-- The Test

   This is how I ran the tests, I ran the chips and recorded the idle temperatures and then recorded the temperatures at full load.  Full load meaning having Prime95, RC5 and Quake 3 running at the same time.  After this was recorded, it was then tested to its max.  I have run this chip all the way to 150FSB just fine as a test, so I am sure it can tolerate this high bus speed.   

   First up for the test is the retail heatsink provided by Intel. Not exactly the biggest thing you can find out there:

Intel Retail Heatsink

    Now I have to say that even though the the maximum temperature that can be tolerated by the chip is actually very high according to Intel, I'm sure none of us would like that to wear down the life of our prized investments.  Here are the temperatures that I got from the test:

550e(100FSB) IDLE 550e(100FSB)Full Load Max Speed
110 F/ 43 C 124 F / 51 C 140FSB/770mhz(1.70v)
