I will have to re-read the Anandtech review, but I believe they mentioned that the problem manifested itself in overclocked chips just as Naga has said.

As Naga already suggested, you should get yourself a highend motherboard, and an x2 4000 brisbane or something of the like until the bugs are ironed out of the Phenom's. Once the bugs are corrected, sell the x2, and get the Phenom. This is what I am doing with my new build. I got a nice motherboard, and an E6750, and once Penryn's are at a reasonable price, I can upgrade.

Rushing through a build is the best way to find yourself in trouble of some sort or another.
well...........that is a good point. If i go that route, then i could sell my friend the 4000+ or so to him for cheaper when the higher-end Phenoms come out. He wants to build himself a computer too under $800. I guess im gonna have to go with what u guy suggest. I totally agree with u, because then i can save money n get a high-end Phenom later. A nice strategy indeed!

Alright u guys have convinced me. However, i suggested my friend to get this processor, so ill give him a call n ask if i can sell it to him for less when the high-end Phenoms come out.

AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ Brisbane 2.6GHz - Black Edition - AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ Brisbane 2.6GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM2 65W Black Edition Processor - Retail

i would need a heatsink n better thermal compound too so ill go with what i wanted before:

ARCTIC COOLING MX-2 Thermal Compound - ARCTIC COOLING MX-2 Thermal Compound - Retail

Tuniq Tower 120 P4 & K8 CPU Cooler - Tuniq Tower 120 P4 & K8 CPU Cooler - Retail


ZALMAN CNPS9700 LED 110mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler - ZALMAN CNPS9700 LED 110mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler - Retail

which heatsink should i go with?


if i go with the Tuniq, then the total price, or around the total price, comes to $1153.
