Upon the pentium 4 after removing the sink quake ran horrible it was getting like 10-15FPS but that's becuase the pentium 4 has a toggling heat control thingy that brings its speed down to like a few hundred Mhz when they measured the temps it got 84F (289C). upon the pentium 3 quake locked up becuase the processor shuts down when it reaches a certain temp when they measured the temps it got 100F (37.8C). That goes to show that it too has a toggling thing but not as advanced as pentium 4. THe athlon thunderbird was quite amazing. When removing the heatsink quake 3 crashed and got an error and you saw smoke comming up from the core and the core was all white the temps reached 700F (371C) and the athlonmp was basically the same thing but a little more advanced, it has a throttling thing but not nearly as advanced as intel it can only detect 1 degree per second change removing a heatsink during gameplay is far more then that. So the thermal diode failed and the processor hit 560F (293.3C). I don't know if anyone already saw this video but I told you anyway. That goes to show that if I was at school and my heatsink fell off my room or house would light up in flames? lol
    heheh yea i saw that clip....it even has cool music to go with it:D

    :cool: So make sure your audio source is exterior to the pc you plan to burn and video tape so the cool music isn't interupted. :cool:

    well if they haven't I'm sure it'll motivate them to put some kind of thermal protection diode in there procecessors

    :cool: You coud design a tower case with the MB at the bottom lying flat - yes it would be wide - but then the HS & HSF should not fall off. :cool:
