When AMD rolled out the first 2200+ CPUs right after their die shrink, those things ran hotter than blazes. When nVidia did their GeForce die shrink they were very toasty and required that wierd HSF that became affectionately known as the "dustbuster."

It seems these die shrinks are tricky. Maybe Intel will have to do what AMD did after their 2200+ T'bred die shrink: Go back to the drawing boards and release a 2200+B (or in Intels case a Prescott F?)
