I saw that Test and it was great.
"Hot Spot - How Modern Processors Cope With Heat Emergencies"
http://www6.tomshardware.com/cpu/01q3/010917/index.html

But why don't u do a test without remove the entire cooler, just stop the fan, to simulate a fan problem.

Because i think noone will remove the cooler when the PC is working, but maybe we can have a fan problem.

Just an idea :)

allready been discussed (some might say to death)
check down the CPU post list.

And yes, this has been discussed many times before, and no matter how much we say, Tom will never redo his test.

The question that first pops to mind is, "Would performing another test teach us anything new?". Hmmm... I wonder about the level of grammatic failure involved in my last sentence (two end punctuations in the same sentence).

At any rate, I can only assume that when a fan stops on the Pentium, its heat will rise quickly, but not as quickly as with a total cooler removal. When the thermal diode detects a temperature above the hardcoded ceiling, the processor is clocked down to cool it off. In Athlon's case, I can only assume that the CPU will heat up quickly, but not as quickly as with a total cooler removal, and the Athlon will die of overheat. Is there any reason to believe the results would be any different (albeit heating would take longer, but all other factors would be the same)?

Nope, it was fine. You can trust me on that, I'm the official THGC English teacher :)

The situation would be the same, except that perhaps the slower rise would give the motherboard/software-based shutdown time to react.
