Solved MoBo upgrade for Phenom II X4 Tags: Motherboards Chipsets CPUs Phenom Last response: July 3, 2011 2:24 PM in Motherboards Share olsalex July 2, 2011 8:41:26 PM Current CPU - Phenom II X4 920. Current chipset - 740G w/ DDR2 modules. If I'd get me a 970 chipset w/ DDR3 modules, will I be able to: a) stick my CPU on it. If yes, will I have some RAM speed limitations? b) get me a Bulldozer later on? Thanks in advance.
