Last year I bought a Pentium 4 computer with a 1700 mhz processor. In addition to the fan on the processor, it also had a fan mounted on the side panel.
I just bought another Pentium 4 computer with a 2400 mhz processor. This computer does NOT have the extra fan mounted on the side panel.
Question--was the fan on the first computer overkill, and not really needed ? Should I add a fan on my new computer ? Thank you.
