    Yep. Make sure that it is a Socket AM2 processor in order for it to fit.

    Yeah that was my old cpu. I'm currently running prime95 though on that rig so let's see what happens.

    EDIT: using the FFT option for prime95, so far nothing happened. How long should I run this?

    Prime95 takes a rly long time to check for faults, so about 10 - 12 hrs. IBT can do it in 10 rounds so about an hour tops (unless your CPU is THAT slow).

    Couple hours should do it. It's possible that it isn't going to crash, and if that's the case, and you ran the small FFT one, it's gotta be your memory or motherboard.

    I did the small FFT one for a couple hours with nothing wrong, I was unsure of number of tortue test threads to run: option, but yeah nothing happened.

    2, but it would default to that. If nothing went wrong in that time, I'd look more toward memory or motherboard.

    But then, it passed memtest (how many passes) so that would make me look more toward CPU or motherboard.

    First thing to try is put that old chip in and see if the problem goes away.

    7 Passes on memtest

    Ya, so I have a feeling it's more motherboard actually since the chances of CPU failure is so low ... I can't even fathom the low numbers.

    I can't recall the last time a CPU legitimately failed that wasn't due to overclocking.

    I'll give it a shot with the new CPU tomorrow sometime, maybe I'll do another prime95 overnight for a bigger sample. Those two however are the oldest pieces of my computer so, eh maybe it's time they went kaput who knows.

    I'm kind of happy it isn't my VGA so far, however I'm not satisfied because I don't know what's wrong yet T_T

    Both your board and CPU are rather old.

    if it ends up being cpu or motherboard, regardless i'll need to change. I don't know which direction I should go though, because I don't want to upgrade to something that's not compatible with the new stuff out.

    Lucky man....

    My account for Battle.net is asking me for authenticator code all of a sudden, I am EXTREMELY worried, now I cannot get in.

    How's the beta guys? Nice? I sure hope it is.

    I've heard Starcraft II has had severe technical problems with many systems so it's probably the game, no worries though, it will probably have to get fixed.

    If you didn't put an authenticator on it, you need to be calling Blizzard right this minute, because your account has been hacked.

    Been happening 5 times now!

    I am going to change all of the credentials possible to change! Guaranteed now! I think my poor Email address has been plagued as I used to play wow and those stupid ass Chinese, spam me with false warning 24/7!

    Sigh, I will send them my details....again......
