    Yes they are the same processor just packaged as a box or tray processor
  2. Thanks for the info guys I thought they were but but I'm buying the latter at auctions so can't afford to be wrong. Can't wait to get it here and get it installed I've been running a 1.8 sempron since I built this system in '06 the asus m2a-vm motherboard has never been pushed to its total potential can't to tweak and peak it and see what this thing will really do...
  3. if you put that cpu on the m2a-vm board update the bios before the install of the new cpu to 5001 with you old cpu on to have it work
  4. This is the second question I've seen like this today, guys the important thing about a boxed heat sink is that it comes with a 3 year warranty while an OEM will only have one month. The warranty is worth the extra $10.
  5. agree on the boxed one
