DELL 1600 and 1650 potential fire risk

Has anyone experienced any of the supposed problems with the Dell 1600
and 1650 servers? Apparantly a percentage of these servers shipped early
last year have a fault on the motherboard, whereby the video chip
actually burns up in a huge cloud of smoke.
We are getting conflicting reports out of Dell, depending who we talk
to. The support technicians have all said they have seen 3 or 4 of these
failures each over the past 6 months or so, but our account manager kind
of glosses over the problem.
Any feedback would be appreciated.
