Hi 1st my system specs asus a7n8x deluxe 2.0 1gig mem 3200 420watt psu 80g hhd current cpu 2800 barton Last week I bought a 3200 cpu at a fair installed it and it came up as a 2500, ok changed the fsb to 200 and hurray 3200 tried 3dmark and the pc switched off after 3 minutes.tried a game as soon as it loaded pc shut down. later research reveals unlocked 2500 often sold as 3200s.checked serial numbers and found more numbers and what looked like 2500 under the clearly eledgable 3200.so after some near heated talks with retailer i got an exchange. alas this new one gets past the post into last known good config where i can't even use the keyboard to make a choice.back to retailer more heated talks,now he wants me to bring my pc over to wembley i live in islington and rely on public transport help!!
