While changing my hsf I finally remembered to make a note of the info printed on top off the cpu, having been told that some very clever people can use it to tell you everything about your processor and its overclockability (like if its locked). However I have no idea what any of it means. This is exactly whats printed on top of my cpu:

AXDA3000KV4E
F395095240291
AQXEA0329TPMW

what does it mean? what can you tell me about my cpu? im confused!! Help!
Thanks,

Vrykyl
