I'd say it's more likely that bad software might expose a flaw in a system, such as cooling that was never going to work adequately when the CPU was running at full steam, than it actually be able to cook it. It's probably a fair bet that there's a lot of CPU coolers that are just inadequate. -- Test running FC6 & FC5, and still using FC4. I delete all private mail, unseen. I read from the list.
