Closed Will AMD Phenom II X2 550 work on a M2N-E Mobo? Tags: CPUs AMD Phenom Last response: February 26, 2012 4:12 PM in CPUs Share N.Broekhuijsen CPUs Expert August 28, 2009 1:39:55 PM I am currently using a 5400 BE OC'ed to 3.2Ghz stable, but want to upgrade due to a bottleneck. My choices are Phenom 9500 2.2Ghz, (but figured out its not that great a buy) or AMD Phenom II X2 550 The second option supposedly will work better for gaming, + I could OC it to 3.8 ish Ghz. It also has a significantly higher cache. For gaming (which want) it is obviously the better choice. On the Asus website http://www.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=NFlvt10av3F7ayQ9 it does not show it, but I hear of people saying that it works. ( I will update my BIOS to newest version) Problem, I live outside of country (middle east), and will buy in NL, but I need to be sure that it is going to work before I buy it. also, I NEED to be able to OC. it is a MUST. also, if phenom 9500 is better tell me, but from what i've heard its not as great for gaming to to low core clock. any help would be appreciated TY otherwise any advice on other cpu for this mobo that would help increase performance within 100 euro (no more unfortunately thats the budget) More about : amd phenom 550 work m2n mobo | Report abuse Register or log in to remove N.Broekhuijsen CPUs Expert August 28, 2009 2:35:41 PM anybody? | Report abuse Best solution zwierdo August 28, 2009 3:05:49 PM It looks like your motherboard has an AM2 socket. The X2 550 is an AM3 socket, requiring an AM2+ or AM3 motherboard. | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>CPUs>Will AMD Phenom II X2 550 work on a M2N-E Mobo?> Related ressources: ForumMobo Asus M2N-E with Phenom II X4 970 BE ForumM2N-E and Phenom II X2 560 - speed mismatch ForumPhenom II X2 550 turns into a Phenom II X4 B50 ForumM2N-E + AMD Phenom II X4 940 ?
