This trend of blaming software on bad or marginal hardware design is getting going the wrong way, and it has to stop!
This trend of blaming software on bad or marginal hardware design is getting going the wrong way, and it has to stop! Remember the talk a bit back about the new ATI Catalyst (3.6? 3.8?) drivers blowing up monitors and video cards?
You should blame VIA for making the worst chipset ever (I know, I used VIA for 3 years)--------------------------------------------------------Keep in mind he is using VIA, of all chipsets.
Quit bashing VIA
and I don't ever remember reading that VIA chips out-and-out die more than their competitor's chips.
rjamorimPlease, get informed before claiming something you obviously have no clue about.
Quote Quit bashing VIA Quoteand I don't ever remember reading that VIA chips out-and-out die more than their competitor's chips.It's not about dying. It's about conflicting with sound cards and outputting weird noises, it's about going nuts when the bus is being used intensively, it's about refusing to recognize all IDE drives... (I have personally seen all these problems in computers using VIA chipsets)
Quit bashing VIA
Is this kind of attitude really necessary?
Perhaps you would be well served by getting some anger management classes.
I don't think the HA community is here for you to vent on.

VipesVIA has around the worst implementation of the PCI bus..lacking many pause commands, that would otherwise make the AthlonXP (example) go more into halt mode and save power/heat)However due to VIA's abd pci implementation this dos not occur as often as it should be.SiS and AMD chipset does not have the problem...

Please be clear, I agree that the person is incorrect on a technical basis. Perhaps something like 'It is generally accepted that software will not cause hardware to fail. Please research your idea before posting a claim like this.'
I for one found your statement to be rude.
Leading by example is important.
I guess you chose the wrong example, smart guy
I have seen you contribute a great deal to these forums. It would be a shame to see that tarnished with an immature attitude. Your posting numbers speak for themselves.
Frankly, I find your questionable use of power tools objectionable. DeWalt power tools are highly over-rated...
