It dont matter if its an AMD64, P4, or a LGA775. They will all develope heat in such cases. Besides Martin, AMD cpu's dont have heat issues. So i have no clue where that came from. All the XP's and Semprons run perfectly cool. The AMD64's are the most hot. But they dont run HOT. Intels LGA775 have some real heat problems. Even the top 478 have too.
Now in a case as that DMo, there will be BIG heat problems. That review says it has a P4. Yeah well that really tells alot. If its a 3.0ghz 478+, its cpu will be IDLE'ing at around 48 degrees celcius. If they were to put something modern in it, which i wonder why they dident : / Like a LGA775 or a AMD64, it going to run alot hotter.
This case has NO room for any kind of useful cooling.. The smaller it is, the worse it is. Hardware produces heat obviously, the bigger the case the more room the heat can spread apart, without becoming dense. Which would result in a completely hot system. But if you have somthing as small as that, heat will instantly conduct back into the hardware, where it was originally released. Theres absolutely no room for your system to breath.
