Yes both type of masses will work on all platforms but one will be easy then the other and suit your needs better,I use 3 different type of pots and all react differently.

interesting thanks for the info smile.gif . for you and everyone else what type/pot would you go with for AMD??? i decided to start with AMD since it feels easier to begin on since does not suffer from cold bugs. i also do plan to bench intel down the track. BTW end of this month i plan to buy at least one pot. still open to suggestions.
