    Hello guys,
    I bought a Dell Dimension 8300 last year and am still happy. But the cooler
    makes to much noise while playing 3D games like need for speed underground,
    so i want to change it. Has anyone an idea, which coole can i take? The PC
    ist not very big and i heared that Dell doesn't follow the ATX Norms, so, I
    dont know how to realise it.

    I thought of the Zalman Cooler, forgot the name, the big thing ;)

    Actually, i installed a Zalman Heatpipe for the Radeon 9800, which is a
    great thing. It makes really no noise, even not if i play.

    thanx for all information

    you can only flash the bios with a bios supplied by Dell for that

    you can download a Motherboard Monitoring software ....and see if it
