Firstly, 2600 is 2nd gen I believe, which is a different story. Secondly, gaming isn't 
CPU-intensive since it only puts a load on a single core. In gaming my CPU rarely goes above 65, 
but in stress-testing it goes as high as 85C. During "idle" desktop work (email, web browsing, 
simple work in a terminal) the temperatures are in the range of 45-50C. They don't really go 
above 50C since the fans speed at up at this point and keep the temperature in check.
