    A modern AMD wouldn't die either - it would shut down/throttle too.

    MSI P55-GD80, i5 750

    Please try it on your PC and post a video of the result.
    Ta.

    (Or maybe post a link supporting your statement... I'm genuinely interested in knowing if it is true.)

    Builder’s Guide for AMD Athlon 64 Processor-Based Desktops and Workstations
    "Warning: Do not apply voltage until the heatsink is fully installed. If voltage is applied before the heatsink is fully installed, the processor will overheat and failure will result. Read through the entire installation instructions completely to make sure you understand them before you begin."

    I much prefer AMD to Intel. But when it comes to thermal management Intel kicks AMD's ass. The worst thing is that AMD didn't always properly warn buyers of the problem. It used to be correct procedure to test a new mobo/CPU without a heatsink before final assembly. I always read documentation, so never suffered as a result, but I pity (some of) the people who killed their CPUs by rushing in.

    rajagra - most motherboards handle thermal management on AMD kit. Of course... that doesn't always mean it works as it should.

    I have actually swiched a PC running an Athlon XP on with the heat sink fan unplugged - the PC ran fine for several minutes until I finally thought "hey did i plug the fan into the header?" & switched it off.

    Let me see now - AMD processors run cooler than Intel Prescotts, AMD64 has Cool'n'Quiet on the desktop - what do Intel have?

    LOL, haven't we all! But that's *completely* different to having no heatsink.

    Intel have temperature sensors that work well enough to reduce power quickly enough to prevent damage - even if the heatsink has fallen off.

    AMD are better than Intel in many ways, but give Intel credit where it's due - they got ONE thing right.

    So do AMD these days - but no I'm not willing to test it (unless you are willing to pay for the consequences)
