I was wondering if my Biostar TA770 A2+ motherboard can handle this AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2 GHz 4x512 KB L2 Cache Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor - Retail HDZ955WFGBMBOX. I was about to buy but then i read that some motherboards only can only handle 95w CPUs. This one is 125w. I cannot find anywhere on the motherboard manual that says it can handle so and so wattage. Please help... Thanks in advance.
X4 955BE is a AM3 CPU that has a tdp of 125watts. Some of the early AMD 770 / SB600 had issues with that high rated CPU's and are limited to tdp of 95watts. I have one of those boards from Gigabyte and they did not bother with BIOS updates for AM3 CPU support.
