NoFan TBird

With regards to all the talk about noise and fanless system:

Here’s my severely underclocked TBird (1200) running at 550Mhz, at 1.45v, without a
fan, after running Prime95 for a couple hours.

(Ed.note: Kevin’s picture showed completed runs of Prime95, but I cropped so you could
read the important numbers.

That’s 74C. 74C = 165F. That’s above AMD’s recommended sustained maximum temperature. Those
90 or 95C maximum you read about are absolute, for very short periods of time, maximums. Don’t do this unless you wouldn’t
mind a CPU keychain along with other possible damage to other components. If you do, and get burned, that’s your responsibility, not


Pretty hot, eh?
