8 times as much????!!! The Pentium 4 E 3.4GHZ ihas MSRP of 278US, and the Sempron 3100+ has a MSRP of 12x US I dunno where your getting 8 times as much from more like 2.5 times as much.

What can you tell me about ASUS K8N-E Deluxe Chipset Nforce 3 250 for overclocking this CPU?

Very good article, never knew it was that good - I had been avoiding that chip as the Athlon64 2800+ was about the same price but better performing. Just a shame you can't get NF3 250 Shuttles/barebones yet.

Great eye opener for me. Super article.

Would be nice to see what how an OC'd Stock AMD64 3000+ compares using it's stock cooling. Looking at the prices of the mb, Sempron 3100, and Thermaltake Silentboost = $282. The Stock AMD64 3000+ plus a slightly cheaper but still great mb, the DFI "LANPARTY UT nF3 250Gb" = $298. Not much of a difference, but I'm sure the Silentboost is better than the stock AMD HSF on the AMD64 3000+. Also according to the messageboards over at, the AMD64 3000+ has a 10multiplier instead of a 9 that the Sempron and AMD64 2800+ has... or something like that. All this multiplying and dividing is a little confusing to me since I haven't messed with these systems any.

"My only disappointment with the piece was that the author failed to mention that the new VIA K8T800 chipsets have the pci/agp lock. Mine works great and I am currently running my Sempron 3100 @ 2.3 Ghz, 1.55 vcore, 256 FSB, LDT x 4 (1024 x 2 = 2048 die speed mem controller, 5/6 mem divider)."

You mean the K8T890 chipset.

Nice, just picked one up last night from NewEgg for $100 and a Refurb K8T NEO-FIS2R for $45. Cant wait to get it and fire her up ;)

I was debating the Sempron vs. A64-2800 for a while, but for $37 more, why bother? When 64-bit OS actually arrives, I will then upgrade to a capable processor.

Just curious what they do to disable 64-bit? Is it a bridge setting, or a redesigned core? If it is a bridge setting, I wonder if a Pin mod would work to enable it...Hmmm.

Got it running on the Asus K8N. Rock stable at 2.4Ghz! Been running Prime95 on it for over 48 hours without a hickup.

Seems to be stable at 2.5 also, but at 2.6 it starts choking.

How about a ASRock K8S8X ? Will it be good for overclocking this Sempron 3100+?

Or a Asus K8T800 ?
