Not wanting to deal with the LCS repair, I went the air route. Had a non working gal core 2.0 so used the heatsink and one of the cpus of the Quad to make a 2.5 dual core air cooled. Idles at 39C with fans at 500 rpm...Still need to run it at full. Definitely lower the my old 2.0 dual core but not by much

So it seems it heats up really quickly...cores hit 80-90C on Geekbench where the 2.0 cores hits 40C...

Going back to the 2.0 dual core for now...seems 2.5 on air is a stretch
