according to sharikou's analysis, "The Core Duo spews 53 watts, but the fan is designed for 31 watts only, the user was running some hefty apps in preparation for the conference, causing the CPU to overheat, however, somehow the thermal throttling logic failed, the CPU exploded, causing secondary explosion in the battery. "

any thoughts?

It was most likely the battery. Shakirou insists that the processor got up to a thousand degrees celcius and caused a chain reaction and made it explode. Don't believe me? Read the comments.

I haven't read anything about this, so all I know is from your note. However, I have a Dell Latitude D820 that has a Core Duo 2 GHz processor. I find that it runs very cool. I have not been able to get the CPU fan to come on even when encoding videos with AutoGK. I have a desktop with an Intel 3.06 MHz Northwood and 2G of ram. The Core Duo out paces that system too; and stays cool.

I suspect he spilled his beer in it! :)

Ohhhhh what else could we have expected from the ultimate AMD fanatic of all time. I don't need to read the comment to believe you....

Li ion batteries can cause gaseous H2 to spew forth, if an ignition source is anywhere close you will get some really cool "bangs".

Jack Oh, you didn't get what I said, I should have been more clear anyway. What he said was that the processor EXPLODED.

Turion X2 eat more power than Core. Sharikou see only his truth.

Dell recalls batteries because overhating and danger of explosion.

Whats the problem: Sharikou don't read only drink and speak.

basically, you should never take sharihou's blog seriously. he may present his fact somewhat legitimately, but in the end he's just a bleeding heart AMD fan that will say anything he can that's bad about intel.

it was pretty much unanimous that it was the battery that caused the explosion:
