Cooling Systems

Hey guys

I'm about to build my own HD video editing computer and I had everything figured out until i stumbled on this question. How much does the computer's cooling system actually matter. I know that if your computer doesn't have one, your cpu would overheat and start melting your motherboard. Do you would need one just to keep it below melting point when its running a torcher test.

The arctic freezer 7 is a great low price cpu cooler
As is the hyper 212 by coolermaster.

You could also use new thermal interface if the temps don't satisfy you.

Are Unix systems more secure than Windows systems?
Lately, I've heard some people say that the Unix code is more secure than the Windows code and that the Windows code has many holes and bugs in it. Before, I always thought Unix systems (for example, Mac) were less likely to get infected by viruses only because they had a lower market share....
