  1. There aren't really any other fans you can use.

    However, you can adjust your power profile to lower your CPU clockspeed and the fan should slow down.
  2. do you know what the best software for that "frozenlead"

    also does anyone know about this... i was thinking about purchasing this.. but not sure

  4. The thermal paste really won't affect your temperatures that much. Maybe by one or two degrees, but the power settings will give you better results.

    The software you need is built into windows. Just go under control panel and play around with the power settings.
