Nah, man I'm not missing the point. Of course you want to keep everything as cool as possible. But the common sense temp of under 60C for C2Ds isn't some arbitrary number. It's because that was the original thermal spec for the first C2Ds. If the B2's had a spec of 70C than that would be the common sense number.

But why would Intel make a revision like that and publish it if it weren't true?

It's pretty clear that each revision allows higher temps:
B2 - 60.1°C
L2 - 61.4°C
G0 - 72°C
M0 - 73.2°C

Interesting hearing that from bosco since he has two 8800s. Why in one of your million systems could you not have a 2900 XT? Lol...


They're all sold out on the egg. Time to start hunting, any leads on who might have some in stock?

Why no DX10? No Vista or a problem with the card?
