Athlon 64 3400+ 939?

I just bought an athlon 64 3400+ that is socket 939, it runs at 2.4 Ghz. Anybody know of any compatibility issues with these cpus. I will be plugging it into an Abit AN8 Motherboard.

  1. I'd just like to know where you got it. Got a clicky?
    I thought the s939 chips went from 3200+ and then the next step up is 3500+. I thought the 3400+ were all s754 - unless this is a chip made for large OEMs and you somehow got your hands on one...

  2. Rugger is right its 3200+ and 3500+ for 939 pin. Only socket 754 comes in 3400+
  3. Well, it says the part number is: ADA3400DEP4AZ
    A is for A64
    D is for desktop
    A is for regular wattage
    3400 is its rating
    D is for Socket 939
    E is for 1.5V (130nm)
    P is for a 70C max die temperature
    4 is for 512KB cache
    AZ is for the stepping

    So if the model number is anything to go by, it really is a 939 3400. So if it's a hoax it's a well done one. **ROFL**

  4. That is weird.. assuming this thing is real, the only explanation I see for the low PR rating (given the clock) is that only one memory controller is activated/functional. Maybe AMD had a bunch of semi flawed S939 chips with only one working MC, and turned them into something usefull for oems ?

  6. I wouldn't be so sure. On AMDs lists, AFAIK, you will also not find the 2.33 GHz Athlon XP 3200+ (166 FSB) they made exclusively for HP. This looks like a similar "special op" chip to me.

  8. you got me there, but I figured since it was form AMD's website that it was guaranteed acurate
  9. Ach. AMD is the worst source of information on their own products. :O They either like to hide a lot, or they're just lazy about being thorough. In this regard Intel kicks their arse. Intel is sickeningly thorough. Maybe that's what happens when you're the 'underdog': you don't have the money to document well.

  10. So assuming this works without a hitch, ive read its htt frequency is 800/1600(not really sure what that means, I know more about pentiums) So assuming this is dual channel enabled, will it run at about the same speed as the other 939 2.4's or i guess it might run like a 3500. any ideas?
  11. This really needs a sticky or something because of the confusion. The 939 3400+ is simply a 3500+ with a 800HTT rather than a 1000. Simple as that. They were mainly for oems.

  12. That chip has been around a while. It caused problems for a lot of people. It is not recognized in bios. Many boards have trouble dealing with that. The only suggestion I have, is to set the perameters manually, if your board supports it. Good luck.
  13. Here is my question...

    Why pay 217$US for a 2.4GHz chip when you can buy a BOXED 1.8GHz chip for much less that can EASILY match the performance with easy overclocking of the chip you just bought.

    I hope you will not have trouble make it work on your MoBo!

  14. 1. Because overclocks are not guarenteed.

    2. He may not want to overclock

    3 . He may have a crap psu that cannot handle the Vcore increase you would have to give the 1.8 to get to 2.4 (if that is possible - #1)

    ...the list is endless...

  15. Good reasons!

    But the PSU, even if it's not top-notch should not be an issue. Most A64 don't need a lot more vCore to run at 2.4GHz. Mine only need 0.1 Volt, and I'm sure I could drop it to default vcore, but I don't have the time to run long-term stability test right now.

    Fur sure, you will have an "exclusive" CPU! :smile:
