Icrontic has a good article up on temperature. What they say is very true it's
a good read
It seems that every overclocker today is worried about temperatures today.
Go to half a dozen or so overclocking sites, and the most common topic discussed
will be heatsink fans, blowholes, cases, RAM heat spreaders, etc. Is that really
necessary? I mean does all this worry about temperatures really amount to something?
Or is it all a bunch of hot air (sorry couldn't resist)..... Ironically, there
is very little scientific information released on this subject, even at the
so called "expert" overclocking sites. In this article, we will try
to explore the affects of temperature on hard drives and CPUs, as well as try
to offer a little theory behind the relationship between temperature and reliability.
