I have 5 Phenom 9600B (thats the business edition with a B not the BE - its supposedly more stable than the BE) desktops running at the office. I lost two over teh weekend. Werent doing a whole lot - just left on as usual and doing backups. These were stock non overclocked machines under a lease.
Specs - HP Compaq dc5850 Small Form Factor PC :
Do HP motherboards have a problem with Phenom Bs ??? its a 780V chipset and these machines are less than 6 months old. Temps are stable and in the low 50s. The machines turn on fine with fans but blank screens and no POST. Swapping the processor from one of the non dead machines allows the dead one to boot up fine.
Ironically my overclocked phenom desktop at home is still running great.
