More about will work
  1. Wattage wise

    9950be > 965

    It will work.

    Just might need a BIOS update.
  2. thxs will be buying the 965 very soon by any chance how high could i over clock this without frying my mobo???
  3. there are both 140w+125w version of the 9950, make sure ur board can support 140w cpus and get a bios update if you run into any issues
