I've read online a test someone has done with this configuration and my fears are right I think. It said on idle the processor was at high 50's low 60's degrees and on their heavy load test it went to 100 degrees! It said the processor may cope at these temperature but to be honest I don't want something hot enough that I could fry eggs on it in my room! Portability is very important for me so I think I'm gonna move away from the i7, I really don't want water cooling as well as that could be a solution as they are expensive and I imagine easy to get wrong. The processor I was considering before was the intel quad 8200. Would it be possible to cool a Quad 8200 in a thermaltake Lanbox with the right motherboard?
