Re: [vox-tech] Safe to run 486dx2 w/o fan?

Hash: SHA1

"The Intel 486DX2® microprocessor is specified for operation when Tc (The 
Case Temperature) is within range of 0 degrees C to 85 Degrees C. Tc may be 
measured in any environment to determine whether the Intel486DX2 
microprocessor is within specified operating range. The case temperature 
should be measured at the center of the top surface opposite the pins."
