3.8GHZ P4 (model 570J) - Does it need a cooling fan??

I have a Dell optiplex GX280 that has a 3.0GHZ intel P4. The heat sink
in this GX280 is a fanless design. Just one big aluminum radiator.

I want to upgrade my CPU to a 3.8GHZ P4 (model 570J).
The "J" revision of the intel P4 is supposed to have reduced
heat emissions. I am wondering if I can just use the Dell
CPU heat sink that is in my computer now with this new
processor of whether I need to get an upgraded CPU heat sink
that includes a fan??? Will a new 3.8GHZ intel P4 fry itself if
I try to use it with the Dell fanless CPU Heat sink built into the
computer?

Thanks

Never use a Pentium without a 3.4Ghz and above rated fan, I gurantee Smelting and burning parts within 3 Minutes or Less if you are able to make it run in the first place. It's almost as strict as the 10 Commandments but for Intel Computers.

If you'd like to smell what burning silicon smells like then by all means, go right ahead.

I assume that this is one of those Dell deisgns that has the large fan with a fan shroud? I did find an GX280 with a 3.8GHz P4, so this should be possible. If you have the large fan w/ shroud, and want to try this, I say go for it. Make sure you use good thermal paste and you might want to try upgrading the fan. Buy a fan with HIGH CFMs from newegg.

I do question the need for a new CPU. What do you think the extra 800MHz will get you?
