There are places selling cpu/motherboard combos where the sockets don't
match? What kind of idiots would they have to be to do that?
I must admit amd's website does not list a 3400 that isn't socket 754,
so that would be a problem for a socket 939 board.
I would have never thought of that as a potential problem.
