I didnt even know there was a 3400+ 939 chip
thats a good buy though, even if you do junk the case and psu

That is a real strange Proc. They List it as not avaiable for sale by its self. if you search Tiger.

NewEgg has it too with the stipulation you can only purchase it with a Qualifying motherboard.

it is a NewCastle 130NM looks like.

Note: it is not a regular Socket 939.

If you buy that processor you will need to set the HT to 4 as it can not handle 5x.

Their is a sticky in the 64bit forums over at AMDZone about this cpu and people that have purchased and had problems with them.

Almost all of the problems ended up with the user having the wrong HT settings enabled.

So FYI... 3400+ Socket 939 is a 800 HT only chip. If you pick a board that is not listed to work with it, it may not run. If you pick a board that is listed to run with it, to get it to run stable you will need to set it to a 4x HT or 800Mhz HT in the bios.

Funny thing about that cpu it supports the same HT interface that the Socket 940's do, but the 940's come with 1MB of cache so why was this cpu produced???

I have the 3400+ but, it's a 754
It works awsome.

Alot of times when the deal is to good to be true is because there has been lot of problems or complaints.

It'sd a good rule of thumb to check the reviews in this situation!

Tiger Direct has been know to move a lot of 'deals' like this - i have several friends who have done business with them and recommend against it.

I have a TigerDirect 3400+ with Asus A8V Deluxe board and they are working VERY well. Blows the doors off my XP-M 2600+ @ 2.5GHz.
