Call it bad timing for AMD, or call it bad reception. Either way, it's another good thing gone down the drain for the sake of inter-operability. :(
Sad.... Just got back from scouring the market desperately for an FIC SD-11 motherboard for my AMD Athlon (Thunderbird) 700. :( Finally, I had to give up and give the old SD-11 motherboard in for chip-level repair so they can at least get the fans working. I wonder if there's any other cooling solution that's just as efficient (or better) at a cheap enough price. Any thoughts on that?
