I remember reading something about Pentium having a requirement for keeping the new Core Duo cool.
Possibly an tube from the side panel to the cpu fan.
But I haven't been able to find anything on the net about it.
Can somebody please point me in the right direction?
Thanks.
J.

Well, I know what you are talking about the tube, it basically makes the CPU fan blow the hot air right out of the computer through the side instead of letting the air wander out over other components. I'm more of a fan of putting a case fan in instead, it does the same thing, but more effectively (I think.) And the "tube" (I don't know what they're actually called) usually comes with the case.

They are called heat/air ducts and they arent entirely neccesary but they can help although they almost always have a fan on there own or mounting holes for mounting another fan.

Pentium and core 2 are both brands of CPU from intel and have very different heat outputs, core 2s arent as hot as pentiums were but they use the same coolers.
