I have so far returned two MSI Athlon64 boards, and got a very nice Epox
The first one had so many problems I wouldn't know where to start, and
the second had a serious memory clocking issue. It worked at DDR333,
and failed at DDR400 even though the memory was tested fine as DDR400 in
I do have two Athlon(32) MSI boards that I like a lot, but the Athlon64
one didn't fill me with confidence.
I literally put together the new one last night with the Epox S939
board, A64 3000, and 2x512Mb RAM and it is very nice.
All parts did come from Komplett, I just didn't like any of their
available bundles, although this one looks nice:

Subject: [ILUG] Advice much appreciated.
I am looking for a new box (who isn't?) to run some number crunching
on. I was thinking of getting the following bundle :
I have searched high and low online (Dell/Distributors/Marx etc) for a
better deal and cannot find one. I just need the box.
My query goes out to people using a system similar to the above. How
have they found it? Any issues? I plan to run FC364-bit initially but
may drop back to 32-bit if i hit problems. I am open to other distros
where people have had good experiences with 64bit. I choose this
bundle as it is cheaper than most P4 w/HT on the market.
So any thoughts would be appreciated,
