Guys

i have a strong hunch that we have something fishy going on in here.

These random posts of peoples crashes and then certain people follow up exactly oh it's your AMD processorm or a blown processor stories

I have a strong hunch that we have 1-3 people on here just causing these untrue posts
and anyhow if there computer just blew up
HOW THE HELL ARE THEY ONLINE

....
There has been some rumor that a certain person has another alias but i think thats true but also someone else is along with it..

think about it

It doesn't even have to be your computer... You can get on this board with a friend's computer, or even a public one for that matter, provided you remember you login password...

Really love your peaches wanna shake your tree.

I totally agree.

I think that since this whole Intel vs. AMD crap has been going on this forum has had more than a few members with more than one account.

I wouldn't be surprised if some members actually have conversations with themselves. "I Love Intel" "I love AMD"

Well the only person that would probably have a clue would be Fred cause he can see the host information as the member logs on and when the member posts a message. So he would be the one to ask.

Damn, it sure would be funny if fugger was also wusy, LordChaos and AMDMELTDOWN- LOL

As far as I can tell they all have something in common- ALL the posts I have read are pure 'Merde'.

I think your delusional, I have seen that the problems do exist, and I have built over a thousand computers over the last 3 years. BTW, I'm a refurbisher/upgrader/assembler, and I HAVE had bad experiences with VIA chipsets (that are particular to VIA chipsets only) in certain system configurations. In other configurations the same board worked fine. How do you explain to a customer that what he wants can't be done AFTER he has bought the parts? You end up paying for the parts yourself and hoping you can sell them to somebody else! I don't stock specialty parts!
BTW, I have also had problems with SIS chipsets.

Thanks. That makes 998 votes for and 2 votes against me! The other vote against me was a guy with an SIS chipset. Either 99.8% are idiots or it's just you, ever feel outnumbered?

What problems with Via do you have?
Yes there are some problems with them
but patches and bios updates more likely fix these

Im using via right now

no probs whatsoever

BTW SIS i did have a BIG problem with
performance wise

but what via issues do u have?

btw
you are winning the bigest dumb ass award right now.
p.s. you should not be hasseling people who actually know how to build a computer. while you only post CRAP and go around spreading filth.

I could not use more than 3 PCI devices on some of them without manually configuring resources. I could not get an Adaptec SCSI card and a 3com NIC to configure somultanously (I had to pull one, configure the other, and then install the second). I had driver problems with Detonator 2. All these were easy to fix-then-I could not install certainUSB scanners, I could not install certain SCSI scanners, I could not install some programs because they could not detect certain hardware, and some card installations that worked would latter fail. BSOD in certain games, when accessing certain large files, inability in some cases to get two different memory modules to work simultaneously at the speed of the slower module, unfixable instability with 98 First Edition (hey, I don't upgrade to second edition for free!), buffer underrun errors that did not occur on even older Intel chipset machines (due to stalls by the on-chip IDE controller), self-corrupting files, shut down errors, memory errors, incompatable drivers, inability to use anything from Diamond with Diamonds drivers (had to use the default drivers from chip manufacturers), IRQ sharing problems (inability to run a full system of cards), mouse errors, file curuption when using messaging services (ICQ, AOL, Microsoft), programs that caused file curruption without even being run (load a program, system crashes before it's even done configuring!), etc, etc, etc,

90% of problems fixable, but at extended service times, often requiring reload of OS.

Suicide is painless...........

ppl like you don't give a sh!t, business ppl care about things like data integrity, stability and reliability.

you don't care because all you do is battlezone.

I have only built one VIA machine, my TBird 900 with an Abit KT7-RAID.

It did take me a full day of playing with different drivers to get the system stable. I know this would not have happened with an Intel chipset.

Even when stable, I had problems with the USB bus. It would accept one scan from my scanner, and quite working, requiring a reboot to scan one more picture.

This took another day to solve, and required moving the USB interrupt from 5 to 3. Perhaps the SB Live! conflicted somehow.

Anyway, I have 3 PCI cards, but have heard that having 4 or more can really cause havoc with the VIA chipset.

My biggest concern with owning an AMD TBird was the VIA chipset (not thermal protection). It took some work, but it is (for now) rock solid.

Guess I'll find out when I add a TV Tuner to the system.
