I'm not sure about that. The P-II notebooks were running almost as
long as the P-MMX. And I've heard that my K6-2 runs hot. I don't
know how to check though, other than by opening up the case. And NT
idles the processor, so I'd have to run a crappier OS (98?) to really
test that way. Is there a better way to check on the proc temp?
