How can you “burn out at work”

Having dealt with processor cooling issues, we can now easily figure out the question of why Duron processors burn up if they are turned on without a heatsink.

Generally speaking, the question is somewhat strange. For a long time, everyone has been searching for effective radiators, and some still have the idea to try – or maybe the processor will work without a radiator? Continue reading

Stages of a Long Way: Mass Intel and AMD Processors in 2001

Intel
Celeron is finally moving to the 100 MHz system bus. On January 3, the first CPU of this lineup came out – the 800-MHz version (multiplication factor – 8x). In May, we should wait for the second – Celeron 850, and in August for the third – Celeron 900. In September-October, Intel intends to take the 1 GHz line for cheap processors and hopes to start mass production of the Celeron model with a frequency of 1 GHz (multiplication factor – 10x) .

I love the heat at the beginning of the year!

Finally, winter has come. The time has come when it is necessary to seriously think about cooling computers. In magazines, the topic of computer cooling is raised, as a rule, every spring. The logic is simple: users get hot, and they begin to think primarily not about themselves, but about their best friend. But in fact, the need for cooling the computer is weakly dependent on the time of year. Continue reading
