No, Fully-Buffered is almost exclusively used with the Intel 5000/5400
series of chipsets.  If there's anything else out there that uses it, I've
not heard of it.

That screwed us early-adopters of Core Xeons well and good--doubly so
those of us who bought Macs built around them, which need funky Apple
heatsink/thermal-sensor bits.
