Double stamped Pentium 4?

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
So i just bought this on ebay, and mostly for curiosity more than for an upgrade.
Its double stamped on the back! The guys said he pulled it from a Dell and the Dell saw it as 3.0 ghz..., do you think they bought a boat load of 3.4ghz's and underclocked some, selling them as 3.0ghz's?

I'm super curious, what do you guys think or have any of you seen this before?

More likely than not it is a 3.0, stamped as a 3.4 for a better price. Can you pop it in your motherboard? I doubt it, but I dont know much about your board. Try it and open a CPU-Z

I don't have it yet, I just won it today. hopefully $100 well spent...

anyways, i did some research. "SL8BM" the spec number on the first stamp does not appear anywhere in intel's processor finder, so they never made any processor with that spec. "SL7J8" is correct for 3.4ghz, but the first stamp is for a processor they have never made, apparently..

interesting.. once i get it i'll show CPU-Z info for everyone..

also, i google searched a bit and I found a guy on another forum who had the same thing, two stamps, same speeds and from a Dell. hmmm...

Pulled from a Dell, showing 3.0ghz but stamped is a 3.4ghz?

That is indeed a 3.0ghz or 530.

Same crap happened to me. I bought a 540 but it has two labels 3.2ghz and just like yours....3.4ghz on the other.

It's working great in my 2nd rig, I've OC'd to 3.6ghz.
