Usually the processor is the last thing to go.

One small thing: these CPU's seem to run relatively hot. Do I need to take any precautions or make any adjustments to prevent another disaster? I ask because something caused the transistors to cook. I'm trying to find out what caused thatso that I can avoid it from happening again. The repairs aren't so bad for me - it's the downtime and chaos that kills my production. what would you suggest? I really value your opinion on this.

XP Home has no issues with dual-core processors either; they show up as two processors but in reality it's one processor with two cores on it.
As to the hotness of CPUs, it depends what you've using. Early Pentium 4's (particularly Pentium D's) do run hot. Modern Core 2 Duo's and AMDs are so cool now the ambient temperature is no more than about 7 degrees above room temperature.
As to what could have blown the be-jesus out of the system, typically power supplies do this.
