BAHHH NO CRASHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!

Shuttle XPC SN27P2 with nForce-MCP55 chipset
GeForce 7100 PCI Express
two OCZ DDR2 5-5-5-15 1GB DDR4 DIMMs
two Athlon X2 4600+
two Maxtor (Seagate) DiamondMax 500GB SATA drives
one DVD burner
Unk rated, generic power supply.


CentOS 5 x64 hangs during verifying packages, or when warm, it will hang during Anaconda start-up.

Ok, so Fedora 6 went on, which is also RHEL5.

Even with fans turned up, if I chew up both CPUs with gzip -9, it will hang within 15 mins.


*sigh*

OCZ memory is aparently no stable in these, but lots of people have stability issues with this box.

My company bought it to replace our hosted webserver.

$1200.

Plus 4 hours of Gary's time.

Plus 9 hours of my time.

I think it would have been better to buy server grade system. I'm fond of the Dell Power Edge line for its pricepoint and reliability.
