Here is what mobo:

CPU/Processor

Socket AM3 processor Memory support is limited to DDR3 modules only HyperTransport 3.0:
Faster system bus on hardware that supports HyperTransport 3.0. Split power planes allow separate power management for CPU and integrated memory controller for improved power savings. Supports the following processors:
AMD Phenom II X4 9xx/9xxe/8xx Quad-Core AMD Phenom II X3 7xx/7xxe Triple-Core AMD Phenom II X2 5xx AMD Athlon X4 6xx/6xxe AMD Athlon X3 4xx/4xxe AMD Athlon X2 2xx/2xxe



Max TDP = 95 Watt

Is it nothing to do with my new 965 3.4 Ghz-125W?

It is unfortunate that you are not able to check what CPU's are supported by your motherboard. I guess the only good solution is to buy a new motherboard that can support up to 125w ( some motherboards even support up to 140w ). Just try to sell your old X4 910 and old motherboard as a package to get back your new motherboard expense.

This is not a power issue. It would still work initially. It would just blow up the board sooner or later.

Your board doesn't support this cpu stepping......If I understand you correctly.

Hi all
I search alot of mobo. But it seem like mobo NOT showing watts of CPU using?

How can I identify mobo which is support power using of CPU?

Motherboard specifications may not directly state TDP but you can see in CPU type:
Look at these two examples:
This states CPU supported without exceptions:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

This one states that it will support up to 95w TDP only.

How about this one?

Is it good, please let me know. Thank you

Yes, that is fine. I built two PC's using this board. And as linked by Timop, it does support the X4 965 and even the X6's.
It is a good upgrade for motherboard.
