I've got it set so that the system will shut down if CPU temp gets above
50 C. Right now I'm trying kernel 2.4.19 with pre-empt. I've been
running 3 threads of prime95 for about 45 minutes now with no problems,
though each thread does not take more than 8% of the cpu with this
kernel (though my continuous kernel compile takes 33%). XMMS still
complains once in a while about not being able to access the sound card,
but mp3blaster made no such complaints (XMMS bug, or wierd glitch? It is
pretty easy to reproduce under load). I tried running memtest86, but
never got any problems.
