Oh no I have no problem using a no securom crack. It's more along the lines of I don't want the crap installed in the first place, and then have to use a program to delete from the registry because it makes itself undeleteable.

Does anybody have any idea how I could find the optimal temperature for my laptop cpu to run at, I run games and it feels like it's running hot even on my cooling pad. I want to be sure to preserve my laptop and I can't find a way to find my high/low temperatures for my cpu (which is gonna run hotter anyway because it's an amd).

A thingy that tells you what the thermal probe in the cpu is reading for temp.  Generally, if you're running under 60 C (140 F) you'll be fine.  If you have an aggressive graphics card (read Geforce 9 series or ATI 38 or 48 series), bump that temp up 20 degrees C.

Haha, that's exactly the program I'm using to monitor it now thanks icy now I'm sure it's a quality program. I set the overheat protection for 80 degrees C because I do have a hardy graphics card, if it gets that hot it warns me and I can shut it down quickly. This is a laptop so it's delicate and prone to heating quicker so you can understand my concern.

Agreed.  Laptops shouldn't leave scars when they sit on your lap. :)  That's left to kittens.

Right, well while playing a game my laptop runs at about 75C average, so about 15 degrees off the lethal temp and 5 off of what I deem a cutoff point. Not great but acceptable for my gaming purposes.

My vid card runs at ~50-52C idle, ~56-60C in games.
CPU, ~38-40C idle, ~46-50C in games.

But, desktops have advantageous airflow, so...

Also, there might be some programs that will allow you to adjust your fan speeds.  My GPU fan was set to 22% when I first got it, and it would get to ~70-74C in games, which I thought was not good, so I fount RivaTuner for it and I bumped it up to 80% speed on startup, and now it never goes above ~62C on hot days.  If you've got an Nvidia card, check out RivaTuner, good stuff.  I also manually set my CPU fan to 80% as well, cause I hate auto-control fans when they rev up and down constantly while I'm playing a game or processing videos or photoshopping.

Yay for fugly motherboard temp monitoring GUIs.

I've been looking for a fan control software similar to that, my issues are
1) my card is a ATI Radeon Mobility HD 4200
2) Windows 7 wont let me install any program with unsigned drivers
3) my laptop isn't fully supported by Speedfan

I will press on and keep trying to find something that will let me kick the fan speed up a little.

RivaTuner should work with ATI cards as well, you might have to double check on that.

Upon further inspection it appears that my GPU doesn't have a variable fan speed.

There is a way to install unsigned drivers but this will require you to do some mucking around with system files.  Afterward you will have to keep starting Windows via F8 on boot screen and then selecting "enable unsigned drivers" or something of that sort.  I had to do this when I wanted to overclock USB ports to play BlazBlue CS with better response times.

Yeah I had to do some of that. On the plus side, with my keeping my room cool I played for about an hour and a half and it only got up around 60-70C.

Not really, the programs don't support the board and my fan isn't variable so it won't change. I'm just keeping the area around my laptop cooler, we'll see how it holds up in the long run.

Put my fan on my desk, it blows cool air into my cooling pad which blows it in turn into my laptop, which caused a 57C gaming temp. This is excellent progress.

If we trend at this rate, by tomorrow, your room will be colder than it is outside, and by next week, your new nickname will be "Mr. Freeze" and you'll live on the surface of Pluto.

With a name like that it's Pluto or Gotham City. Either way I'll get a funny looking suit. I guess it's just whether you want a middle aged man in a bat suit bothering you periodically.

Mass Effect= A+ so far, but Bioware is always good.

Can I run Fallout 3? I have the necessary specs for CPU, GPU, etc. but does it work on Windows 7? I have home premium so it has both 32 and 64 bit. I've seen both yes and no and I'd like to know if anyone has firsthand experience before I buy it.

Side by side on my piano keyboard why don't W7 and Fallout 3?
