Nah. Intel CPU's don't burn up, only AMDs do. Intel has built in temp sensors and will automatically slow the CPU until temps drop back to operating range. BTW, this won't happen until around 95C. You can try it yourself. Unplug the fan on your HSF and watch the temps steadily rise. When it reaches a certain point, it will slow itself down. They call it thermal throttling and it's built into every P4 including Prescott.
