A Prescott, heh?

Everything is compatible, however the URL for the Memory doesn't seem to be working properly.

P.S.: Welcome to the Tech-Forums!

Prescott is one of Intel's new cores which is built for supporting higher frequencies. They get hot... And I mean hot.

Anything i can do to prevent damage then? I presume they are supplied with a heatsink/fan?

They have a 3yr warranty so if damage is caused from overheating they should be covered

Whatever method they have for cooling (stock) will be sufficient. However, if you plan on overclocking - I'd strongly recommend looking into something much stronger.

I've got a prescott core...never gets hotter than like 45 C. (at least I think that's about how hot it ever gets)

If I(we) were to overclock, what would be a good fan/heatsink for it then?
