If you are lucky: the CPU switches off the system before any damage is
done. If you are not so lucky, the CPU will die. If you have bad luck,
it will damage the motherboard, too.

That obviously depends on the fan.

I don't get the question. But what you need to know is: do not remove
fans from CPUs unless you really know what you are doing (or if you
don't care about the hardware).

I would start by googling for "passive cooling p3 slot" or something to
that effect.

I have never been happier than I am now; a fact which depresses me
