When I am doing an optimized defrag, this thing sends my CPU temp through the roof even after I dusted the damned thing. As I type this, my CPU sits at 61*C (which is cold compared to the 67* before I dusted it). It is an open case, and in order to get the thing not to lock solid at 74*C, I have to stick a box fan in front of the case. Yeah, a box fan, no shit. Anyway, is this normal for SysMech4? Could a larger hard drive (120gb vs 60) running at a slower speed (oh how I hate that its a 5400rpm instead of a 7200) make it do that?

Are you doing any overclocking? Either way, a hard drive defrag can be quite cpu intensive. The cpu is trying to keep track of each sector on your HD and therefore run hotter. the older AMDs are notorious for heating up, overclocking can intensify this.

Not as far as I know. My other AMD 950 runs at 105*C!
