Thanks for the replies so far.
I opened up my box to make sure which MB I have, and despite CPU-Z telling me I had the v2.0, the writing on the board itself says 1.0, But next to the CPU pin connector it does say AM2+ which means that the CPU will work without a hitch right?
My PSU is a 750W, so it should be fine then.
should w/o a hitch if its compatible.. i checked both v1 and v2 CPU support list and it doesnt have phenom II x4 940 listed
I was under the impression that phenom II would work in any motherboard that a Phenom would. Since it says socket am2+ and even the v1 has phenom quads listed as supported I think I'll take the chance and order it next week. If it fails I'll leave the cpu to sit in its box until I can afford a new motherboard. Thanks for your help Richdrizzy
