Subject: Heat : Intel vs. AMD

OK, so we all now how AMD lays the smack down to Intel anymore when it comes to raw performance, but are there areas where Intel is better than AMD? You better believe it, and an important one at that! Ever wonder what would happen to your CPU if your fan somehow became detached and you powered up without noticing? Very bad things happen, as is shown in this report over at Tom's Hardware! Definately makes you want to ensure you have a quality clipping mechanism (or 4 hole mount like those of us with Swiftech MC462 or Alpha Pal8045 heatsinks) on your heatsink, if possible, the type that have the 3 hole clips per side. For those of you with DivX ;) decoding, there's a movie you can download to view the destruction!
