My System Specs

Post INQ takes a look at an AMD 4x4 system

http://www.theinquirer.net/default.aspx?article=35535

Nothing to spectacular about the article, but interesting none the less.

One really big problem I see with the whole 4x4 idea is that anyone who wants to use phase change or any other kind of exotic cooling is going to have to have TWO such units. Not very practical.

I think phase-change and practical are mutually exclusive myself. ;)

It's a bit silly in my opinion. What's the TDP rating on the the higher end X2 parts these days? If power consumption is +100w more then you are going to have heat issues with an overclocked system, nevermind the interaction between two overclocked physical processors.

I believe that the new FX 7* series processors will have a TDP above 100W. it's going to be pretty insane. Water cooling is going to be a whole new ball game with two processors and two SLIed video cards.
