Phenom II on AM2+ board

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Ok, Ive read some stuff on the internet about am3 cpus on am2+ boards and from everything i read it seems like ill be ok as long as i dont fill all the memory slots. So as you can see on my specs i have 1066Mhz memory but it runs at 800 with the cpu i have. So i want to upgrade the cpu before i get a new motherboard and eventially ddr3 memory. So I was wondering what i can expect out of this board. The specs say max bus speed is 2600Mhz and 1066Mhz memory. So can I expect these numbers with a Phenom II or should i should i get a am2 phenom. If its going to get me those numbers then i can get a cheaper cpu. So if anyone has done this or knows about this let me know. Thanx a lot

How many RAM DIMMs do you have? 1066 DDR2 is usually only supported 1 DIMM per channel with AM2+ boards.

You may need to simply manually set the RAM multiplier in your BIOS.

I had the m3n78 pro, pretty much the same but with an nvidia chipset. I ran my 955 fine with 2x2GB DDR800 5-5-5.

I think the 2600MHz is the CPU-NB speed, the HT link should be around 2000MHz.
