why are intel chips still hotter
First off, this is just what I'm hearing, as always with the internet, it may be idiots talking. It used to be intel chips were hotter because they operate at higher frequencies and sometimes eat up more voltage.
Now with conroe, stock operating frequencies are in the same ball park and voltage should be lower, SO why in the heck are so many people reporting it to be hot??? Or at least hotter in proportion.
