The information about the US Government throwing the Woodcrest solution 
out was 'reported' by the Inquirer. :D Perhaps IBM boxes...they also 
posted another interesting bit about Woodcrest and Intel 965 
motherboards having problems with raid5...kind of like how there is bad 
mixing if you use ext3 + 3ware in RAID5 mode maybe. I am afraid that is 
all I can give you on this.

The Korean portal one can be found below but it is entirely in korean.


Something about overheating and FB-DIMM problems which was only 
encountered after the thing went live.

How close to live are your benchmarks?
