I was just wondering what are the top 3 processor that I can upgrade my cpu to? without having to do any fancy stuff. I just wanna buy the new processor and drop it in right away. Can anyone help me please. Thanks so much!

My budget is 50-100. Thanks!

Any Athlon II or a Phenom II up to a x4 945 will work out of the box. The trick will be finding one.
The x4 955 or higher will need the workaround.see first page of this thread.

There is a sale going on in my areas or b97 and b93 amd processor. Will this work in my m2n-sli?
post #10494 of 12343
I just upgraded my cpu to phenom ii x4 945 and it works great with bios 5001, I would not recommend you to go and buy higher cpu as you will have to play around with settings to get it working properly. also, if you buy this cpu I strongly recommend staying with 5001 and not upgrading to 1804 BIOS as this bios will not recognize that cpu. another thing I will advise you to plug your keyboard and mouse in to ps/2 port instead of usb port, otherwise you will have a cold boot.

I am very happy with this small and inexpensive upgrade.

The B97 = x4 955 so will need the workaround.
The B93 = x4 925(C2 stepping) and should work ok out of the box.

It's a version/revision number for the cpu. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stepping_level

C2 is older,C3 is newer.

So I would have to ask if the CPU i am buying is a c2?
post #10499 of 12343
Only if you are looking for older cpus,like the B93/925.
The 955 and up are C3 as are the Athlon II's.
Older cpu's like the x4 920/925/940,x3 720 are C2
