Ok, my turn. I shall use logic and common knowledge.
Mr. Dale, Incase you haven't noticed...this isn't the media...you're not reading the newspaper nor are you listening to the news. You're on a computer/techonology related forum.....now that you know where you are....I shall continue.
It's a well known fact, and things like this happen all the time. It sounds completely logical, and lines up with all the other hardcore facts, and personal experience that I and many others have had with Intel's CPUs. Intel must have gotten you at a young age.
If Intel's CPUs were truly better than AMD's then heck yea I would go for Intel and not AMD, but being completely ignorant and siding with one company forever is completely ignorant, stupid, and foolish. A year ago I use to be a hardcore ATI fan, but now I have broadened my horizon, and I now have a PNY Verto Geforce FX5200 Ultra 128mb AGP 8x video card in my computer...a year ago...that would've never happened, and I have absolutely NO complaints about this card.....it works perfectly! Best bang for the buck imo.
I hate making long posts, so I'm gonna keep this short and with minimum name calling.
You should stop being a ignorant, little child who thinks that anything against his #1 company is a lie. I've dealt with many people like you(unfortunately), and I don't take any crap from them. Do the math....think on your own for once.....read reviews....get some personal experience.....basically...what I'm saying is...As a newb you have no right to accuse other people of lieing about something that is perfectly logical, and if you don't consider yourself a newb....then you should really think about seeing a shrink......as soon as you possibly can. Hopefully one day...you'll wake up and see the light.
Edit: Also, from what I'm hearing....P4s do run cooler than the Athlon 64s, and I'm sure if you used the same crappy goo on a Athlon 64 as you did on that P4 that the tempature would go up just as much.
