processor is now at a delightful 87F, mobo thermistor reads 114F. Also, the Antec-branded fans at Best Buy have shitty RPM indicators, one of them says it's spinning at 170,000RPM.
