Hey guys I have an AMD Athlon 2 X4 and a Gigabyte GA-78 LMt USB3 motherboard with a 760g chipset. Would I be able to put an AMD fx 6300 in my motherboard? Looking to upgrade my cpu since I blew out my old one. (Had it oc'ed stable at 3.5 ghz, base clock was 2.9. Got it up to 3.68 once.) I am on a very low budget so I can't really upgrade my motherboard at this time.

Yes the FX will work in that board just do not expect overclocking.

yes, but you'll need to make sure you have all your updates on it.

update the bios, then download all new mobo/chipset drivers.

the ga-78 wouldn't be able to recognize thee 6300 otherwise


Awesome thanks so much!

You can still overclock to at least 4.0ghz. I have that motherboard with an FX 8320 running @ FX 8350 speeds. Haven't had a problem yet and it gets used quite a bit by family for playing WoW.
