    I'm happy to report that after leaving these (burnK7, and burnMMX) running for about
    30 minutes there were no problems, a slight increase in CPU/system temperature, but
    within safe limits, along with a nice load average.. FYI:

    processor : 0
    vendor_id : AuthenticAMD
    cpu family : 6
    model : 4
    model name : AMD Athlon(tm) Processor
    stepping : 4
    cpu MHz : 1327.702
    cache size : 256 KB
    fdiv_bug : no
    hlt_bug : no
    f00f_bug : no
    coma_bug : no
    fpu : yes
    fpu_exception : yes
    cpuid level : 1
    wp : yes
    flags : fpu vme de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 sep mtrr pge mca cmov pat pse36 mmx fxsr syscall mmxext 3dnowext 3dnow
    bogomips : 2647.65

    note this is the "c" core chip,
    256M DDR RAM,
    PC Chips M830LR motherboard w/ the SiS 735 Chipset,
    (note, my single-chip chipset requires no fan, unlike the VIA chipsets)

    All rather well considering the CPU fan is missing two blades, and only has the little
    pink patch of thermal grease.
