Heat - AMD 4750 -vs- 8790Two different machines and two different setups.
Now for those AMD lovers, I heard that the AMD was a lot cooler than the Intel P4's. That should be the case in normal (non-tasking) operations; however, simply isn't so for extreem applications.
The critical temperatures and how the temps are monitored on these configurations is different.
The 8790 may be cooler (47C) than the 4750, however, the external temperatures may (or may not) be. By external temperatures, I mean, the temperature of the Keyboard, left hand side palm rests, the exhaust, the DVD drive, the x-in-1 readers, and the like. All of these attributes may be "cooler"; however, the temperatures reported could be higher.
It's too bad that someone with both machines couldn't let everyone know what the "exteral temperatures" are - or at least the difference on how they feel.
