just a general query here about the heat on shuttle PC's

i have been thinking about getting a socket A system, would a high end skt A
processor (3200+) get really hot?

another thing is, the case cover panels, the AGP slot appears to be on the
far edge of the particular shuttle i am looking at

doesnt the graphics card get HOT?

has anyone had a high end geforce card in a shuttle that can comment?

as for hdd, this is a passing question that i have been too lazy to look up
but how about drive bays?

there is one external 5.25 bay 0 internal 5.25 bays

one external 3.5 bay but how many internal 3.5 bays? for hard drives.... i
was thinking of getting 2 really quiet 5400rpm hard drives, but i can only
find 40GB capacity that will fit 3.5 bay, could i install 2 of these drives
or is there only room for one... bear in mind i will be using the external
3.5 bay

what temps have people had their CPU's at? i mean AMD2500 up to AMD3200+ if
anyone could comment

is it above 50 degrees C at idle or what?

or are they as low as 38 ish?

i am just curious before i go in and take the plunge, i dont wanna end up
with a nce looking radiator.

Thanks for any advice to come

No.

Not really although some people have drilled a square of small 1-1.5mm
holes where the fan is.

One dedicated 3.5" HDD bay but if you don;t put in a floppy you can use
that too.

OK...

I used the thermal paste that came with the Shuttle and it idled at 52C
and went up to 56C full load.

I recently changed it for Artic Silver 5, applying as per Artic Silver
instructions and it has dropped down to 46 idle, 48 load.
