How to remove the AMD athlon 64x2 3800+


This is a very simple procedure.
When you have opened the case you will see the CPU cooling fan on top of the CPU. It is held on by two clips which fasten at the sides of the fan radiator, onto a clip which is fastened to the motherboard.
The clips are removed by turning the retaining clips to a loose position and then easing the clips from the securing lugs on the motherboard cradle. The cooling radiator may be stuck to the top of the CPU due to the heatsink compound used in the original fitting. If that is the case gently but firmly rotate the radiator in a clockwise and then an anti-clockwise movement until you feel the adhesion get loose. DO NOT try pulling the radiator upwards until you can feel no resistance.
The radiator should then pull away from the CPU easily. This will reveal the CPU beneath. Release the CPU retaining lever at the side of the CPU until it is vertical to the motherboard. The CPU can be lifted from it's carrier. Be aware that the CPU has small pins which locate into it's carrier in a specific way. Refer to the CPU documentation as to how to refit it. Although CPUs are susceptible to static, placing it onto a piece of aluminium foil or conductive plastic will protect it.

CPU (processor) speed dropped to 1.09GHZ


Go back into the Bios and change the settings back. If this does not correct the issue you may have another issue. If this is a laptop you can reset the bios by locating the Bios reset switch, usually appears as a pin hole on the bottom of the computer, if this is a desktop then you need to use the Bios Reset jumper on the motherboard. It sounds as thought Windows is not reading the CPU type and speed correctly so you need to undo the change you made to get it back up to speed.

AMD Athlon 64x2 brisbane 2.9 ghz fans too loud now WHAT TO DO!!!


If you have no heating problems,and you used good cooling paste ,for resplace the CPU ,only loud problems, you can leave the original copper core cooling fan.first reset the pc, when you see the Welcome window of the motherboard (ASUS FOXCOMM, BIOSTAR ECT) click delete repeatedly, you will enter the bios setup, very carefully,only looking for (cool and quiet) and check this, you can also need to check the CPU temperature ,,normal is 35 C to 45 C ,(if the temperature is over 50 C,reistall the CPU and used new cooler paste) ,then you give scape. save the changes and restart the PC, now the motherboard fan speed controlled, as required, only spun faster when you really need to cool the prossesador, such as a very graphical game ect, really going to notice a big change cpu fan sound, if that cool and quiet and had been activated o this is a factory PC like DELL ,ACER ,ect ,and have no change, you can buy a new cpu fan on e-bay very cheap,like factory amd 64x2 6000 cpu fan and for no will have more trouble

I have an AMD Athlon FX 2 dual processor and am using Core Temp to monitor the temps of which are posting 44 to 50 while using my computer. Is this normal?


I believe normal temperatures range from 41 to 95. At least from this laptop that is running a dual processor:

Also somebody else here had the same type of question:

From my experience as long as its not running over 100 then you'll be fine. If you have any doubts about your computer overheating you can always apply more compound to the heatsink and also buy a bigger one where the fan runs faster to keep things cooler inside of the case and always remember to have the side doors on as well.

How to get my CPU to run at the correct speed


Your FSB should be 400 MHz for the Athlon XP 3200+ processor.
CPU-Z shows your core speed at 1320 and your FSB at 241. If you multiply those numbers by 1.66, you get 2200 and 400. So all you have to do is get the board to the correct FSB speed of 400 and your core will be right.
There are two MSI boards with the number CPU-Z gives you. Board 1
Board two

The AMD page doesn't show the core voltage for the older processors, they do for the current ones. I looked at the MSI site and didn't see their manuals online for the motherboards either, sorry. I'm not positive it was changed using a jumper though, you saw nothing in the BIOS to set it? If the jumpers are on the board they may be labeled FSB and you can try the various positions.

Hope that helps, good luck.

Intel Pentium Dual Core and AMD Athlon 64 X2 processors


I'd advise don't start thinking below E2180. As per the performance go, E2180 and AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ are almost same but E2180 runs cooler. If you are going to use dedicated graphics card, go for E2180 and if you want a CPU for Integrated Graphics go for AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ because most of the 780G/790X chip-based AMD-compatible boards offer superior IGP.
Best wishes...

E2180 Vs Athlon 64 X2 5000+


depends on what you plan to do with the cpu amd are good but a 3200 may only run @ 1.8 to 3.2 ghz depending while a intel 3200 will run 3.2 ghz.
I believe intel are more stable & run cooler than AMD but AMD benchmarks on Games better but run hotter (so get a good cooling fan & heatsink both pentium / celeron d & intel dou / dual core / core 2 dou and amd x2 have 2 cores (but watch your front side bus and cache the higher the better but the more $ also) then You need a good stable mobo that supports the chip you get (I preffer asus & msi for Gamers and biostar / msi for home users)

Processor upgrade


Need to look at the motherboard specs along with the processor "Socket". It will usually be a 754 or 939 depending on what your motherboard says. I wouldn't try too fast and set yourself up for disappointment. I would upgrade the RAM before the processor.
