AM2+Proccessors

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Hi all, my motherboard is an asus m3n72-d

It only supports chips that are AM2+ 1 max.

I am i desperate need of recommendations of what AMD proccessor to get.

My current is a Phenom x4 9650 2.3ghz.

I am in desperate need of some help in this situation.

Could someone link me to a buyable processor that is better than my current one from a reputable UK website? Like ebuyer.

Thanks alot for the help.

AM2+ boards support some AM3 chips, like my board supports the Phenom X4 945, but not the 955 and up.

You can get a Phenom II X4 940.

It's a power thing. Best thing to do is email your motherboard manufacturer and ask them what AM3 processors if any your board will support.

And your board is a fire hazard with a 95w chip. And you've got a 125w in it. Have fun with that.

OP:
Your board has a 4+1 power phase. Try to stick with a 95w chip or less. You could possibly get by with a 125w quad, but only if you keep the overclock low.

Your board TECHNICALLY supports any AM3 chip. So you have any of AMD's line up to choose from. But avoid the x6 chips with your board, as the power phase's likely won't hold up to it.

I'd get an Athlon II x4 and overclock the snot out of it, or grab the Phenom II x4 955BE, and do a light overclock on it (say 3.6GHz or so).
