if you got the heatsink installed, it's not gonna fry that fast...ive also tried it and watched in the bios how fast temps rose from 24 room temp...took about 20-30 seconds before it hit 60.
cpu was 1Ghz Athlon.
another thing is to try that without the heatsink at all.. i remember reading an article where they tried that (with some thoroughbred cpu). they recorded this with an heat/infra red camera and the cpu hit over 300 C (!) [the scale didn't go higher] under 10 seconds and they had to stop the process cause the mobo already started melting and they didn't want to burn the whole palce up.
