Default AMD stability/compatibility issues

To all AMD processor users and fans;

i'd like to know some of the stability and compatibility issues that you've encountered with amd processors.

i know that most of you out there are amd users so i was wondering if you guys can give me a run though of its operating flaws(if there's any) based on your experience.

i'm an intel user and i want to broaden my horizons.

any input would be appreciated...

I have an AMD Athlon 1.4 and so far it hasn't given any problems, thankfully.

I think you will find that the only problems ANYONE will complain about with amd is the heat. As long as you use a nice aftermarket HSF that will not be an issue.

No problems on an Athlon XP 2000+ here. Just use a good 3rd party heatsink/fan, tiny bit of thermal goo (AS3), and install it carefully, and you're good to go.

Just don't let it get too hot, otherwise you'll end up with stability issues and even a crisp, fried processor core.

I see,....so if i'm planning to build an athlon based system Abit would be a good choice for a mobo,...what other mobos can i pair athlon with?

I presume kingston would be a great rams with athlon, right?
