the 3400+ 64 mobile is supposed to be a nice overclocker. Seen a lot of 2.7GHz clocks, buuuut I'd rather get a 3500+ socket 939 winnie and OC that to 2.7GHz, I've seen it hit those speeds also

Ace No-Money... Those reasons for going 754 arent valid...
First, 754 lacks dual channel memery. But provides 1MB L2 cache. Since 939 low-end processor lack 1mb L2 cache, while 754 lacks dual channel memery. Neither one of two advatages of the sockets benefit for the better. Basically, since they both lack 1 of the other, they are equal for the dual channel memery and 1mb L2 cache factor. So just because 754 has 1mb L2 cache, does not mean its a real advantage. Same with 939.

Second, 939 has 2.0ghz HTT, witch is alot better. Another big factor is 939 runs at the same operating frequency as 754, but stays cooler and faster. So thats a big advantage. Even 939 supports 3000-3200-3400, im not sure about 3700, but for the price of the 3700, you should just get the 3800.

Sockt 754 does not support 90nm, but 939 does. Again making 939 running cooler, and ideal for OC. It sounds like you dident understand why 939 was soooo much better. Because you wouldent of made this thread. But 939 is ideal for AMD64's.
Finished With TF.

AMD's new Turion mobile 64 CPUs are 754s.,00.html

From what I've read so far, 754 is not a bone-head move after all. Considering that AMD has already said that it will go with dual-core mobile CPUs and all.

Antec 300 Illusion / Antec EarthWatts EA650 650W / ASUS GeForce GTX 960 GTX960-DC2OC-2GD5
AMD Ryzen 5 1600 x6 core / MSI B350 Gaming Plus
Samsung 970 EVO 250GB M.2 SSD / WD Blue SSD 250GB / WD Black 750GB / WD Green 1TB
2x4GB DDR4 2400 / Win10 Pro x64
