From what I am gathering on the web is that these procs either do not exist or are very rare. The only Newcastle 3400+ I could find was a socket 754.

Going with what Grinch has said, the only 3400+ Newcastle core CPU that I have come across was in Skt 754.

You do get Newcatsle cores in Skt 939 but not the 3400+.

Seems like he does have one though according to his screen shot. Leads me to believe that they do exist however rare. Either that or the CPU is mislabeled and CPU-z is pulling bad info.

Yeah, possibly best that he has a chat with someone on the AMD forum about it.

thanks everyone, i think i will do some AMD posting, or sue them tiger [expletive deleted's]

try and sue apple will you?! well, i'll countersue with this nonsense

and the only reason i used tigerdirect is because mother said no to newegg[ after ppt upon ppt of explaining how it was better than tiger] and they had a physical store next to me.

okie dokes, was a little worried there for a while

turn out, according to this, that my processor is still a skt 939, indentical to the 3500, only with a HTT of 800 mhz, instead of 1000.

this can be seen in the following quote -
Quote:
Check out the many, many threads on the site from owners of the 3400+ 939 pin processor (myself included). This is an OEM processor that is identical to the 3500+ except it has a 800MHz HTT instead of the 1000 HTT.......


YAY, im ok, tigerdirect is not a shoddy dealer, and i really have a 3500 with a lower HTT... :)


and i can OC the HTT to 1000, making it effectively, a 3500+...teehee....i think, i hope.PLEASE SAY YES!!!

Yes it is possible to knock up the FSB as long as your mobo supports up to 1000Mhz or more.
