AMD Phenom II X4 Quad Core 955 Compatibility issues

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hay people i just got my AMD Phenom II X4 Quad Core 955 black and 1000w rocket-fish gaming power supply is the mail today and tryed to set it up on my MB "a Foxconn M61PMV ya i no its a crap MB but im getting a new one next pay:)".

When i booted up my rig up it flicked on and off , on and off, looked to see if i mis-handled the power supply or the CPU but all was in order. The Foxconn site said the 955 had no Compatibility issues with the M61PMV im i missing something if anyone of you guys can help i will be grateful ty.drunken.gif

95w max motherboard
125w max cpu
so you could run into trouble with it,smells of electrical fire etc,a more versatile mobo seems to be an idea

i hate to say it. But your motherboard is not a area where you want to skimp out on amd setups. Your better off going full am3 with ddr3 as you cant find any decent boards that support 125 watt+ processors that dont have a 4 phase vrm design.Unless u want to buy a used board.Even then they are hard to find
