Will a AMD FX-8320 Vishera 3.5GHz work in my ASRock 970 Extreme4 motherboard?
I have an ASRock 970 Extreme4 motherboard. I'm looking for a decent affordable CPU for building a gaming rig. I found the AMD FX-8320 Vishera 3.5GHz (4.0GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W Desktop Processor FD8320FRHKBOX on NewEgg for $160. Would this work in my motherboard? It says that the motherboard supports Socket AM3+, 8core CPU's up to 140 Watts. I have a Radeon HD7950 GPU and the CPU should work well with that, but I don't want to go much over $160 for the CPU.
