If i pop my new opteron into the 939

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
socket where my present Newscastle is sitting set on 1.6 vcore will the BIOS recognise the new chip and reset the vcore to the Otys voltage or do I need to do that pre-install? (Already flashed the BIOS to 1016 to support the opteron) Ive obviously never upgraded a chip within the same socket archetecture before

If the voltage is set on AUTO in your bios, then it will set it to the Opterons settings when it is inserted.
