[Charlie Austin] "some of the team believe it's a computer issue, but some are just as convinced that it was caused by issues with the Beta versions of PP they were running at the time"

It may be a combination of both. What AMD told me was that on the 12-cores with dual D-700s, when you are running at full blast, the combined CPU and GPU heat load is too great under the normal ambient temperatures that you'd find in a typical air-conditioned edit suite. Clearly it's not just one production that has had this issue, as it's a known problem at least to AMD. It tends to affect the top-end versions of these machines. If you noticed the various custom enclosures on the floor, which house a nMP inside, some of the designers put a big fan in front of the lower intake side of the nMP, just to push more air through it.
