I have readed in many places that the Prescott cpu is very very very very very HOT and that with some work, it reach easy very high temperatures.
My questions are :
Under stress conditions (like gaming or others intensive applications) how much is the temp of your cpu in Celsius ???
If is very simple that the cpu goes over the 70 C limit, it will forced down the clock by the bios very often to work at 2/3 the nominal speed.
So my bad thinking is "if I buy a 3.4 Ghz Prescott 1714, it will run every time at 2.27 Ghz real for cause of temperature ??????"
Only you can resolve my problem, is it true in your machine or the temp is above 70 C in every situation ???
Thanks a lot.
