AMD in servers
Recently I have thought of using AMD Athlon CPU's for my future servers. But I am kind of reluctant to switch from P4 1.7Ghz over to AMD Athlon. I am worried about heat problems and it's stability in a 1U case. But other than that, I have few AMD machines here and I have been happy with them since day one. I also have few Intel machines that I am not overall happy with because of lockups and slowness. I am really considering using AMD chips for my new servers however I would like your opinions first. Also, would using the silicone compound help cool the chip down or no? What would you recommend and what are your experiences with AMD chips in a 1U case or a server?
How does AMD chips compare to Intel chips in a server?
I have been a AMD fan for a long time but I have never use them in a server.
