    Oh just thought of one :)

    Make sure that your meter is set for night time tariff (at the switchboard)
    Pretty sure it will be anyway ;)

    arghhh.can anyone tell if intel DG31PR mobo can control fan speed or not?cuz my fan remains at a constant speed all the time...whereas on my bro's pc which has intel D945GNT mobo the fan noise changes as if it is going faster when a game is being played or movie is being watched
