just to bring light to all the posts about 3ghz prescott running so hot. i think its a bunch of bull so i got one and hammered it with sandra. 56C is all i was able to hit with stock hs/f, 1 stick of kingston hyper-x ddr 400, and intel d865perll motherboard. so if your prescott is running at 70C... put the heatsink back on correctly.

would there be much difference between a 3.2ghz prescott and a 3.0 ghz? mine is overheating like [-peep-] so i took it back to the store to be fixed.
