I guess we can blame all motherboards, no one can handle the 300watts spewed by the INTEL dual core chip. No wonder INTEL does not have dual core server chip until 2006(who know if they will have it then)...
Gigabyte Ga-8n-sli Royal (NForce4) - rebooted three times. The motherboard got hosed when they tried to update to a beta BIOS that was supposed to reduce Northbridge temperatures.
Epox Ep-5nva+sli (NForce4) - smelled smoke when turned on. Turned itself off while still in BIOS. Manual specifically states that it supports "Pentium D dual core processor from 3 GHz and above." That's their problem. An 840EE is not a Pentium D, it apparently takes even more power! They report that the voltage regulators probably burned up. Also notice the weirdness that the Epox board won't work with 2.8 GHz Pentium D's.
Asus P5nd2-sli (NForce4) - this one rebooted relatively soon also, so they gave up on it, and on NForce4, without trying any BIOS update.
Intel D955XBK #1 (Intel 955X chipset) -- simply did not work. Intel-based boards don't support NVidia SLI properly, so they redefined the stress test to use only one 6800. It's not clear whether they actually removed the 2nd PCIe board from the AMD system.
Intel D955XBK #2 (Intel 955X chipset) -- did not work either.
Asus P5WD2 Premium with 955X chipset -- currently running, I guess, the 6th motherboard tried!
WHOOPS, the Intel system did reboot once and has only been running 3H, 35M.
