...I've had nothing but problems. I had two +1700s, a SCSI setup, two copper HSF combos (Thermalwright+Globalwin), 512 megs of reg Infineon, all in a SuperMicro tower, and nothing but big friggin' headaches! It never liked the dual setup, as when I would remove one CPU (either one), it would run much more stable, it ruined my Jazz discs, my SCSI Plextor burner never run at full speed, and so on.
I ended up selling the one CPU to a friend, who now hates me since it now won't run at more than 1100 Mhz, and the one I kept died too (my fault, I admit)!
The T-bird I had previously, never run reliably either, even at rated speed. Not to mention the 2 cracked cores from "AMD recommended" HSFs!
In contrast my Duron was a rock of stability, and it still runs fine to this day in a relative's comp.
My P4 is a 1.6 overclocked to 2.0 Mhz, never gave me any problems untill I tried to run the FSB to 125+. I'm pretty well content with that untill I see what AMD will have to offer past the Palomino, and if they ever install a heat spreader on their chips. I'll never buy another AMD chip with the core exposed, period!
