OEM installed--needed to swap out due to bluescreens
26 January 2013
Summary: This was the OEM processor in a consumer Acer X3400G pc which I bought at Walmart 1.5 years ago. For the last 2 months this machine was experiencing frequent bluescreens. The blue screen codes varied, but would often indicate unaddressed cache errors. Mean time from boot to failure was ~1hr. After some agonizing (i suspected the 225W power supply might be contributing to issue), i purchased a slightly upgraded 3.4 GHz AMD Athlon X2 270.
