  1. It should post; the 605e only uses 45 watts. The board might list it as "unknown cpu" but it should still run. Where did you find the 605e. I can't find it anywhere in the usa.

    Found the 605e on the Buy.com website for $151.00
  3. Thank you. Will have to undervolt a 620 instead.
  4. Let me guess...
    you're trading out a 235e dual for a 605e quad right?
    I asked this same exact question in the ECS mobo section:
    http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/270404-30-mcp61pm-athlon-iix4-605e

    an obvious 'yes' is the answer due to the fact both run at 45 watts.
    As long as it is under 89 watts the GM will run it.
