Could you really trust this setup?
One word, after using one heavily for a number of months, day in and day out, yes.
Ive never had a problem with it (running batch renders at 100% on both cores for about a week), no probs.
I doubt that its been thrown together without testing and thought, and i'm sure that the people that designed the CPU/Socket are a bit more experianced at CPU, and chipset desing than us mere mortals
