Reading that first review, theres only one chip that will work on it 'out of the box'
Best imo to check a few AMD chips on the Asus site for compatability then re-post asking between those chips you cant decide between.
Quote from Asus response on that review


*Manufacturer Response:D ear Valued Customer,
This is true. Always check our CPU compatibility list at http://support.asus.com for the motherboard/CPU in question before you make your purchase.

The C3 X4 965 (125W) needs BIOS revision 0605 or newer in order to be recognized by the motherboard. The X4 965 (140W) will work with this board from the initial BIOS revision on.

The next shipments of this model motherboard will have the latest BIOS revision, 0605.

Best Regards,

ASUS Support Team*

So I'd beware of what chip you get,just in case :)

^ Remember that that review is approximately nine months old, and I'm pretty sure newegg would have received new shipments of those motherboards with an updated BIOS which may support the Phenom II X4 965 C3.
