Hi.

The motherboard is a Dell F896N, and it is supposed to support the Phenom 3 CPU. If the CPU is not detected, ensure that the BIOS is up to date.


Here the list of supported CPU:

  • AMD Sempron ™
  • AMD Athlon ™ X2 Dual Core
  • AMD Phenom ™ X3 8450,2.1 GHz, 2MB L3, 95W 
  • AMD Phenom ™ X4

Inspiron 1501 cpu upgrade problem


Did you check the AMD site for compatibility? If they are, you could have a bad chip, it could have been mishandled or inserted incorrectly. Visual inspection first for burns, contaminated or bent conductors. Static discharge will kill cpus.

I want mother board AMD SEMPRON(tm) PROCESSOR free home edition


That chip should be a Socket AM2 interface, so these mothorboards will be fine, it all depends on how much you want to spend.

Foxconn M61PMV

PC chips A15G

Biostar K8M800MAM2

ABIT NF-M2PV

MSI K9N6PGM2-V

Have a look or ask at your prefered site or shop for Socket AM2 and you will have a much better choice.

I want to upgrade to use ocz platnum memory. I have a acer aspire 1.8 gig 3100+ processor. No shielding. Most kits are discontinued. What type of heat shielding and fan is used if I can find the 1.8 gig...


You are using a very old socket/CPU I very much doubt you will find a retailer that sells new kits or whatever your looking for (kinda hard to decipher your question) As for shielding, shielding for what? wires?
Also you really wont have any performance gain upgrading to a 3200 over a 3100+

I'd recommend upgrading your board totally to a 939 or higher like a AMD AM2 platform. Then you can browse dozens of OCZ kits and have many dual and quad processors to choose from.

Which is a better processor?


The AMD Phenom x4 is actually cheaper with 4 cpu cores compaired to Core 2 duo which has 2 cpu cores, you will get a better deal for less money on a AMD x4.

Heres a chart you can look at
http://www.tomshardware.com/charts/desktop-cpu-charts-q3-2008/3DMark-Vantage-CPU,817.html

I just got myself the AMD Phenom 9650 for 150usd
The core 2 duo e6600, which I would recommend from the core duo series costs around 200 usd.

Note that the Duo only has 2 cpu cores. You get double the power on a phenom 4x with 4 cpu cores
So the phenom is definitely the best choise! (double the power for 50usd less)

Anything else?
