I'm afraid. I do not want to break the pc

I can't guarantee it mate. However, worst case scenarios is that the computer won't boot with the chip. There is no risk of any real damage.

Have you tried using the "load optimized defaults" option in the BIOS?

Microcenter has a combo deal for this (February deal)
AMD FX-4100 + ASUS M5A78L-M LX PLUS for a total of $100 + Tax (after $10 rebate) only!!

sooo....i Bought this yesterday, got it up and running today. smile.gif

setup was for girlfriend, and it works fine to do everything it's supposed to do.
but i Personally i would not choose this mobo for my own setup.

CPU Throttling happens a LOT,
feels like i wasted a "unlock multiplier" cpu by doing this, cuz it'll go down to 16.5x(under load) no matter how high i set it.
probably gonna turn it back down to 4.0ghz @ 1.425v... dont wanna blow a VRM

It also did not have IDE slot...as i have a few old hard drives i would like to reuse frown.gif

her setup right now:
AMD FX-4100 (4.12ghz @ 1.45v) 45'C under prime95
250fsb / 2500 NB / 2000 HT

ASUS M5A97L-M LX PLUS Motherboard
OCZ Fatal1ty Modular 550Watts
Patriot Sector 5 Ram @ 1333mhz (8-8-8 timing)
GeForce 9800 GTX+

thought of that too, it seems most of the new Motherboards dont give IDE slots anymore frown.gif

and a PCIe IDE card is like 20 bucks.

anyone know what's the CPU Overclock limit (speed or voltage) of this board? the ASUS M5A78L-M LX PLUS is rated for 125watt, but it's only a 3+1 board i think.

would be good to know how far i can push the FX-4100 without breaking the VRMs frown.gif
