Fellow torque users,

I'm curious if anyone is using dual - dual core AMD Opteron, nodes with torque and maui.  If so, I would like to know of any difficulties or problems you might have experienced that seem to be unique (non-Intel/Xeon) to the architecture.  Have you had any problems with cooling in packed rack clusters of 1U units?  Do they produce more heat than dual-single core units?  If so, is it significantly more or a small percentage per unit more?

Also, although the GHz range is less, how do these systems compare to Xeons?  Here I am interested in total performance of the 1U system than just the CPU clock rate.

Any experiences would be welcome.
