    The Sempron 3300+ doesn't really exist, which is why you can't seem to find a heatsink for it

    Actually, it is quite rare, and what AMD did with excess Athlon XP 3200+ stocks. They disabled a half of the L2 cache and repackaged them as "Sempron 3300+"

    So, you should be looking for a heatsink and fan for the Athlon XP 3200+ and that will suit just fine

    If you want one that actually says Sempron 3300+ then I found this:

    http://www.houstonwarehouse.com/htm-...-motor-a43.htm

    But any decent quality heatsink and fan for the Athlon XP 3200+ will do just fine. The cooler manufacturers just don't bother to mention it as a Sempron 3300+ because there were relatively few of them sold under that badge.

    Hi oofki,

    That is an interesting point............. is it a Socket A processor? (also known as Socket 462).

    That is what I was referring to in my previous post. It has a "Barton" core and runs at 2.2MHz.

    On top of the processor you should see:

    SDA3300DKV4E

    There is a later version of the Sempron 3300+ which is Socket 754. It has a "Paris" core and runs at 2.0 MHz.

    On top of the processor you should see one of these product codes:

    SDA3300A1O2BA
    SDA3300A1O2BO
    SDA3300A1O2BX


    If Zelfaldor already has a motherboard, he will know which it is, otherwise he will need to take care in buying a MoBo as Socket A is obsolete, and would need searching for.

    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
