The disaster mentioned above shall never repeat. We need a testing 
procedure which ensures that a board does not overheat.

Mprime (Linux variant of Prime95) should be a nice CPU head generator. 
Together with reading out the K8 internal temperature every 20 seconds, 
running Mprime for half an hour should definitely detect CPU overheating
