Hi Rudolf,

I know... I did a kind of "test" of this. Running burnP6 with overclock
to 3 GHz and the stock cooler triggered auto shutdown of the CPU in less
than 30 seconds. Now I have a Pentium D820 boxed cooler and the core
goes up to 69 which is still 31 below the critical level.

Regarding the patch - I guess you can add 0x17 soon. This is the new
Penryn core Intel will bring to market in november. Question is only if
there is somebody to test.
