Re: How do you organize your music?

I have a music folder and then each album is in its own folder, previously i used Media Monkey for ripping and scraping but now i just use mediaplayer on my pc or the built in scraper in xbmc.

V1.0 GPU fan

I have a V1.0 console with a noisy gpu fan, just about to dig thru my spares but wondering if any one has just removed the fan and relied on the console fan for cooling ?
