I remember years ago there were a few people who owned the quad fx, yet no one ever posts anything about them. the dual socket was a great idea with bad execution, they were noisy,ran hot,and required a 1000 watt psu . Funny thing though, if amd were to bring out a similar system today, it would work out great, the have quads that run at 75 watts, a 6 cores that run at 115 watts, those would be awesome systems.

Actually, there are a good many of them at XtremeSystems Forums and 2CPU.

The last I saw (maybe a year ago) folks were running B3 Barcelonas in them - I don't know about Shanghai or Istanbul.

Particle started a thread at XS this week about a Super '2' socket 1207 that he hopes to mod for Istanbul with a new chip from BIOSMAN. If it will work on that mobo a mod should also work for the Asus L1N64-SLI WS.

Well, AMD promissed it would have a quad-core updrade for it, so I'm sure they're all just.... waiting?

Talk about taking it in the rear; that's what happened to people who went Quad FX.

But in the famous words of BaronMatrix, "I don't get mad, I get QuadFX"

QuadFX was nothing more than a knee-jerk reaction to "OMG, Intel has quad-core and we won't have anything ready for another year... CRAP!"

IIRC Thunderpants is much more recent - I don't recall seeing any of his AMD4Life posts back when JJ, Ninja, Cap'n April, BM et al were firing bazookas at each other. But then again I've been known to be wrong the odd occasion or two :D .

He's got an old HDD there that's for sure. I don't think I agree with his statement on the "worth" of K8 though. I sold my San Diego last year, if not the year before, for $32 :lol:

@ the kitteh, if that were a 57fx, youd have gotten more than 32 for it

Really? I guess he posts so infrequently that it's easy to miss his drive-by postings. BM, when he hung out here, would post several times a day on average, not once a quarter :) .

He never had a QuadFX. He actually just got a Phenom II 940BE unit.

Thunder used to post very frequently back in 04 timeframe

I think Thunderman is Sharikou, and I don't think he's for real. He just posts for people's reactions.

I agree with TC. If he was really a fanboy he would do what enigma does and post more than just the OP, but troll in other threads too.
