looking on newegg to purchase some new stuff and i noticed that for the retail athlon 64 3000+ the voltage says 1.35/1.4 and for the OEM it says 1.5V.

Why is there a difference and does it matter at all?

The retail one you are looking at is probably a venice/san diego core.
I'd also assume that the oem you saw is a newcastle. Those cores have the respective voltages.

If you're looking to buy a new proc, get a Venice/San Diego core. More instructions, lower voltages, better o/c'ing /smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' />
