    Default Wanted - HOT AM2/AM2+ CPU

    I'm gathering pieces to build a torture rack for cooling setups and I need a hot processor, the hotter the better. The board I'm using is AM2/AM2+. The age or speed don't matter at all, just the rated TDP. 125+ watts would be best but if you have something you're not using, even if it's less, send me a PM.

    Thanks!!

    Consider overvolting any CPU, or buying a pentium 4 + lga775 mobo on ebay?

    I hadn't thought of overvolting to be honest, thanks!

    They are getting cheaper, you're right, but I don't need clock speed, L3 cache, etc etc on this thing, just HEAT, and I hate to pay for what I don't need. I'm cheap like that.

    This sounds perfect

    Just need to force it into the AMD socket and make your own memory controller
