CPU support list. All your going to have to do is update your bios and it will support most if not all AM3 processors. I did this with my AM2/AM2+ board just this week.

Yes it'll work fine. But your board, being a 4+1 power phase, you should leave it at stock speeds to keep the VRM's from popping .

ok cool, i have ordered that proccessor hopefully it'll do me good!

ASUS VRMs are actually half decent and this one, additionally, is heatsinked, but I would indeed be wary with a 125W processor... you'll have to limit your overclocking and max clocks/voltage.

You can get a Phenom II X4 940.
TDP problem? They are the same chip dude


and OP, go with the 945, it's relatively cheap, and will steam roll that Phenom I like a bug on a windshield

The 955 is an amazing chip. It won't disappoint . If you ever step up into a better motherboard, you could reach 4.0GHz more than likely with it .

The processor is coming tommorow, is there anything else i should do or need to know before installation? I think my bios is pretty much up to date, anyone got any words of wisdom for me?
