If was any Intel except a PII 400 it probably wouldn't be running. They are a hot SOB anyway, but a new heatsink/fan is called for here.

Thanks, I did lower the temp 8-12*F.
I cleaned off the thermal paste then cleaned the core with rubbing alcohol on a cotton ball. I Let it dry then reapplied the paste and the temps dropped.
