:o

My guess is it would work a bit better with a Prescott :wind:

That's funny sh*t. If you really want to fry an egg well, just get an Athlon 64, or as the article says, an Athlon XP. Prescott wouldn't produce a very good egg though. :wink:

This is quite old.I was searching for the link with pics.Thanks a lot TheCDBurner for the link.

I agree with aviationwiz.Athlon will cook a lot faster than any Pentium.

I don't think it's humorous at all. Every modern CPU has overheat issue. You have to get a reasonably good heatsink and a good fan. Even if the brand A CPU runs cooler than the brand B CPU, you still need good heatsink/fan combo. Anyways, P3 and K6 run cooler than any P4, Athlon XP or Athlon 64. I think Northwood and older generations of P4 and Athlon 64 have similar operating temperature, and they run cooler than Athlon XP and P4 Prescott. Athlon XP actually runs cooler than P4 Prescott.

Cool >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Hot

P4 Northwood and older/Athlon 64 -> Athlon XP -> P4 Prescott

Personally, I'd cook with a Pentium Pro or the original Pentium 60 or 66MHz. Good temperature, and more surface area for even cooking. :D

Even old CPU's (486DX 50MHz or DX2/66MHz) can burn you if you touch them after they've been on for 5-10 minutes. A K6 may run cooler than newer CPU's, but it still doesn't change the fact that temperature-wise, it runs quite hot and won't work without a heatsink/fan setup.

It's a known fact that AMD CPU's run hotter than their Intel counterparts.It doesnt make sense to compare the CPU from older generation with the CPU from current generation.


Remember only heat generated will bottleneck the size of the CPU in future.

Prescott heats more because it uses the latest 90 nm fabrication process.When used with the Intel supplied HSF it works without any problems,given that you dont overclock it.


I have a P 4 2.6 to which I have installed a custom made heat sink which does NOT have a fan on it and trust me the maximum temperature I have seen on that machine is 49 degrees celcius.

Well, even an Athlon64 with a proper heatsink-fan unit will work just fine. Load temps of ~45-50C.

Yes, of course, but stock hsf on Intel works fine, and stock hsf's on AMD do not, that's just my expirience. Of course, I went all out on my P4 2.6C and got a Thermalright SP-94 Heatpipe Cooler :)

I overclock this thing to 2.9'ish and it runs just as stable, as at 2.6, may even run *MORE* stable at 2.9

The first time I felt I was cooking with a PC whe I changed my 1Ghz Pentium III to an Athlon XP 1700, I puted the new MoBo and everything in the old case I used with previous configurations, when sometimes the PC stopped working, and the top of the case was enough hot to bake a cake I figured that some were very wrong, of course the minitower case had not enough ventilation and the PSU not enough also, trying different coolers I broke the CPU, so then I ended with a XP 2100. I hate the noise of the coolers since then.
Ciao,

Tired of hackintoshes and went with the real deal.

Well bhairav I was just saying that I am using a heat sink WITHOUT a fan connected to it.Still the maximum temperature I got was 49.I dont want to find out if that is possible with any AMD CPU. :wink:
