Watch this video where they remove the CPU cooler while running a game. CPU without Cooler
Overclocking with Intel is just not scary anymore , for scary you need AMD
this video is old (computer technology changes fast so..). anyone remember pentium III times.. i still do now AMD CPUs have better protection
Are you sure about that? I'll admit I haven't used AMD processors in quite some time, but I seem to recall that this wasn't the case. Back then (within past 3 years) if your processor fan failed on an AMD system the computer would continue to run until the processor fried. An Intel system would shut itself off rather than burning up.
Is this still the case now?
