What’s the hottest you’ve ever seen a CPU running at?
This was an Athlon XP 1700+ in a case so old it still had a turbo button on the front. The owner complained of occasional random shut downs.
Tomorrow I move the guts to a case featuring a decent-sized fan grill *within* a cubic foot of the heat sink.
Edit: It dropped to 68 in the new case, with a 90mm fan nearby. Almost a drop of forty degrees.
