Prescott plus XPC equals toaster?

What happens when you slap a Prescott P4 into a Shuttle XPC and try a little overclocking? The guys at Sudhian (thank goodness I'm not in radio) decided to find out. I won't give it all away, but this gives you the general idea:

Here’s where things got dicey. About half way through the testing, is where it happened. POP. HISS. Silence. Immediate shutdown, the system came grounding to a halt. A fresh scent of burning electronics filled the air.
Perhaps those SFF systems aren't ready for Intel's big, new Pentium 4 just yet, huh? Go read the whole thing. (Tip from Perezoso.)
Like what we're doing? Pay what you want to support TR and get nifty extra features.
