My first "Quiet" solution ran verry hot..
In fact the cpu was in the 80's and I didnt realise it till I got MBM5 and
trashed ASUSProbe.

I think if your under 60 then your good, if your under 50 then that's pretty
good but I would bet It's not quiet..
If your 60 - 70 then it's still not going to kill the processor (shorten
lifespan no doubt)..
If your 70 - 80 then I guess it might be okay (I never got errors)
If your above 80 then It's def really really bad heh
If your above 90 then you must be using a prescott

Want good, quiet, and cheap? TR2-M1, about $10. Want expensive, maybe not
so quiet, but maybe the best, Thermalright with a highspeed fan, Maybe
$50. In the end, either will work much better than the stock cooler.
There's probably more than 100 coolers for the K7 line, and tons of
comparisons online. These 2 I consider the best (or close to it) at both
ends of the price ranges.
