My friend got this Gateway LX awhile ago and he was wondering if the motherboard will work with a phenom II 920. The motherboard has a phenom I 9500 right now. The cerial number on the motherboard is no where to be found and it seems to be a pretty basic motherboard. Does anyone know the generic motherboard that comes with the Gateway LX desktop? And if so, is it compatible with a phenom II 920?

Could you use a CPU-Z and identify your mobo? According to the Gateway site, all LX series uses Intel Quads.

RS780 isn't the model number. it is the AMD chipset 780G aka RS780.

Best way to know is to ask Gateway or check this one. http://support.gateway.com/s/MOTHERBD/INTEL/m00286/4000...

Check if it has bios updates for the new Phenom chips.

I have the AMD Phenom II 720 X3 at 95watts running fast on mine as I'm writing this. LX6200 With most stock componants. Notica NH-U9B CPU cooler, LG Blu-ray player and 120mm rear case fan all system temps stay under 40c at a full load. Need to update my bios, still showing unknown AMD CPU. But let me tell you what a difference, blazing fast and no video/audio jitters anymore. I'm running HTPC with 32" visio on HDMI. Writing this and surfing while watching media center in small window. CPU still doesn't pass 50% use when watching Blu-ray and doing these same things. Don't know if it can handle 125Watts or I'd have a 955 X4 in it.
