    What kind of heatsink fan does AM2 X2 comes with more specificly the AM2 X2 3800. I cant seem to find any information regarding what kind of heatsink fan they come with. Basicly i want to got those with 4 heatpipe and 80mm fan. This one http://enthusiast.hardocp.com/article.html?art=MTEwNSwyLCxoZW50aHVzaWFzdA==
    I know in S939 some come with 70mm fan, dont want those for they are noisy and hard to replace.
    And do the Energy efficient moddel of AM2 X2 comes with the same kind of heatsink fan too? If not what kind of Heatsink fan do they come with?

    the 3800+ doesnt come with the new AMD heatpipe cooler, i think its 4200+ and above that it ships with. You can pick up the heatpipe cooler of ebay if you really want it. Seen a few going for under £10 last week

    X2 4200+ is with 11X multi. That is too bad cos i want to have those that has even numbers of multi. And the X2 4600+ with 12X cost almost double compared to X2 3800+. Anyway have read somewhere the odd number multi will effect the memory performance. Is there any truth in it? And by the way how to calculate the memory banwith?

    Memory Bandwidth(in MB/s) = physical clockspeed(in MHz) x bus width(in bytes - 1 byte = 8 bits) x packets of data transferred per clock cycle(2 for DDR)

    Example: PC3200 DDR-SDRAM: 200MHz physical clock x 8(64 bit = 8 byte bus) x 2(DDR) = 3200MB/s
    if it's Dual-channel, the bus width effectively doubles since you have 2x64bit(NForce2) or 1x128bit(A64 FX/Opteron), so it's 6400MB/s smile.gif
