It's worth noting that you can disable it for the just the nic (via several "offload" properties) as opposed to the whole machine (via registry). The linked kb explains it as the last option.

Thanks for the traffic contention tip. The guys at Aruba concurred. Aruba has some great user management firms/software too.

Good point correlating the fan speed to power consumption. And you are also right in that I exaggerated my fan speed. It does not run at the 100% "post" speed all the time but does maintain a constant roar - especially compared to all my other computers. Any suggestions about managing the power? Thanks

OK now that piques my interest. Where did you adjust that? My Bios has no power management section at all.

I thought I had done that, but double checked and ... doh, first rule in problem sloving make sure the drivers and bios are up to date. Unfartunately it does not seem to give me any more options either in bios or windows power settings. Any utilities you know of that might help?
