That is exactly the way I get my OEM's
Someone correct me if I am wrong here, but I thought the only way the Retail chips came was in a retail AMD box with HSF and AMD case sticker as stated by several other posters.

If I put CPU frequency (whatever that is) on 110 instead of 100, it won't boot. It has pretty good cooling, never goes over 38º C. ALso, the memory won't let me run with the settings at 2 instead of SPD. Why not? I have 512 MB of SDRAM memory. Do you guys think that's too much? I have Norton and whenever I use the computer for awhile i end up with 0 megs free. With 512, is that normal? I have win ME
