hmm they should have sorted the termal monitoring/diode before releasing them , that could be dangerous to the user cos of fire

some of the old cpus can run fine without heatsinks. But modern cpus, well prohably around 20 seconds before they overheat.

lol, the 600Mhz have thermal detection? I had no idea , But yeah thats no big deal unless you are gaming or stressing it you can run it for about 10 minutes before it gets real hot. Still I wouldn't push that just buy a heat sink the thing. :D
