the white plastic socket on 423/370/478 boards, what is the material made of?

 

i feel sure intel spec'd the composition for heat reasons

 

i have been trying to find out what the material can take in terms of heat, have heard rumors of the prescott cpu's being able to run hot enough to melt the socket material underneath..........

well, i asked because i have hit 178 degrees fahrenheit with my cpu, and i am thinking the material was spec'd years ago before any even anticipated prescott temps, in my mind making it possible that current cpu's could possibly be pushing the thermal limits of whatever it is
