I like the AMD's, have a K6-3/450 here with a really heavy Alpha heatsink on it and a 27cfm bearing fan. Even with that fan... it just doesn't like make buildworld or building X without the case cover off though. Though it's not a small problem... it still performs well for me overall. My older K6/2 200 here can build all day no problem...the new ones just got really hot.
I actually had to give up on fbsd for my work desktop because the cheapie fan on the K6/2 450 I have just wouldn't cut it, even with the case off and the thing would just plain reboot on any moderate sized builds. I just don't have the time at the office to mess with it and my workstation is a management station of sorts as well.
I had these problems with my K6/2 450 until I finally got out the sandpaper and lapped both the CPU and the heatsink. The heatsink needed it much worse than the CPU. I have had only one reboot since I did that while loading the system heavily with an X build. Even one reboot is not good, but it's much better than it was.
They weren't flat or what. I found I could cook the heat transfer tape using an overclocked Celeron. I replaced the tape with heatsink compound but doing a build of XFree86 3.3.4 had finished cooking the cpu. I remember reading before where you did that and was going to ask you why.
www.pcpowercooling.com sells heavy duty heatsink/fans for many processors including the K6/2. If my problems ever return I plan to buy one from them.
Another place is http://www.3dfxcool.com/. He has some fans that look like they would lift the case off if you weren't using the cpu as a thrust reverser.
