Hey, I was wondering if the FX8320 would work with an Asrock 970 Extreme4. On Asrocks site it doesn't show the FX8320 is supported but it is 8 core cpu ready. Also the max cpu wattage for the mobo is 140w and the FX8320 is 125w. And I've heard it works fine but I'm just checking right now if you guys would think this would work?
It should work just fine out of the box as long as you order it from somewhere like newegg or amazon because they normally supply the most up to date versions of the boards. It will require the p2.0 bios but if you look here http://www.cpu-upgrade.com/mb-ASRock/970_Extreme4.html you will see it is fully supported. I would just contact newegg over the phone and see what bios version they are shipping out on that motherboard
