Amd ok Mobo

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Allright I have this processor, and I dont know if its good, Pins all there looks good just dont know if it will work or not. If I put it into a new Mobo it shouldnt cause any problems with the Mobo should it. Its the 955 so no reason to get a new cpu if it works, But I just dont want it smoking my new mobo. Or even if you buy a used processor from some one, it would suck if it damaged other components. Any help appreciated.

it wouldn't affect your mobo even if it's not working. if the processor is dead then it won't boot. it wouldn't burn your motherboard or anything.

Cool thanks, It just hit me, I was about to put a family members computer together, And nothing worse than destroying a whole system, cause of used equipment. If Memory is a issue computer will boot, right. But wont display windows if I'm correct. But that wont effect components either if you buy used and its bad.

MSI 955-G65?
More info please?
If this is anything but the 890FXA-GD65..... then there would indeed be a risk of destroying the whole system

I would recommend buying a lower-power processor for a family build. A 95W Athlon II x4, heck maybe even an Athlon II x2, will be just enough.
