All I have to say about Athlons is that every day when I get home from work, my room is about 80 degrees Fahrenheit, thanks to the 1.3GHz Athlon system I leave on 24x7x365 for RC5 cracking purposes (along with two dual G4s (1 dual 533MHz, 1 dual 600MHz, 1 single 450MHz G4, 1 400MHz Celeron)). They should make labels that say "AMD Athlon - Strip heaters for geeks".

Are they available in cans?

I have to agree. My 900 warms my room considerbly.

Re: Athlon as heat source, it's funny how things go in cycles. I used to know a guy who talked about having an old dorm-refrigerator-sized CPM box of some sort in his college dorm room. He spoke fondly of how powering up the beast sounded just like an airplane taking off, and how effective it was in keeping his room warm during the winter.

Now, a couple of decades later, you can get all those same benefits for a lower cost in a much smaller form factor.

I have one of these stickers. The guy has a website with all sorts of them.

well in my box, it's not the athlon, but the 300W power supply it needs is what heating up the room

Man, athlons are friggin space heaters, I like my 900 just fine, but damn, I could make toast if I set a piece of bread on my case.

Why is it that people will sell worthless items that the company gives away at trade shows? What is worse is the people who buy it. A classic P.T. Barnum.

Shouldn't this be listed under "FOOD"? Because it's nothing but cheesey. (Budumbump.)

I was just looking at this post and how absolutely carrpy it was and it hit me,,,Do you guys ever stop and consider all of the absolute crap that Drew has to wade through every day? And if this is what makes the page, can you imagine what's laying on the floor? Yikes.
2001-07-09 09:15:57 PM  
fark this shiat. I'll kill myself if that didn't work.

You know, 24/7/365 really doesn't make any sense...24/7/52 or 24/365 make more sense. But, I had hated saying 24/7 since the first time I heard it.

my 1 GHZ doesnt heat up the room that much, but then again I'm in the carribean, so 92/88 temp is normal around dis heaR parts.

Its not lame, If you like AMD get it, if not dont. ANd if your chip is heating your room, your case needs more cooling, dont blame the chip. Hey maybe overcharging but hey, who doesnt these days.
