I have to ask, why you didn't get an AMD 64?

after watching a review and test on toms hardware web site, and watching a amd bust into
smoke and die, v a p4 intel which survied the
tests, went for the more expensive intel p4
but worth it system, dont get me wrong amd are great chips, run very fast, just felt they lack
a little insurance policy with the thermal shut down......

Because, at this point in time, it's a pointless waste of money with no better use than an office paperweight.

Taken directly from Tom's:


'Here is the update on the stress test:

Monday, Jan. 10 2005: We are done today! Both test systems survived the start into the the new year without problems. After system crashes in the beginning, both systems achieved a flawless running time of 11 days and 22:53 hours for AMD and 17 days and 14:28 hours for Intel. However, we recorded three reboots for Intel and two for AMD.

We can draw the following conclusions from the stress test: Users of socket 775 systems (Intel) should especially focus on a correct installation of the CPU cooler to effectively absorb the enormous power dissipation. We were positively surprised by the AMD system. In contrast to bad experiences in the past, these platforms now can be considered as stable. However, the popular operating system Windows XP contributes considerably to the stability of the system.'
Here's the article (http://www6.tomshardware.com/cpu/20041217/index.html).

Unless you run Windows x64 (CAD already supports it) or an Unix based system, also the Athlon 64s put out an immense amount of 32-bit power, 1600Mhz FSB, oh yeah...

You mean the test from September 17 2001 3 and a half years old, of an old AMD Thunderbird (even older than the XPs) http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif

I did the same and bought a new system AMD 64 3400 with 6800GT card etc.


Glad you got it just in time to have it all ready for SHIII

The AMD64 is a more powerful chip. Mine hasn't burst into flames. I'm assuming he overclocked it on Toms Hardware or was using the old socket AMD 64s, the 939 socket AMDs run cooler.

I have one myself and have never had a crash.

Also be sure to check that 19" TFT for dead pixels. Also, 19" TFTs tend to still suffer from slight ghosting, 17" ones, the right ones, don't.
