that's not entirely true. I forgot to plug the cpu fan in before on an xp2500+ and the bios shut down when the cpu overheated. cpu overheat protection is a standard feature of motherboards for many years. some athlon motherboard might not have it, but from what I remember most of the older processor run much cooler so a heatsink would be enough to protect it from complete failure. you would probably see some lockups or instability that would hint that something is wrong.

nope 64 amd, but if the computer is in the middle of a game with high temps and fan stops it probably will cook :S but since I have the stock fan my warrantyu will cover it

Because people hate searching.
Best ram guide.
Different cpu types.
Good video card guide
