if my M5A97 Evo motherboard doesn't support Amd Fx-9370?

So i recently found out that my Amd Fx-9370 isn't supported with my motherboard. ive also been have lock ups and was wondering if the freezing problem is caused from my cpu not being supported. if anyone could please

also to get into more detail about the freezing what happens is my screen freezes and can't move the mouse and the computer lights and fans continue to stay active.

if I am missing anything please tell me :D

Thanks,
Kyle

  1. I was looking at this motherboard http://www.computerlounge.co.nz/components/componentview.asp?partid=20016 but was also wondering if there is a cheaper one that supports my cpu.

    Yes, your board doesn't support the crazy high wattage that CPU requires (and very few boards do). You probably won't find a cheapish board that does because only high end boards have 220 watt support. I'll look around and let you know if i find something cheaper
  3. If you can return the motherboard, replace it with this one, it is the cheapest and pretty solid board that supports FX 9370

    and here is the CPU support list for the motherboard

    do you think this one will do http://www.pbtech.co.nz/index.php?z=p&p=MBDASR0327?
  5. No, I don't know of any AMD 970 chipset motherboards that support the FX-9370. These ASRock boards support it:
    990FX Extreme9
    Fatal1ty 990FX Professional

    GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 REV 4.0 also is okay.
  6. That point when im sitting on amd fx 9370 and ASUS M5A97 EVO R2.0 and running every game perfect. it does support the cpu.
