Well my overclocked athlon finally crashed. *snif snif*
course it wasnt hardware related...
Microshaft internet exploder went all wierd, wouldnt connect to things and my buttons, all my buttons went blank.
time since last reboot... some 250+ hours over the course of almost 3 weeks. (100% processor load all the time with cure for cancer)
win2k 'hibernate' mode is used exclusively.
do u think using hibernate mode each nite counts when talking about system uptime and "how many hours my pc can run in a row"???
remember that hibernate writes all mem data to a hard drive file & shuts down.
on restart the file is read and the PC is returned to the exact state it was left.
OEMs selling "High End"PCs with integrated video will be forced into Q3tournaments using a TNT2M64!
My friend uses his Athlon 1.4tbird oc'd to 1.5, as basically a server. It runs 24/7 and he has been up for 2 weeks plus. Of course its a bit hot, but rock stable and no glitches..so if this is the AMD experience, it taste pretty damn good! I don't even wanna tell you how much i work my system...
