Summary: Ordered this item over a year ago and had the same problem. I was sent the AM2 which does not work with my motherboard. The price was great at the time and I was really let down by that. It says socket 939 on all of the info and when you get it the box only says AM2.
Summary: When I received my item it was not the one I ordered, it had a different socket number, so it did not fit in my tower. I tried contacting the merchant for exchange or refund with no replies at all. I finally had to contact Amazon to see if they could do anything I am still awaiting their decision to see if I will be getting the correct item or a refund.
Summary: i was very excited today to have receive the processor for my socket 939 motherboard. when i opened the package i was disappointed to discover that i had been sent a socket AM2 processor instead. it was a great price, i guess too good to be true. if you have a socket AM2 motherboard i highly suggest jumping on this deal.
Summary: The product copy describes a socket 939 processor and the picture is of a socket 939 processor. What you get is a socket AM2. I suggest buying a processor only from a vendor who can give you the serial number.
Summary: I don't know what I have done wrong but I'm having a lot of trouble with mi AMD 64 X2 4400. I had a box working perfectly with an AMD 3500+. I just swap the CPU with the new AMD X2 4400 and with a new Fan (Zalman 9xxx). It started craching. I'have updated the firmware of the mother board, the chipset, fresh install of the OS.. Nothing. I'm still having a lot of unstability. I'm really disapointed about it...
