Are these two chalk and cheese or are they interchangable. Is it one pin difference we are talking about or just a reference number?
Thanks.

PS: Another question.
Thermal paste goes between heatsink/cpu and usually a clip of some sort holds it all tight.
What is the product which goes between chipset and heatsink where there is no clip to hold it tight?
Thanks again :-)

The two are not compatible.

939 is for mainline chip.

940 is for server chip(Opteron) which requires ECC RAM.
