Hi im currently using an AMD Athlon 64 processor 3800 can i just swap processors?? or do i need new motherboard?

:thinking:

We need to know what motherboard you have, so we can determine the socket, most likely Socket 939 or AM2. You can download CPU-Z, and if you take a screenshot of it running, we will be able to see the socket type.

If it fits, you would also need new thermal paste and maybe a new cooler.
banned#6
its got to be AM2, there are no 939's as far as i can see

It's an OEM processor - scroll to bottom (notes)

I always buy retail CPUs as a three year warranty and heatsink / fan are a small price to pay...however CPUs are very reliable today and most people buying these would probably buy their own cooling solution anyway.

I will point out that this processor uses alot more power than an Intel Core 2 Duo equivalent (Athlon X2 6000 - 125W / C2D E6750 - 65W)...its not as efficient. Please no AMD vs Intel wars ;-)

A good price especially for people on low end Athlon X2s (3800/4200/4400) on Socket AM2 motherboards wanting a decent upgrade. As already mentioned this is not for Socket 939 motherboards. I do not know if lowestonweb have a good reputation mind.


Hixxy22 - if your motherboard is AM2 then please make sure that your motherboard can support it (should do). Usually some motherboards need a BIOS update to recognise a newer CPU (especially if released months after the board came out). This is more of an issue with motherboards with Intel processors however.

I would recommend finding the motherboard manufactuer (e.g. Asus/Gigagyte) and model number of your board, then going to thier official site and checking CPU support list.

Also there was an X2 3800 released for Socket 939 and then Socket 940...as suggested download and run CPU-Z

It says socket 939 which my motherboard takes, site seems a little dodgy though... I am after a new one if it is socket 939 though

The fastest processor for Socket 939 was the AMD Athlon X2 4800 which is now retired - it still sells on eBay for a small fortune. There is a mistake in their listing which I assume they have cut and paste from somewhere. The 6000 is AM2 only ;)
#11
If ur 939 go Opteron Dual Core! They are server processors soooo higher quality silicon for high rate up time which means less power requirements and therefore Overclocking potential is high! 1.8ghz Opterons have been seen running at the 3.0ghz mark on air! With Water ur looking at more! AND ther cheap as well chips now too!

does this cpu come with the heatsink and fan?

no. it's oem. you wouldn't want to use them anyhow -much noisier and not as efficient as spending an extra £10-£20 on a good fan.


was tempted to get the 6000 x2 but decided i'm not buying a new am2 cpu until there's a marked change in power consumption. all my adobe creative suite 3 programs run flawlessly anyway and that's with a 3500 (not dual core) and 4gb ram on vista ultimate!
#14
Hi ,
I have a 4200 dual core processor 2gb ram and the motherboard is
Asus M2N-E SLI. Wouls this make a lot of difference -or would i be better adding more ram . Running Vista home premium.
Thanks

thanks for your reply. im still thinking of buying this processor. but could you recommend me a good heatsink fan that will be compatible with this processor? it has to have an am2 socket right?
#16
great cpu, great price, voted hot...:thumbsup:

I much prefer AMD over dirty intel :giggle:

thanks bro

I personally havn't used that one, but it looks pretty good, coolermaster stuff is usually pretty good quality...
#21
The Coolermaster Hyper TX cooler performs on a par with the Arctic heatsink and is slightly quieter so I would go for the Coolermaster especially at that price, but be aware that these heatsinks are pretty big so make sure you have enough clearance in your case.

I went for this one with mine - http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/ProductInfo.asp?WebProductID=340993

Got good reviews in Custom PC magazine
#23
Don't know if this will have any bearing on anyones purchasing decision, but it's worth a mention IMO. Lowestonweb are owned by Evesham who are in trouble:

The best cooler is the Arctic Freezer Pro 7: http://custompc.co.uk/labs/84132/arctic-cooling-freezer-7-pro.html

This is an oem AM2 processor: http://www.amdcompare.com/us-en/desktop/details.aspx?opn=ADX6000IAA6CZ

says £90 now, ive got an oppy 170 but its time to move on to quadcore systems.
#26
Mine just arrived - despite the web site saying {under at a glance section) it is designed to fit in the same 939-pin infrastructure as single core processors, it is AM2 and the invoice also says skt AM2. So now I have a brand new processor than doesn't fit my A8N-SLi motherboard.

Did anyone actually read my posts???!!!!! :? where's a brick wall when you need one?

I took all that time and effort trying to help and to make it CLEAR to potential buyers looking for a decent CPU upgrade.

I feel sorry for the OP to be honest...I only helped because I have good knowledge of PC hardware

Look back at my posts and you'll see that I did mention that this CPU is AM2 only NOT Socket 939 and that they've probably cut and pasted the generic marketing info from somewhere without even reading it first. Btw I have the same motherboard as you - again the fastest processor this can support is a Socket 939 AMD Athlon X2 4800 which is now discontinued....and only available on eBay for a small fortune.

Woow, 65 watts more electricity, this means £30 electric bill a year if used 12 hrs per day.
However in the winter months we needed the heat anyway to keep warm so say £10 of the £30 is used to offset the gar bill!
