I fired up an old computer that I built many years ago. I installed Linux Mint 17.2 XFCE 32bit. The processor is a P4 2.6ghz with stock cooler. I can't remember what version. I vaguely remember that it ran hot. Today the bios temp was about 73c. Seems toasty to me but ran well and long enough. What is the temp range of these processors? ps...I do plan to reset cmos I might have some settings cranked up that might possibly heat things up. pss....I got a 3.2ghz on they way. he he he.
