Default Keeping Intelís Prescott cool and quiet

Intelís 90nm Pentium 4 processor, codename Prescott, is one of the hottest processors money can buy, despite the die-shrink. To keep it running cool Intel supplies a heatsink which gets the job done in a well ventilated case, but doesnít go about it quietly. But thereís more, besides generating a substantial amount of heat, more than any other Intel desktop processor, Prescott consumes a lot more power as well. This means that the power supply and the power regulating circuitry on the motherboard are operating under a substantially higher load. For example, if your motherboard isnít listed as ĎPrescott compatibleí it might not be able to handle the extra load, possibly causing its power circuitry to fail or get excessively hot shortening its lifespan

Every bit about the Prescott is true; PSU and temps.

My Fortron 350-watt was replaced with a 400-watt after only one month as the thermal protection kicks in from time to time.
