Apparently AMD also sells a 939 pin 3400+ CPU as that is how mine is
marked. (OK, I didn't look for a 939 designation, but the number of
pins is approximately the number of holes in the socket. ;)

My BIOS reports that memory is operating in dual channel mode on
startup. After replacing it twice to solve instability problems with
RAM in slots 3 and 4, it now seems to be rock solid. (Seems to be
because in about a week, I have one lockup. I will probably move the
RAM back to slots 1,2 because that is the first hang I have
experienced with my setup.)

My setup incidentally is an AV8 1.1, 3400+, 2x 512GB PC3200 GEIL Value RAM.
