I have, and I am sick of people saying they aren't going to buy AMD anymore - JUST BECAUSE OF THIS ONE TEST! Makes me LOL, it really does.

I explained why in another thread, I think this topic has been covered several times already.

Does this mean that AMD processors run hotter than Pentiums?

actually I have always had doubts about buying an amd processor after I got my brand new 500mhz k6-3 and had it go up in smoke after 2 minutes of running, and NO it wasn't overclocked. I have nothing against amd, I have a 400mhz k6-2 that I have had for about 2 years and never had a problem with

Not necessarily. This test was just to show that they don't have any kind of heat protection so when the heatsink and fan come of they burn out whereas the Intels stayed cool enough to not be wrecked.

I don't know If I have asked this before, but what programs does everyone use to measure the temp of their CPU?

AMD chips have historically run hotter than the Intel chips. Since they aren't quite as efficient in their power use, they suck a bit more power. You run power through something and it will translate to heat based on the conversion efficiency of what you're running through. Put a fan on an AMD (or two) and no big deal.
