I've got a lot of blue screens lately. So i enquired about it with Asus team. They said, the motherboard i have, support the Athlon64 X2 6000+ processor with 89W only... not the 125W version i'm using. What to do now.... ?
Config:
Athlon64 X2 6000+ Windsor core @ 3GHz
ASUS M3N-H/HDMI
Corsair XMS2 PC2-6400 2x2GB Kit
MSI HD4850 512MB

There isn't much that can be done since the boards capabilities are really up to 89W.

What do you recommend? Changing processor or changing board?

Obviously,,change the mobo with a newer mobo you will have more options as regards cpu upgrading..:)

+1. Exactly, you have more upgrade options with a new motherboard.

You can reduce the actual power it consumes by reducing CPU core voltage. You can probably do a small decrease without even dropping CPU speed, but enhanced power saving will require some speed reduction.

You mean...by activating stuff like "Cool'n Quiet"

Does it make sense changing Core Voltage in Bios....?

Yes, you can undervolt and underclock in the BIOS. Also, what is your PSU?

You can actually see huge reductions in CPU power consumption at relatively small reductions in voltage. If you really want to find out if it's a power problem, that's not too tough to do.

o.k........ then, a small reduction from actual voltage will do... let me check..

You may also have to downclock it since it may not be able to Run at 3GHz with a lower voltage. What is it's current VCore? That CPU uses like a 1.4 (or possibly a 1.35) I believe.

In CPU-Z, it shows Core Voltage as 1.488V

my 5600 windsor runs at 1.33v

I'm planning to change the processor to X2 7850BE...
