    Does AMD sell a Athlon64 3200+ CPU with a 512KB level 2 cache?
    I ordered one from Newegg and the order says it has a 512KB cache.
    But every where I checked says it has 1MB cache
    I ordered the retail one. The OEM is listed as having 1MB.
    As far as I know the only difference is the warrantee and fan.

    Shopping from the processor catagory web page and searching
    for Athlon 64, I see these two:

    Athlon 64 3200+ 512KB 2.2GHz Retail $282 ADA3200BOX
    Athlon 64 3200+ 1MB 2.0GHz Retail $282 ADA3200AXBOX

    I guess AMD is in the middle of a confusing transition. Best
    to check with your vendor, to see if you are getting a processor
    with more cache, or a processor that is better at driving DIMMs.
    At least according to this thread...

    The model newegg lists is the ADA3200AXBOX
    According to the link you gave you have them reversed.
    Looks like I ordered the 512KB cache model.
    Guess I better call Newegg tomorrow.

    your motherboard is designed for

    Oops :) You're right, the 'BOX and 'AXBOX should be reversed.
    It is confusing :) And I tried to look up and verify on the
    AMD site, and they currently show only 512KB, as if the 1MB
    never existed. I wish AMD had the equivalent of

    I got the right socket (754) just missed the cache.
    Maybe I won't notice any difference if I don't run any benchmarks.
