Fuck AMD. Fuck AMD hard. Fuck AMD deciding to constantly screw with us, calling a socket the same thing (AM2, AM3, S1, S1G2, etc), with the same pin configuration but different chip compatibility. Seriously. Fuck that shit.
Just spent half an hour tearing apart 2 laptops to try swapping their CPUs because the HP laptop has WAY TOO HOT a CPU for its poor thermal system to manage... absolutely piss-poor heatpipe design causes the CPU to get up to 80-85 C under load, fan roaring full blast but pumping out barely-warm air. Got a laptop with a significantly "cooler" CPU, a Socket 1 (S1G1) chip, TK-55, that would work fine in it.
I swap CPUs, screw the heatsink down, and power on the laptop with the S1G2 (RM-72) in it. brrrrruuuuuguhhhhh... it just kinda acts like I stuck a screwdriver in a power outlet. Turns on, powers off. Turns on again, power/charge/AC lights all light dimly... yank the battery to turn it off again.
WTF, AMD? If the fucking chip isn't compatible then why the fuck does it fit in the socket? No, scratch that. WTF, AMD? Why the fuck would you make a chip so stupidly hot that it can't even keep itself cool? Why can AMD never get cooling right?
I hate AMD.
