9550 Phenom on BIOSTAR A780L3L?

post #1 of 5

Im kind of unsure since the phenoms arent listed as supported on their site but i thought that you can stick an AM2 CPU into an AM3 Board and vice versa.

Hi.

That CPU can't work with your mobo, the mobo is socket AM3 and the CPU is AM2+, both aren't compatible.

You can use an AM3 CPU in an AM2+ mobo if it's supported, but never an AM2+ CPU in an AM3 mobo.

He's absolutely right. Gotta love AMD for putting DDR2 IMC's on their AM3 chips

The Athlon II X4 640 you have in there already is a better chip, even without the L3 cache.
