Can't get 3700 clawhammer work !!!!!

Recommended Posts

HI there! I've bought a few days ago a cpu from the german ebay, the 3700+ clawhammer one. The processor arrived without the box and guees what, no fan either. It was instead packed in a really dodgy plastic case which was inside the letter. Yeap the processor arrived insode a letter.. lol.. So the thing now is that i tried it on my dfi lanparty ut and it's not functioning... It worked just fine with my previous 3400+..

 

Any ideas? Did i get mugged here, or there are any tricks to make this processor work.. :confused:

 

Regards , Romanos...

i didn't i had any problems with the other cpu's i tried: amd sempron 3100 (worked without cmos restart) and amd athlon 3400+..long cmos is a real hassle... this cpu should just work.. shouldn't?

Pretty weird, on my nf250 I've directly swapped a 3200+C0, a 2800+CG and 3700+CG without a serious problem. But sometimes on first boot I got a garbled screen, a reset would solve it forever but on the other hand, I get that when I change pci stuff too.

If the cpu is good, it might be memory controller related, maybe you should try to boot it after cmos reset with only one stick.

I've tried this athlon 3700+ on a dusty msi and it boots to bios and let me install windows but after reboot it just stucks on the windows xp logo... don't know what the hell is going on.. is this cpu working properly or what.. :mad:
