Is MOBO - ASUS M5A97 EVO R2.0 compatible with the AMD AM3+ FX 8350

Folks

Is the ASUS M5A97 EVO R2.0 compatible with the AMD AM3+ FX 8350

I had recently bought the AMD FX 8350 and ASROCK 970 Extreme 4 as a bundle without checking the specs, and now found the AS Rock website does not list the 8350 as compatible (and their support says there are "issues").

So trying not to make the same mistake again but ASUS do not provide a CPU Support list for their MOBO's.

Thanks

  1. Yes they do, you just didn't find it. The ASUS M5A97 EVO supports all FX-8350 CPUs.

  2. I have an ASUS M5A97 R2.0 and a FX-8350 and the mobo does support it out of the box.
