I could care less about AMD or Intel fan-boys...these kinds of idiotic flame-wars have been and will be around forever. I have machines with both brands of CPU. But I will say this...this has definitely made me re-think buying any more AMD. Not the video itself (because those can be doctored/biased/whatever), but more because of the sheer stupidity of the pro-AMD arguments here. All immature emotion, no facts that speak to the actual concerns. j-allan nailed it on the head. If Intel costs a bit more per MHz but will get more stability, count me in. And if AMD is primarily for gaming (basically squeezing as much speed out for as little cost as possible, regardless of overall quality/stability), then knock yourselves out...gamers are welcome to keep them in business (which is definitely better for everyone), and AMD is welcome to that market.

This just proves AMD smokes the competition.
I only use AMD for my customers upgrades, and if they are used to INTEL, 90% of the time they will comment about the stability being much better. AMDs now shut down after a certain temp is reached so no more smoking if you are stupid enough to run a CPU without a heatsink.

Couple of things....

1st Item: Depending on what you want to do AMD may be better or Intel may be better. Mainly comes down to what you like, kinda like Ford/Chevy. I have both types here in workstations and servers, I like Intel for my servers and high end workstations and AMD for gaming and video editing.

2nd Item) The two movies of the AMD and Intel blowing up are fake. They are using explosives. How? Because, a chip will not blow out of the socket. As in the Toms Hardware video, you just saw them smoke, they do not explode. Also, If you look closely at the other videos when they zoom in on the motherboard, you will see that there is a hole in the motherboard as well as 1/2" - 3/4" plywood, sorry, not going to happen.

3rd Item: Till the day we all die, people will say AMD owns or Intel owns. "If you use Intel you are stupid", "if you use AMD you are stupid" People get over it. Yes, it may beat one in one benchmark, then the other in another benchm
