Recommend Me a Mobo

Can anyone recommend a 939 motherboard that doesn't use active cooling on the chipset? I'm looking to build a HTPC and I don't want the additional noise.

Yeah, I know it should work automatically, but it's getting to be kind of a pain to redo it after every time he checks code in and out. I guess I'm just getting lazy. I already wrote a script to change the EOL characters.

Visual Studio Problem

So I'm working a group project and one of our members has apparently edited the code with a Mac and resaved the file with Mac line breaks in it. VS is really choking on them and seems to be adding an extra line of whitespace to every line. Does anybody know how to make this stop?

I don't really consider Oblivion a time sink when compared to WoW or Guild Wars. You constantly get new quests and advance the story. All WoW comes down to is running the same half dozen or so instances in the end game. I guess may PvP too, but this doesn't seem to suck up peoples' time like the isn...
