To reduce fan noise, for one.

Check the output of cpufreq-info, which governor is activated (on Slackware the user-space governor is the default when not running on a laptop)? I had to manually set all my cores to ondemand (if you use an Intel CPU better use pstate) in rc.local.

Thanks, but fan noise is not an issue. I use many large, slow-turning fans. I have a passive External SATA Drive enclosure whose single PS (presumably AT style) fan is nearly double the spl of my entire system. She's quiet!

The background, or desktop wallpaper if you will, "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance", correct? That is so cool.

While I am extremely pleased with performance, not only speed but how cool it runs, who doesn't want more at times and perhaps less when one doesn't need it. So while I have cpuidle enabled in my kernel I have all frequency scaling off. You have piqued my interest enough I plan to copy this kernel and then rebuild one with frequency scaling and see the difference. I'll do this after I bite the bullet for the upgrade install to 14.1.
Thanks again (I'm still wondering what caught your eye as my temps are quite low I think).

I wondered why your CPU cores run at 3.3GHz when your CPU load is only at 5%.

Wow I haven't seen that book in so long I didn't recall the cover. So I searched and the only thing I see is a drawing of a wrench growing out of the center of a plant.

The wallpaper/background is actually a photo I got from Astronomy Picture of the Day (APOD) commemorating Comet Hale-Bopp. It was taken by a somewhat famous and very industrious photographer named Jerry Lodriguss. I had a very hard time choosing to part with the previous wallpaper, also from APOD, Devil's Tower

Yeah you're right. Check out the similarity though. The image at the bottom of this page is why your desktop reminds me of it:

Greetings
Hmmmm the only problem with choosing such a beautiful town for a desktop is nobody wants to put an icon on it! That is gorgeous. I have to venture a guess. Even though I see you're from Croatia, it reminds me of shots of some Greek towns, so is it in Greece?
