Can i use the amd 9370 with my sabertooth 990fx (NOT 2.0)! I dont have any intentions of overclocking. So can i use the stock 9370 with 990fx?

I'm not sure if you can, but I would say DON'T. The 9370 is really just an overclocked 8320/8350 with a bigger price tag and as such, is a complete waste of money.

Well, i didnt actually buy it, it was given to me, a present!

So should i try replacing it with another cpu? Cause i have no intentions of changing MoBo.

Yeah try to change it for FX-8350, you'll get small profit from it :)

The 9370 is not on this list. I think the 2.0 would support it, but yours doesn't. If you don't want to get a new motherboard, you'll have to settle for a FX-8350 (which will easily max out every modern game out there).
