    There's aren't different Venice cores so it's the same thing. & Athlon64s have a HyperTranspot link, not a FSB.

    If you had actually taken the time to read up on Athlon64s you wouldn't even be asking the question. Both use the Venice core so they're the same & as nein pointed out one comes with a fan, the other doesn't. That's it.

    so why do they say intergrated FSB, why dont they just say 1GHz FSB, instead of integrated, i know the other one is OEM and the other one comes with a heatsink and fan. so why cant they juist say both of them are 1GHz FSB

    The more complicated they can make it sound, the more likely they are to sell it. It's a bit like rebranding already available technology with a new name (AMD's Quantispeed a few years back is a good example).
