  1. Check out this link: http://www.cpu-upgrade.com/mb-ASUS/M2N68-AM.html
    Looks like its implying you need to download the suggested Bios for compatibility?
    Edit: You should be good to go!
  2. Hello bigbadron, welcome to THW.

    From what I cant tell your motherboard you listed is socket AM2+/AM2 and the AMD CPU you are asking about is a socket AM3.

    As far as I know AM3 CPU's are backwards compatible with the AM2+/AM2 socket. Here is an article witht he details: http://arstechnica.com/hardware/news/2009/01/quick-reminder-am3-chips-compatible-with-am2am2-boards.ars


    This is directly from Asus's website:
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Circuit board ver. / Bios Ver.

    Phenom IIX4 955 (HDX955FBK4DGI),3.2GHz,125W,rev.C2,SocketAM3,Quad-Core ------------- 2.00G / 0504

    Phenom IIX4 955 (HDZ955FBK4DGM),3.2GHz,125W,rev.C3,SocketAM3,Quad-Core---------------- ALL / 0603

    It would probably be best to make sure you get the AMD 955 rev.C3 and update your bios to version 0603(which is very easy to do with ASUS Mobo's)

    Hope that helps :)
