4 out of 5 eggsRunning two

Pros: Running two of these on an
ASUS board..
They have been running 24/7
the whole time....
2135 floating point MIPS (Whetstone) per CPU
3583 integer MIPS (Dhrystone) per CPU
Very easy install

Cons: One of the heatsink fans vibrates the whole server.
(That way out of the Box.)
The packing of the parts was poor.
They were set right on the bottom of the box and had the
"Peanuts" just dumped on them.
(No packing underneath the parts) Box beat up badly by UPS too.
Going with Fedex from now on.
