I just picked up a very nice Micron VL486DX-486 66Mhz desktop. Doing some cleaning and testing I touched the passive heat sink on the CPU and it was very hot. I thought of a case fan but there just isn’t any room so I thought of a cooling fan, but would need some kind of adapter. Looked online and didn’t find any for a socket 2 and looking at the board, couldn’t find a power source on the mother board for one.
I’ve never actually touched a heat sink on an older CPU, I know that it’s subjective, but is really hot to the touch normal?
