my celeron was overheating badly, like 70 degrees celcius for the CPU, so i opened up the case, bought a cheap $20 vaccuum and spray can from Wal-Mart, and my system is running very cool, at 23 degrees celcius

I'm not 100% sure if AMD's overheat easily, my parent's PC is very cool, and its never cleaned out for dust.

K8 CPU's run quite cool, my Sempron doesn't go above 32°C, and that's only when it is at 100% load all night (like when running Folding@home)

Is it AMD's or Intel's that can withstand overheating the most? Like over 50 degrees celcius.

the prescott core has a remarkable tolerance for heat. the problem is that performance degrades with heat although it does save the cpu

doesnt really matter, the high priced stuff you buy today is going to be outdated tomorrow.

You kinda have to know a little about computers just to know of AMD, whereas you're practically born knowing about Intel as the leading brand.

I know i'm a bit late but its so true
when i was ike a little kid (im still onlt a teen) i thought intel was the best a argued that fact but really i knew nothing
now i no more about pcs and how to build them and i choose AMD every time. I dont have anything against people who choose AMD i just think that they often don't know that much about pc's
