you should try a quad HS125 setup. they made them with 256K and 512K
cache per processor. I have a 20 with quad 125 with 512K per proc.
I don't run it much as I need to come up with better cooling. I don't
like boxes that run too hot (IMHO of course)... heat=death. I was
running it for a while with a 3 fan fan tray that happened to be
twice as tall as a 20... so I put it blowing into a stack of 20 SS20s.
Would like to find something better though.
