Asrock 970 Extreme 3 + AMD FX 8350?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Can it really be true, that the Asrock 970 Extreme 3 (not the 2nd Revision) doesn't support the AMD FX 8350?

I know it doesn't appear on the CPU supported list, but other AMD C0-revisions CPU (43XX, 63XX and even the FX8300) are supported.

I've tried to Google it, and people tells me it should be supported, and I keep seeing other people with same mobo + CPU for who it's working just fine, but when I boot my PC with it mounted, it shows no picture at all.

All my parts are confirmed working with a AMD Phenom II X4 955 CPU, so it can't be a problem due to other faulty hardware.

Did you update your BIOS to the latest version?

i have the asrock 970exteme3 motherboard and the amd fx 8350 installed as i reply here now. new bios updated. only i underclocked the board to 3.52 ghz. everything is stable in default except things start getting way too hot except at idle. seems to be okay at 3.52 ghz. at least at decent room temp the cpu stayed less than 49c.under load. i contacted customer support and they say it is not supported.
cheers

It should work, they simply didn't update the CPU support list (happens regularly). But, do a clear CMOS before trying again. I have the same mobo and i remember when i passed from Phenom to FX-6300 there was some trouble until i cleared the BIOS.

Previously had that board and it worked with my 8350 fine. I'd follow the above and clear the cmos.
