As far as I know several rx2600, rx2620 and rx2660(?)
with Madison and Montesito processors are known to
be stable. My work rx2600 fbsd server can stay
up for months under daily and occasional heavy use.
However, we get spontaneous reboots whenever
we try to start portscluster build. You can have a look
