ASRock N61P-S AM3 support Tags: Motherboards Support CPUs ASrock Last response: December 20, 2010 2:49 PM in Motherboards Share VGKitov December 17, 2010 12:35:35 PM Hello, A friend of mine wants to upgrade his CPU, but when i checked his Mobo (ASRock N61P-S) CPU support i found something strange: *If you use AM3 / AM2+ CPU on AM2 chipset motherboard, the system bus speed will downgrade from HT3.0 (5200 MT/s) to HT1.0 (2000 MT/s), but the CPU frequency will not be influenced. I have never seen this type of Mobo and I would like someone to explain how will this limitation affect the CPU performance?
