I'm sure this was covered somewhere already, but I can't get the search function to work properly.

I'm looking to buy an AMD X2 4800+ processor - which die size should I get, 90nm or 65nm? On another site, I read that the 65nm CPU actually performs slower despite being rated slightly faster (2.5 GHz instead of 2.4 GHZ).

Thanks for your help.

On a separate note, I had no idea the 65w 90nm processors would be so hard to find. Looks like I might be stuck having to buy a 65nm.

Hey, I was wondering, does anyone know if the .5 multipliers work for old 939 chips? For the system in my sig, I tried, and my ram went to some slow/weird speed and my SLI stopped working. Does this sound like a processor or MB problem. I am leaning toward a MB error, because this MB has been through a lot, but I was just wondering if you guys knew anything else about it. I know 13 (stock) and 14 seem to work, but I don't think 13.5 or 14.5 worked.
