Ecs mcp61pm am dual core am2 motherboard compatible CPUs Tags: CPUs AMD ECS Compatibility Motherboards Last response: March 15, 2010 8:52 AM in CPUs Share Domino_49 March 8, 2010 3:01:55 PM Hello, I have a ECS MCP61PM-AM AM2 Motherboard. I currenty have a AMD 64X2 4000+ 2.1Ghz CPU installed. I just tried to install an AMD 64X2 5600+ 2.9 Ghz and my system went nuts. Now, after VERY EXTENSIVE research, I've discovered that the 5600+, although advertised as an AM2 socket, is actually an "AM2+" socket. Grrrrrrrrrrrrr...!!! Which "AVAILABLE" AMD 64 X2 CPU's are compatible with my motherboard?

But there are other limitations like bios support and chipset support. Like SAAIELLO said, update your bios. | Report abuse Domino_49 March 15, 2010 8:52:31 AM I updated my BIOS and I'm still getting a system freeze, but only with the new CPU, after boot, after windows vista loads.
