I've got an old notebook, that I'm using (not only)
for rc5des. There is no real problem, but it seems,
that the fan isn't built for running 24/7. Right now
it's getting louder and louder.

As long as the fan is able to cool the cpu enough
for running with 100% all the time, there is AFAIK
no problem.
But because of the limited space in a notebook, it's
not that easy to keep things cool (the pcmcia-card,
that is right next to the cpu, is getting _very_
hot). All other components doesn't have any problem
keep running.
